I May Have A Scrap Problem... Gypsy Wife Progress, and Some Stashbusting!

Hi, all!

Wow, this week is really flying by!!  And this is my third post in three days, so I'm going to keep it short and sweet this week.  

I finished the next block for Gypsy Wife - this week's block is called Nurses Cross.

And here's a picture of all of the blocks I've made so far...

really love how this is coming along, and can't wait until I can start assembling it!

Next, I've been working with my scraps to create more pillow covers...

...pulling out some UFO/practice pieces to turn into more pillow covers...

...and even dipping into the orphan blocks for inspiration! 

I've still got some quilting to do on this one, but once that's done, it will become another pillow cover.   I'm having a lot of fun pulling pieces out of my stash to use for these - burning through lots of scraps and yardage, too!  

So that's what I've been doing with my scraps this week.  How about you?  Been working on anything interesting?  Link up below to share so we can be inspired!




  1. Using scraps, the finished items are wonderful. Pillow covers, love the one with words, I can see a whole quilt with blocks like that, the same colour all the way through.Just gorgeous.

  2. I'm using some scraps to make a color book.

  3. Sarah, I am loving all those pillow covers you are making. Such beautiful work on all of them.

  4. You are a pillow machine!!! Love that Love pillow.
