Oh Scrap! : A Day with Scraps

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of teaching my Geese Migration quilt to the Emerald Valley Quilters.
Oh what fun we had!



I love to see a table full of scraps!



In no time at all, beautiful blocks were getting finished.  It was so rewarding to see other quilters applying some of my tricks and tips for using scraps to their blocks.  I wanted to steal them all!



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


I is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  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!
Quilting is more fun than Housework

They certainly would make a beautiful quilt all together! It's such a wonderful block!

The first picture is such a temptation. I just want to touch and play in all those beautiful fabrics, lol. The students did an excellent job on their blocks. They must have had a very good teacher. ;^)

Kate said...

Very pretty blocks! One of the most fun thing about classes is seeing what everyone else puts together.

Libby in TN said...

Looks like you had a very successful class. I might steal those blocks first, though.

What fun! Those are beautiful blocks!

How funny! I have a couple of long strips of 'geese' to make when I get my sewing machine back. Love the colors.

Cathy said...

Looks like fun, indeed! Wish I could have been there. Since I wasn't I might have to try that block and pretend I was there.
