I May Have A Scrap Problem... I Got The Blues!

Hi, all!

Scrappiness has taken over my house!!!  I feel so virtuous - I have been digging into my blue scraps for Lilli's annual quilt, and this is what is going on so far...

Now that the light-to-dark layout is set (I think I've switched a couple around since this picture was taken) I need to sew on some corners.  I have a feeling this is going to hit the back burner for a few days, though, because I picked up another commission job this week with a very quick due date.  Pray for no windy days - I'd hate to have to lay this out again!

And here are my Gypsy Wife blocks for this week...

I just love Courthouse Steps blocks - they make such an impact in a quilt!  Next week's step has a LOT of blocks - I may have to split it over two weeks, but I hope not - I can't wait to get started assembling the sections!

And I don't know about you, but I'm really getting excited about Christmas!  I've found a few scrappy projects recently on Instagram that might get your holiday mojo flowing, too...

Wouldn't this be a great way to use up some of those Christmas scraps you've got hanging around?  And maybe the end of that bag of fiberfill, too!

And while I'm not really into the pictured color scheme, I think it would look great with bright Christmas themed fabrics for the ornaments!

And finally, look at these adorable tea towels! Wouldn't they make a great hostess gift, or maybe the perfect thing for a Dirty Santa gift exchange...

I think he's ready to start decorating, don't you?




  1. The blues are beautiful. a wreath, a stylised tree, I need to get motivated for Christmas very soon.

  2. Your scrappy blues are really very nice - and I completely LOVE your Gypsy's Wife colors :)

  3. I am glad you are in the spirit I need to get there. but first I have to clean up my sewing room & get organized. Lots going on in my life at the moment but things will be better after Dec 2.

  4. You should feel virtuous - anyone who does such a fantastic job using their scraps deserves an award! Love how the blues are coming along.
