Free on Fridays: Are You a Frankenquilter?

My House #8
Have you made one of these? This little quilt is a Frankenquilt. A Frankenquilt is made from parts of other quilts, fused scraps that are salvaged and saved in mounds on your work table. By using the discarded quilt parts, a new quilt is born! We have life!
Red Rain
The Frankenquilt can be a little scary. Here you see a very large vase next to a very small house. What was I thinking?

Would you like to be a Frankenquilter? Then please leave a comment on my blog today and you may be the lucky winner of a bag of fused Frankenquilt scraps so you can make your own scary art work.

And here's a little secret: beginning Monday we have a whole slew of give aways from Accuquilt!
