I May Have A Scrap Problem... How About A "Little" Inspiration?


Hi, all!

It's been a busy week here, topped off with lots of ice and a little snow - definitely enough to keep us all at home here in middle Tennessee.  We don't deal well with ice on the roads!  But as that means more time for sewing, I haven't been complaining.  Unfortunately, though, I've been working on commission jobs and haven't had any time to do any scrap sewing. But I have found a "little bit" of inspiration on Instagram to share...


4,340 1.5" finished squares in this scrappy beauty!  Can you imagine?


Or how about a wonderful vintage hexie quilt? 


And here's another postage stamp quilt, this one with 1" finished squares - 3,411 of them!


This was just a progress shot by @aquilterstable, but it sure got me thinking.  How about you?


And finally, Tracy has another beautiful scrappy creation.  She lives in my neck of the woods, and I think we really need to spend some quality time sewing together!  She makes the most beautiful scrap quilts....

So did I succeed in giving you a "little" inspiration?  They say good things come in small packages, and if you are anything like me, you've got lots of small scraps just itching to be made into a quilt!

So get sewing!

Hugs!

Sarah

  2. This week I have been working with strings, and I've made a dent in the pile of them. Hopefully I'll be able to share my top on Friday. A postage stamp quilt may be my next scrappy quilt, I have a bin of 2 ½" scrappy squares. The rainbow quilt is so pretty!

  3. OMG, 4000+ tiny squares sound like pillow stuffing to me!! I'm working on my mystery quilt along today, and hoping we don't get ice tomorrow.

  9. Snow, and freezing ice! We are here with like 5-6", with more arriving today. Looking for Saturday for it to all clear up/ Stay inside, safe and warm. Working on my H2H quilt. Being inside is a great time to get some sewing done, isn't it?

  10. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
