Scrappy Things

My mom is coming to visit tomorrow - she comes every year about this time to celebrate her birthday with the family.  So instead of much sewing this week, you know what I've been doing!  Yes - cleaning... although I would much rather be sewing!  I have had the time to work on a couple of small things - blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and my Log Cabin Loonies project.

I finished up my six 16 patch blocks for August in shades of light purple and gray with a few other little colors thrown in.


I was just doing a little math and realized that I now have 48 of these sweet blocks!  It's going to be fun to lay them out again and see how this quilt is looking!

I also wanted to finish up a few more of my 12 inch log cabin blocks because the full moon is coming up! There are 9 of these blocks now.


This month I added 3 new blocks - a turquoise one and a black and white one - 


and an orange one.  Before I made this orange block, I was looking at the other eight, and I just knew it needed an orange one.  I love orange!



While my mom is here, I don't know if I'll make it into my sewing room, so I'm going to need a hand sewing project to work on while we sit and visit.  I'd better go see what I can dig up!

Later this week, I'll be linking up with my favorite places:
ScrapHappy Saturday at SoScrappy
Log Cabin Loonies at JulieK Quilts.

See you there!

  6. I've come here for a little light purple and grey inspiration and well, thank you, I've got some! I haven't been feeling the colour combo this month; did purple and green earlier this year, and grey doesn't feel 'rainbow' to me. Have a great visit with your mom; I can totally relate to the 'cleaning vs sewing' sentiments!

  9. Just remember that thread bits on carpet or chairs, beds, etc so not count as dirt!
