Oh Scrap! : Strangely Quiet

There has not been a lot of sewing going on at my house lately.  My Bernina has been strangely quiet.  However, I have been busy longarm quilting for others, sewing bindings on some of my own quilts (that I hope to share soon) and working out in my gardens.  My two design walls are currently bare.  Gasp!




But I did paper piece a scrappy heart for my Splendid Sampler.  I had planned on completing a number of blocks but this one was pretty time consuming.  Hopefully by the end of the long weekend I will have a few more to share.

 But the weather has been so beautiful it is hard to work inside!


************************************


Now it is time to share your scrap projects, here are the details for linking up:
  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do!

Ooh, I love that block! I'm still running behind but now I feel like doing a bit today. We are in the middle of a heat wave so maybe some time at the sewing machine with the A/C is in order.

Valerie Reynolds said...

Your heart block is so pretty in the Kaffe fabrics! I haven't joined in the Splendid Sampler, but I did print that block out, so I could make one. I love a scrappy heart block!

I cannot believe your walls are bare. Knowing you it won't last long! It is that time of the year where we need to fix what winter has done...weeds, planting, mowing!

Lovely heart block. The colors blend so well together that you can hardly tell it is as scrappy as it is.

I've been trying to get out in the garden in between the rains. Veggies are doing well but the flower gardens and strawberries are full, full, full of weeds.

I love how your block came out.

Your heart block is so beautifully colored! I love it Cyndy!

Love those Kaffe Fassett fabrics Cynthia...makes a gorgeous heart. Sometimes the garden has to win. Perhaps all that lovely spring air gives us a new look on our stitching and a spring in our machines..lol.

Cute heart block!

Glad I found your blog! Since I am a not so technical person, it took me hours to have your link on my blog :) It will be nice to follow you. I love scraps!!! Gun at rutigt

Your scrappy heart turned out beautifully. Hope you got in some stitching time over the long weekend.

That is one great scrappy heart. If I didn't dislike paper piecing so much I would make one.

Jeanne said...

That's a great heart block! I have saved the patterns for future use - just in case. :-)

Beth @ Cooking Up Quilts said...

Paper piecing is growing on me. This heart is adorable! I agree, it's very difficult to work inside when there's so much to do outdoors. Our machines will be there for us when we are ready to come back to them! :)

Sometimes the universe conspires to keep us from the studio! I haven't sewn in almost a week. But that is one cute block.
