Oh Scrap! : Making Progress

There has not been a whole lot of scrap sewing going on at my house lately.   I had a few Christmas gifts I needed to sew (and will share after the holidays) and I have been busy with all the normal holiday activities.




Late last night, I did go ahead and finish up all the scrappy plus blocks I had been sewing as a leaders and ender project.  Right now I am a little anxious about this project.  I think it is one of those that I am going to have to try and give it some interest through the quilting.  Hopefully next week I will get the blocks sewn together and see how it looks.

How about you?  Have you found time to sew up some scraps?


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


Now it is time to link up and share what scrappy projects you have worked on this week.  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!

I know my Jane isn't a scrappy quilt but I keep at it. When she is finished, I'll have time to make scrappy again. Blessings, Gretchen

Looking forward to seeing your blocks sewn together! I've been quilting a lot trying to finish up some UFOs and WIPs, and frankly I'm getting tired of it - want to start on a new project! ;)

My sewing machine has been stowed due to its room taken over my house guests. I plan to re-organize the week after Christmas and then I can get into the goove again.

I bet these blocks will take on a whole new pattern once they are sewn together! It will be fun to see how it develops!

Looking good! Leader and ender quilts give me trouble. The trouble is I forget to lead and end with them!

When you put those blocks together, they will look totally different than they do now and work together beautifully. I haven't done much sewing, but my orange scrappy quilt is ready to be quilted when I get back to it. Have a wonderful holiday, and thanks for linking to Main Crush Monday! :)

Not much sewing going on here but A LOT of embroidering has my machine smoking! I am just about done with all little gifts and half way through wrapping. Then dessert making. Not too bad this year. Better than doing stuff at 11:00 pm Christmas eve! Happy Holidays.

Just found your page and thought I would share my most recent project on your link up. Love your scrap projects, and added your button to my blog - www.stitchinggrandma.wordpress.com
This year for me has been a variety of scrap projects, and I plan to do a "round-up" of those projects before New Years.

I really like the colors you have chosen for that block. Can't post my scrappy weekend's work till after it is received.
