Bust Yo Scraps!

In an effort to keep all of my QAL balls in the air - - I've been working on the Bust Yo Scraps quilt.  (See the button in my sidebar).  There are a lot of scraps to cut up and I'm determined to cut everything before I start to sew.  The quilt consists of 28 snowball blocks and 28 scrappy squares blocks. 

I've got everything ready to go for the snowball blocks!  And I'm using turquoise for the background.

For the Scrappy Squares Blocks - I need 133 more 2.5 inch squares, 112 of the 4.5 x 2.5 rectangles and 28 of the 4.5 x 4.5 squares.  It will be my first time making flying geese.  Oh boy!

Here's the pattern:

Here's the block construction instructions!  Won't you join us?  Many are just getting started.

Look at THIS one by life on the selvage edge!   She is way ahead of the rest of us. I just love it!

Don't worry my starlet friends, I'll be cutting fabric for startlet #3 soon!  I'm loving our Block Party. 

I think I'm in other QALs too, but I can't remember!  LOL 
Well, there is the Chasing Chevrons quilt back to make!  ;)
And I'm hoping to start swooning at some point. 

I've also been thinking of enlarging Duke's bed (not that the couch potato uses it all that much!)

And it was a good mail day for my H.S. Senior (the stand up bass player)! 
An acceptance letter to Whitworth and his class ring arrived. 
Willamette, in Salem, OR is his current favorite. 



  1. Love the scrap quilt pattern - I'll pin it for future reference! And the class ring isn't in the slightest bit what I'd expected but then I'm not really sure what they are so I don't know what I was expecting!

  2. Kind of like "riding in the boot" was a new one for me my British friend! :-)
