When I first started reading quilty blogs last fall I was continually amazed at the generosity of quilters. After only four short months of blogging myself I have begun experiencing it first-hand. Nicole of Sister's Choice Quilts is one of my favorite blogs to read daily. Besides making the most beautiful quilts, she also has one of the cutest dogs I have ever seen. Even if you were not into quilting her blog is a must read just to keep up with Ozzie's antics. Back in June she was blogging about a project she took apart in order to get the design to work. When she showed the pile of scraps she said she was going to trash I quickly left a comment telling her to just ship them my way. She did!! They arrived Wednesday and what a haul it was. The picture just shows a portion of them. I am taking part in a postage stamp quilt squares swap and knew these would be great for that. I have already cut a 1 1/2" square of each of the fabrics for my quilt. There were over 50 different fabrics in that gallon sized zip-loc bag of scraps. Thanks, Nicole!!
I have been working on these squares for my Orange Crush mystery quilt. After all the warning Bonnie gave in the instructions about making sure the red/black squares were turned just so, I still got one of them turned wrong. So this morning the seam ripper and I spent some one-on-one time together and FINALLY all 30 of these blocks are done. I am off to begin the cutting on the orange and blue fabrics for step 5. Hopefully, I will get those blocks sewn up this weekend and can start getting the quilt top sewn together.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Quilting!!
