Two G's and One M

A couple of weeks ago, I took a fun class at Just Sew in Highland to make monogrammed letters from scraps and a fat quarter for the background. I have lots of scraps so I thought this would be a great way to use some of them (I even cut a few little pieces from the scraps I received in the scrap swap...leaving plenty to still make my project with them, of course). I made an M...obviously for my last name. It was so fun and easy to make and it went together so quickly, that I decided to make a couple of G's...one for my parents and one for my brother and sister-in-law...all with my maiden last name. I bought a few inexpensive frames at Wal-Mart and viola....
Such a fun and creative way to use scraps! Now, on to make some for my husband's side of the family. =)
