August Scrappy Star Blocks

August blocks for Scrappy Stars.  These were a lot of fun to make.   Mine look they are not straight, but they are, it is just my poor photography skills and I also would bet that it is not hanging on my design wall straight either. Anyway, if you want to find the pattern hop on over to Terry's Treasures.  It is a great way to use up scraps.   I'm not sure how many of these I will make, but I am invisioning a large quilt which means I am likely to make more than two of these cuties a month.  I guess we will see.

Hope everybody is having a fabulous week.

Scrappy Stars Quilt Along

This is my first post.  I certainly don't know all the "ins and outs" of blogging, but a girl gotta start somewhere.  For years now, I have been following quilting and sewing related blogs and thought it was high time that I start my own.   I hope this will be a great way to meet and interact with other fellow quilters.

I have decided to join Terry's Treasures and join in the Scrappy Stars Quilt Along.  I am going to be using scraps with Kona Snow for the background.  I thought I had a tone-on-tone off white fabric I could use for the background but I cannot find it.   These are some of my scraps. 

I have never organized my scraps. So it is very difficult and time consuming to get started. I really need to be more organized in my sewing room. I have several bags of scraps from years of quilting.  It is nice to pull them out and remember which quilt I had used them in.   I am super excited to finally be using these scraps.  Hopefully, I will get two blocks done this weekend. 

Cheers Everyone and Happy Friday!!
