Hello everyone, I've been playing with my scraps this week. And came up with a pile of these.

Nice, colorful 3.5" squares. I'm going to put borders on them, and then set them into a quilt top.

I started out going thru my scraps, pulling all my strips. Some of the strips I had 2 or 3 of. Some I just had 1 strip. Some are long, some are short. I sorted them into piles by their width. From 1 1/4" to 2 1/4".

I paired up my 1 1/4" strips with my 2" strips. Trimming some of the larger ones to those sizes. Put  a 1 1/4" strip on either side of a 2" strip. Some of the strips sets use the same exact fabrics.

And some use the same colorway, but different fabrics.

Then I cut out either one or two 2" strips from the sets, and either two or four 1 1/4" strips from each strip set. How many just depended on how long my strip sets were.

And put them together like so.

I LOVE these colors!!!
And now I have a pile of these.

Aren't they pretty!! :)

When I get the borders on, I'll be back...

Have a great day!

Linking up with the Gals on QuiltStory, thank you H&M!

It's been a year!!

Wow, what a quick years it's been too. I can't believe I've been blogging that long. Thank you my faithful followers, the ones that have been with me all along, and the new ones too. I'm happy you've been enjoying my posts.

I haven't been doing much sewing this past week. It was cloudy, cold, rainy and even a bit snowy, you would think that would get me into the sewing room. But I haven't had a new project, and can't do any quilting right I don't have any batting....although I have been messing with some scraps, developing a project in my mind.

I thought it would be fun to see what my most popular posts have been this past year. So here are the top five post.

My Lone Star tutorial is a HUGE hit! I'm so happy there are so many of you using it. I know there is at least one flikr group out there, that is using it for making swap blocks :) How cool! I hope it helps you Ladies.

Second in line is my Set In Seams tutorial, which goes along with the lone star, so that makes sense ;)


  Third, my Art tote bag, this is a neat bag. Both my teens enjoy theirs a great deal. We all enjoy drawing in this family, and my dd also enjoys writing short stories. So we go thru the paper and pencils.


Fourth, Quilt-as-you-go table runner that I made using a Fandango charm pack.


And the fifth most popular post is the Signature quilt I designed. There is also pictures of my FQ bag I designed, on the same post.

Again, I want to thank all of you for being part of blogging land. What a fun, rewarding place on the internet. I've met lost of great Ladies this past year! Thank you!
