Saturdays Scraps

Welcome back for another week of scrappy goodies!

Haven't had the opportunity to do much sewing this week - have been hand sewing some Green Tea and Sweet Beans blocks, and doing s bit of work on my swap blocks with Australia Quilt Swap Blocks.  I've also  been busy with Doll Quilts, as they are due soon as well!

So one day through the week, I collected all the scrappy tops that I have ready to be backed and bound - I was surprised at just how many there are!



There are 5 small quilts hanging on this clothe hanger, all waiting patiently


This is one from the previous photo that I haven't shown you before
 the centre fabric in each block is a real favourite of mine, so I decided on a bird quilt with it! I love how it turned out!


4 large quilts - single, double and queen sized ones here!


I still love this tumbler quilt to pieces!


And this blocks one, which was the beginning of the scrap bin clear out!

So this week I have decided to visit all the second hand stores in my area, looking for old sheets to back the quilts with - batting will probably be old blankets - I love being frugal!!


Poor little Priscilla had such a busy day today!~


So did our Tommy boy - isn't he just so regal!!?

So join in below  if you have some scrappy fun to share, won't you?

Great fabrics! Hope you find the time to finish them up! I think we all have unfinished quilt tops hanging around. I'm still trying to get rid of my pile! Your pups are adorable!

Sharyn I don't know how you do it! So much work in all those quilts. Lovely to see the furry kids sitting on some homemade beauties as well.
