PROGRESS!!!

 Scraps-R-US!  I was cleaning and organizing, and found a whole quilt made of these blocks...rather, I found the cut out pieces, and some blocks already sewn.  If you squint your eyes, you can see the light and dark scraps better.
 This quilt...well, I put a lime green border on it!  It came out in the pictures as somewhat garish, but really, it is a pretty green that just screams springtime!!
 This one is pretty scrappy...hundreds of different fabrics,  mostly cut from tiny pieces, not strips.  I love that!
I found some more 6 inch blocks...it was a start on the Splendid Sampler, but then I went with red, white and blues, instead...so I have more blocks to add to my stack of 6 inch blocks...to someday put in a quilt.



I worked on EIGHT quilt tops to get ready for quilting...that mean pressing and cutting threads (I think this is mind numbing), and matching backs to tops.  Binding is at the ready...and that was the biggest portion of this day. PROGRESS!!  Fully half of these will be patient quilts, so that makes me happy, happy!!





Hope each of you is having a wonderful day!!

Your scrappy blocks and quilts seem to keep magically appearing. I spend the other day doing something similar, matching quilt tops to backings and cutting and fusing batting pieces. That's a full days job!

Wow--love the scrappy creations you turn out, Julie!!
The green is a very happy border.
Mind-numbing is a good description of some of those necessary, but not necessarily pleasant tasks. :)

They are fantastic! The green just makes every color pop on that quilt. So... could you send them to me so I can take a better look at them once they are quilted? :-)

Perfect timing I was looking for inspiration as to what to do with my half square triangle blocks, thanks!

Yumm! I love that fresh green leaves border. Yes, it does call Spring to mind. So refreshing. Love it. The HSTs quilt looks awesome. Will you make more to make a bigger quilt or is this a wall hanging one? Enjoy! ;^)
