Well, this week did not go AT ALL like I thought it would! I had great plans to work on my Gypsy Wife blocks, but a short-deadline project came up that threw that out the window. So I'm embracing the change, and sharing some other things this week!
First of all, I went to a trunk show with the fabulous Jen Kingwell last Thursday night and oh my gosh is that girl a great scrap quilter! I've really been enjoying my experiences with Long Time Gone, Gypsy Wife, and My Small World, but I got to see some of her other quilts up close and personal and left inspired!! And she even signed my Long Time Gone quilt!!
And over the weekend, I finished this scrappy quilt top (at least, the piecing part - there's still some appliqué work to do!) That made quite a dent in the blue bin!! This will be part of my eldest granddaughter's annual quilt this year.
And how's this for a bit of scrappy sewing? Of course, I had LOTS of help with this one - it's a ministry project with a very tight deadline, so it's going to absorb all of my time today as I finish it up.
So that's what I've been working on this week, at least on the scrappy front. I've seen some fun inspiration on Instagram this week, though, and thought I might share a few with you! First of all some quilt deliciousness...
Is there anything more beautiful than a simple
scrappy patchwork quilt?
And as soon as I saw these churn dash blocks, I thought, "Wow, those would look awesome scrappy!"
Check out this beauty! I bet it would make one heck of a dent in the scrap bins....
And if you're anything like me, all those bonus triangles are starting to pile up - but here's a great idea for using them up! Quite a creative way to use different sizes...
This quilt just makes my heart sing! Simple hourglass blocks, but done scrappy, it just glows with color!!
And then - - - have you ever seen a picture and just been instantly captivated and inspired?
I saw this jacket in a catalog and instantly envisioned it pieced, using my solid colored scraps and possibly some of the linen I bought earlier this year. Ooh, or maybe some of those Kaffe Fassett shot cotton fat quarters I've been hoarding for a while.... I don't know if I'll get to it before the end of the year, but I definitely want to give it a go!
Ok, are you inspired now? What wonderful scrappy things have you been working on lately?
