Springing ahead


Remember I got a box of solid scraps
From my friend vrooman?
Well, 
in the box was this neat strata
So I cut it in half and joined them at the
Yellow side making a runner
Found another green in the box
Divided the width by 4 to get my pieces
They happened to come out to 3.5 evenly
And sewed on borders
Only a small piece left that will
Become 3.5 squares for another playdate


And this is the newest scarf
Half done
I am thinking these will make nice
Pay it forward gifts this Fall winter season
Lots of folks here walk their dogs and what
A nice way to help stay warm
And i clear out the yarn stash
A win win 
My secret project is almost Done 
Once the recipient has it
I will reveal 
Hee hee   so fun
Whats going on in your sewing room?

A solid project


I am having too much fun
Wish I could stay home and play
These little 4 patches look so cute
Surrounded in solids

It would even make a cute baby quilt 
Of course i have no idea yet what i am making lol
Just 2.5 squares surrounded by 2.5 inch strips
Easy and cute and bonus 2.5 squares
Out of the leftovers


Dunkin did a cat scan to test my seams


Then did the roll test for
Softness and durability


Then the stretch test for size...
With that big butt Dunks I think 
I better keep sewing for a bit longer

I have been a bad leader.......
I NEED TO KEEP GOING ON THIS QUILT

the raccoon block is a challenge for me right now
sooooooooo

I think I need to get with Jacky and pick two more blocks
for the month of MAY

anyone making a farmgirl?  I may try and do some
of the 12 inch blocks. saw the cutest quilt
made of 12 inch blocks
not many are needed to make a small lap
or wall
a cute sheep for Easter
a pumpkin for the Fall
the mixer for the kitchen
teakettle
any interest? or should I just finish mine on my own.........



The gift that keeps on giving


See these cuties?
As I was sewing my geese blocks
I used the squatrs JulieRose gave
Me as leaders and enders
And voila  a pile of them
Was born in no time



And as you know I got some cool
Solids from Vrooman recently
Not to mention the mailroom Stash
So I  added solids around them 
And  played with layout
Not like i have any ufos to
Work on hee hee


See this julie

And i made these too
For another quilt

Love my quilty friends
