Aren't Scrap Quilts Great..

I love scrap quilts so when my Twisted Sisters wanted us to each make the same pattern to see what the differences would be, I was in!

First of all, rummage through those boxes of scraps.

Oh, I remember that fabric but didn't think I had any left at all, but it will work good in this quilt.  I don't know how many times I said that, but, I was able to pull out all the fabric I needed.  The only thing is, I still have piles of pieces!  This quilt didn't make a dent.

Here it is finished (but where are the rest of them?)  Come on girls, lets get working on them!
Today I started a Casserole Cover (if I'd gotten to work earlier in the day it would have been finished).  Will post when it's finished.

Have a good week everyone, and may your bobbins always be full!

We've gotten a few projects finished!

I've finally gotten the little baby quilt finished.  It looks great now that it's quilted.  Should I make a crib sheet to match?  I used a matching yellow fabric on the back that has rattles and sayings - thought it would be good for a sheet.  Any suggestions?


 Here's the little twister wreath done, just a bow to add.  My twisted sister did a great job and I'm sure whoever receives it will love it.

The other girls are still working on their applique blocks.  I'm sure they will be lovely when completed but it may be a while yet.  Aren't they looking good?

Here's my project.  This pillow pattern is from The Quilt Company.  They have so many great patterns and I couldn't resist this one.  Those cute little gingerbread and heart buttons put the finishing touch on it.  I'm wondering if I'm becoming addicted to pillows - I love to have them sitting around. 

I'm going to show you how to construct these pillows so come back and see how they're made. 

In the meantime, may your bobbins always be full.
