All That Jazz Finish from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 For the past few years, I have really been focusing on my scraps to make all of my quilts.

When  a friend shared some beautiful leftover prints with me, I went to my stash and pulled some coordinating fabrics to make myself a quilt.  

I decided to use my All That Jazz pattern - I really didn't want to cut these fabrics up into tiny pieces.  I love the bold geometric feel this pattern has.

I am really smitten with the orchid and gold color combination with the berry colors.  I hope to remodel my living room one of these ...
