Spring Blooms and Blossoms.

She's a springy quilt.

A scrappy quilt.

A throw size quilt.
AND....
She's also....
a TWIN size quilt.

This pattern is now in my etsy shop.

I'm REALLY curious to know how she'll make up in
CHRISTMAS colors!!!

I THINK I know how to find out!!!

Monday Making


This week I hope to add a border to ALL these scraps!
Wonder what color it will be??
I could choose almost ANY color
and it would WORK!
;)

This quilt uses a lot of older fabrics...
and to me, it looks like it belongs in a cabin somewhere.
The quilt block I used is called a
HALF log cabin.

I had some leftover blocks from a class I took
a LONG time ago.
One thing led to another...
I began making more blocks
and NOW there's almost a QUILT!!!!

What are YOU making???

Monday Making

There's a theme going on in my sewing room.


It seems I'm on a baby quilt KICK!

has a quilt along going
and I succumbed.
I began a NEW quilt with others still unfinished.
Surprise. surprise!!!

Once I began sewing strings together...
I couldn't STOP!!!

The tiniest little pieces were used to make
this adorable pincushion!!!

Yeah for teeny tiny scraps!!!

What are YOU making this week??
