We're unabashed fans of Laurie Simpson - her quilts, her fabrics and her superior skillz with doing scrappy well. 

This is Broken Dishes - it's Laurie's third block for Block Heads 3.  It's Block 36.

Block 32 - Beeskep and Flower.  After all that applique, there was a trimming error... oh well.  Laurie said it won't be noticeable after this is quilted, and she rather likes these kinds of "human touch" moments in quilts.

Laurie's Block 34 - Fulfillment.  We love that she fussy-cut a star from her spectacular star print from Mackinac Island

Isn't this mix of Minick & Simpson collections gorgeous?  I told you Laurie knows how to do scrappy.
