Scrap Quilt # 31 – Carol Ann Ripped Another!

The Racing Stripe

I   L O V E   Carol Ann’s scraps and cut-up tops. I can’t imagine making something and cutting holes in it and not using all the wonderful fabric in something. Carol Ann gave me her red and black pagoda quilt top she made and then added her Century Log Cabin blocks and her special pieced miniature blocks. She didn’t like the final look so she cut ou those  she added and gave e the top with big holes in it. I cut as many of the same size squares I could and then pieced the rest into squares. She had a racing stripe border that wasn’t big enough to go all the way around the top so I cut it in 4 equal pieces and then added to both end s to make it work. I love this top. Red is my favorite color and I just like the finished look.
