Scrap Scramble - block #9 plus ....

I spent Monday making up this block.  It was  tedious work, and  I was glad to see it finished.   This completes the nine, 12 inch blocks needed for my Scrap Scramble quilt plan.


Carol Doak's block # 171




Then I moved on to the 36 units needed for the border.  Some of them  are displayed here.


You can see all the blocks made for this project on the Scrap Scramble page.

I think this completes all the units for the quilt top.  Now ready to plan the assembly and quilting.  Everything came out of the scrap bins except for the white background.  I wish I could say it made a dent.

I'm linking up with  Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation where you will discover a wonderful selection of quilters projects.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Scrap Scramble - more blocks


This past week I was able to work on my scrap scramble bom project.  I got several blocks finished.....almost there.   These are the 12 inch blocks.  I took a different path from Carol's Scrap Scramble with my project.  I have a layout planned out in EQ - just waiting for the blocks to be finished.....one more 12 inch block and several border blocks to get done.  I am very happy that it is being made from the scrap bins.


July, 14 block




August, 14 block

You can see all the other blocks for this project on my Scrap Scramble page.  

I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times  for Design Wall Monday and Connie at Freemotion by the River for Linky Tuesday where you will find lots of other projects being created.

CCQ # 4

This little quilt was created by many hands.  The bow tie blocks were part of a donation to our quilt club. Bev M  sashed and pieced it together during a charity sewing workshop in July.  I quilted it up and so it is ready for donation.
