Hi friends! I am working on another fun scrap quilt. I love using such fabrics.. plaids, shirtings and civil war fabrics are wonderful when used together. Do we ever have enough scraps? I went over to Norma's house and went through her scrap bin.. why is it someone elses scraps look so better than our own??? I think when you are working on scrap projects we should all share our scraps it adds interesting fabrics to our quilt and stretches our creative possibilities.

I love using a little "cheddar" in my scrap quilts.
I found this plaid in Norma's scrap bin and wanted it in this quilt. I think it looks fun.

Each block is relatively easy to make. Flying geese using our method are a cinch... which is good because this quilt will be loaded with them.

Have a good day friends! It looks like a pretty day here.. the sun is shining and it isn't raining!! Woo Hoo!!!!!!!

Needlecase Pattern in the Works!

I have been working on this needle case for quite awhile. I kind of lost my excitement on it but then Norma gently pushed me along to get it finished. I am so glad I just have the label to do and I totally love it! It is a gift for my friend Louise. She has chickens in her yard and she calls them her "yard birds". I love visiting her and feeding those cute yard birds and the egss are wonderful.

Here is the inside. It has lots of pocket space for all the essentials..

Thanks for stopping by our blog! Have a great day!
