scrappy goodness

I started 2 new scrappy donation quilts today, yes 2 in one day. Crazy right?  Today was a meeting of sewing friends. We call ourselves The Mod Squad because we all liked modern quilting. But it has evolved more into sewing whatever we want when we meet, doesn't have to modern. So I needed something easy to sew while chatting away.  So strip sewing it was, then of course cutting and re-sewing. I got the interior of this quilt together. I'll show you the whole thing of course when I get the borders on and everything is pressed.  Sorta teasing you aren't I, sorry;-)  I love the pink print!

The second one I worked on today was another Wiggle quilt. I only got the strips sewed and started cutting when it was time to go home. Since strip sets are not all that exciting I will show you that another day too.

And this one I started a few months back when we had blue as our RSC16 color of the month. I made 2 blocks and didn't continue. So now that the end of the year is coming I need to get my rear in gear!!
I have 2 more blue blocks cut and ready to sew.  Then I will do 10 green and put into a quilt about lap size. This a tutorial from Missouri Star called Disappearing churn dash pinwheel. Easy and fun to make. I love so many of their tutorials and hope to do more soon.

  1. Both projects shown look like they will make BEAUTIFUL quilts!!

  2. Your disappearing churn dash pinwheels are a really neat block! I love the happy pink and yellow blocks, too. It sounds like fun to get together and sew with your friends. My quilt group gets together once a month, but we usually just share things we've worked on at home. I'd love it if we actually sewed together!

  3. Love the colors in that top quilt. The disappearing churn dash blocks look great! I love Missouri Star Quilt company. (Although my wallet thinks otherwise! ;) )I can sit and watch their videos for hours, I have learned so much from them. In fact, tomorrow I will be making three pillowcases that Jen did a video on. It looks so easy!

  4. I love the pink print, too! Missouri star does have some great tutorials. They are good for beginning quilters, too. You were very productive with the "Mod Squad"!

  5. I have that pink fabric in the teal color's so pretty! Congrats on starting two new projects. Sewing with the mod squad sounds like lots of fun! :)

  6. I love sewing with friends. But I agree you need an easy project so you can chat and sew. Looking forward to seeing your next Wiggle Time quilt. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  7. Sounds like so much fun! I love that pink print too!

  8. You just amaze me at how much you must not sleep much, Lady!!
    Love the pretty colors in the first photo & I know that churn dash pinwheel is going to be a knock out, with all the open space for you to work your magic quilting into. Yay you!

  9. Very pretty - both project. The blue one pulls me though - I do love blue!
