Seeing my piles of scraps, as some of you may have, and being influenced to join in the Scrappy Quilts Group, Leaders and Enders, my goal for 2015 will be to make 12 scrap quilts.

I have so appreciated the encouragement and wonderful comments on the quilts I have completed thus far. Now to move forward some more.
