?##@@!!##@@?????


Some of you are probably looking at this and saying "What the SCRAP is that?"

Well...it is my surprise for you in a few weeks....but.....I am not happy with how it is turning out, so I have already taken off two borders...you guessed it...."SCRAP"!.....going to the scrap bin.

So, if you happen to be coming by and leisurely reading my blog and want to just head on out to another blog...feel free to do so...but.....one word of advice, it would be to your advantage to comment on this. That is all I have to say about that. Don't you just love Forest Gump???

Oh, and I can tell you another thing...here is a hint,,, KONA BAY (not all those fabrics are kona bay but some are)...if you are interested in Kona bay fabrics....check out my nieces blog "INCH WORM FABRICS", infact, that is why I am making said item......for her wonderful grand opening in a few weeks (I think I can get it done before them??????).....

I think I can!!

I think I can!!

The little quilter that could!! and will!!

Hmmm, are you sure ripping was involved? It just looks like a pile of noodles or worms or whatever they call them. :) Good luck untangling them! :))

Shari said...

I just love your expression "What the Scrap is that" - I will so totally use that, thank you! I know you will persevere and make something wonderful...

Jean said...

That almost sounds like a threat...comment or else...lol..maybe I should try that.

lesthook said...

Had to go double check and yes! I do have some of the same wisteria fabric! Or at least it sure clooks the same.

Gene Black said...

Ha...I did some ripping today too. I took off a binding and replaced it. (not a fun chore)

I like the lavender and green together.

Dayna said...

I love scrap....some of the best quilts are made from scrap!

Pokey said...

Well, sometimes you sew, and sometimes you unsew. But then, if you resew and it makes you happy, it's all a box of chocolates, huh? Hope your new seams seem correct next time... :-} pokey

Carin said...

I am sure that what ever you are making it will be beautiful. I can't wait to see it.

Joyful Quilter said...

Hmmm....love mystery's. But no fair, I can't read the last page to find out what's going on. I'll keep checking your blog (and your nieces) to find out how the plot thickens.

I may be a little confused here, but I sure can take a hint! I love Kona bay fabrics, so I am intrigued! I live in Hawaii and am always anxious to see what is going on in other Island Nations!

Hello Barb, looks like we both had a day like that...unfortunately I could not scrap the blocks I was working on... as that was all the fabric I had...I bought a piece of Kona fabric on ebay two years ago...with a kimono featured...Jessies boyfriend loved it so I made him a quilt with it...Hugs Lyn

Lovely fabrics! I've checked out your niece's site but now I need to make a decision on what I can't live without.

Crispy said...

Pretty fabrics!!! I love ol' Forrest!! Life is like a box of chocolates...you never know what you will get, but as long as you are willing to take a border off here and there I'm sure it will be wonderful.

I have checked out her site, I really like it, so easy to use and move around. I will be back! Also, I love the scrapes and cannot wait to see the project. Glad things are starting to settle down for you. How is the your hubby's office looking?

The scraps look gorgeous to me! Kona Bay fabric is, without a doubt, my very favourite fabric!

Did a little ripping out myself this weekend...but looks like you won!

I just love the fabric you use! It's all so different than what I can get here!

I love how it's so bold and bright... happy sewing, even if it takes another unexpected turn!

Debi said...

Scrap is good....still waiting to hear from the post office...not a happy camper.

Well, it is an awful pretty pile of scrap!

Deborah said...

Ooohhh, I love the Ginger Jars quilts featured on your nieces site. I'm sure whatever you make will be great - you can do it. Yes you can! Yes you can!! Yes you can!!!

quiltmom said...

HI Barb,
Thanks for coming to join as a follower to my blog. I am honored that you would choose to do so.

I am sure that whatever you are making is going to be beautiful.
And scraps are wonderful- one person's scraps is another persons treasures to make more quilts with.

I have been thinking about you and yours and hopeing that things are beginning to work and get easier for people. What a challenging time for all of you.

Regards,
Anna

can't wait to see how it turns out. I am hopeless at using up scraps. I amass them all thinking of a project worthy of pretty scraps...only, I never find a project and i end up with a scrap mountain.
