RSC16 - Browns

The first pic shows my rows for the sampler quilt.  I made my blue row with 9 blocks, 81 inches. In keeping with the 81 inch length for the brown row, I made 13 - 6" blocks plus a half block.  I altered my block style slightly to accommodate the little pink corner squares.  I like how it looks.  I love the splash of adding the accent color.




I also got the brown bear paw block done.  Here is a pic of the first two blocks together.




I've been revamping some of my blog pages.  I'll be collecting photos for these projects there.

 I'm linking up with Angela at Soscrappy today.  Visit there to see what everyone else is making with their brown scraps this month.

THanks so much for stopping by.

Nap in a Bag

Here is a worthy afternoon project -  a nap in a bag.  I needed a birthday present for a 3 year old for this saturday.  A piece of fleece and some pretty cotton made it all come together.  Actually, I made 2 sets.  I have one in reserve.  lol  I found the free project here: http://www.sew4home.com/projects/bed-linens/nap-bag-blanket-pillow-matching-bag.  This file is quite lengthy with detailed photos for instructions, so I typed up my own 'condensed' version which should make it quick work for the next set I make.




I'm linking up with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social.  Hop over there to check out what other creative quilters are working on today.

RSC16 - Blues 2

Here is a photo of my design wall today.  January is the month of new starts.  This photo shows the beginnings of 6 quilts.  I shouldn't be proud.  LOL   4 of the new projects will be from the scrap bins.  I have the column sampler row in the far left, then what I call the indian hatchet,  then the crayon quilt  and finally the bear paw.






 Maybe I over did it this year.   Last year I only made the sampler.  BTW, I'm still stitching down the binding on that one.......... nearly finished.

The seminole band No. 1 comes next.  This is a new project at Morning Glory Designs.

Then just this week someone steered me to the Vintage Blooms BOM at Sentimental Stitches.  Since it had some embroidery, I couldn't resist.'

I think that is enough new starts for me!  I'm linking up with Angela at Soscrappy.

Sunday is the time to show off your scrappy accomplishments  with Cynthia for Oh Scrap Sunday.

Visit these sites to see what everyone else is making with their scraps!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
