Saturdays Scraps

Hi everyone, glad to see you back!

Did you see the gorgeous quilts from last week, that Jean from Selep Imaging joined in with? They were simply beautiful!

We could all do that too, you know. We just have to believe we can, and we will!

Well I have had a busy week, what with learning html(!!) and sewing, the week just flew by!

I have begun tying my quilt, I'm about 20% through it now - boy, it does take some time (and it gets VERY boring!)...




Today I started sewing up all those millions of half square triangles that I have in a container ( we all have them, don't we? Can't throw them out, but don't know what to do with them?)
Mine are about to become the next round of the next medallion quilt ( which may have changed since last week - why can't i just start one thing and finish it??)


So here are a few of the triangles, only a small amount - I still  have half a million more to sew - it takes forever, along with some more bits and bobs:


I was thinking of using this star for a centre, what do you think about that?  It's a Malka Dubrawsky collection of  prints  - by Moda of course! We DON'T go there, do we? Anyhow I want to use them up, so this seemed a good way to do just that!


So please let me know what you think of that little bit as well, won't you?

So join in below, and let's see what you are doing at the moment.

Hi Shaz,
I spent the last couple of days going through my stash to make squares and strips, and leave larger pieces for another different project. I offered to ship small scraps as a giveaway on my blog...just to move them out and make room for more. My how they multiply! Next year, I would like to devote specific tasks to each day and get into a rhythm of quilting. I love so much of what you do like this. Thanks for your inspiration.
