RE THINKING, THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS

Yesterday I got the Pin Curl Quilt (see picture on post below this one) pinned and ready to quilt.

One thing that I did not like about the Pin Curl pattern is that there were a lot of left over scraps...so this is what I am doing with my scraps.... (really scrappy huh???)  I was going to do them in nine patch but re thought it and ended up with this.


 Then as I had said in a previous post, my sister, Beverly made the Pin Curl quilt in her Marblelicious fabrics and I asked for her scraps (well...she volunteered the fabric and I said no...then re thought it and asked for it a few days later).  Here is what I am doing with hers.

No...Beverly, you can not have your scraps back!!!



Have any of you been to Inchworm Fabrics lately?  If not...you really should go and take a gander....

I did, had to re think my order several times....and oh...how I love this fabric....did I say extremely love???  Accuquilt has the Train die (which I have) and it would go perfect for this fabrics....can't wait to get it.  Not like I don't have enough to do.


  Then there are these owls...oh my stinking gosh....


Her prices are amazing, these are five dollars a  yard...sold by the half yard ...

Also, did any of you know that Island Batik has a free pattern site?  Quilted In Honor  - loves these quilts, wonderful for our Wounded Warriors, Operation Homefront, and Quilts of Valor...great patterns for all of these.

Can't you tell I am so indecisive today...don't know if I want to quilt the Pin Curl quilt, work on my scraps or Beverly's....or clean house....gosh...what is a gal to do?????

  5. Giggle.....that would be good. Give your scraps away, wait until they are sewn and ask for them back. Hmmmmm.....I might need to try that.

  11. One thing I know for sure. A quilter is not supposed to clean her house when there are scraps to play with! I love anything scrappy. Can't wait to see what you create!

  12. What a wonderful way to use those scraps! Beautiful. Doesn't it make you feel good to make something from "nothing."

  13. If I had to choose a project I'd be indecisive too.....but in my case....that would be due to having to move a ton of stuff out of the way to even see my sewing machine. YIKES

    Love your scrappy quilt....I don't like it when people say "scrappy" and it doesn't look scrappy at all....yours does.
