Sherri, I have been working on a number of rainbow palettes lately, and the one color I always seem to be shy on is in the purple family.

Sherri, that is a really pretty quilt.  Good thing that woman contacted you about that swap!  I have pretty much stopped doing swaps although I enjoyed doing them for many years.  Too many other projects that I want to make while I'm still able to.  The one you made turned out really cute.

Thanks CAT lADY.  I WISH I had enough scraps in each color family to make a more cohesive scrap quilt.  I am working on Blue Ridge Beauty, by Bonnie that is in all blues. And I never used to buy blue fabric. Seems like now I use it in everything.

Sherri, that turned out beautiful. Love the bright colors.

I am afraid I have been creating more scraps than I have been using them.

Where are all you scrappies,  too busy sewing those little pieces of fabric together?  My Carolina Chain is finished.  Binding quilted by Brenda Patterson and binding stitched down.  I love this pattern.  Just need to find a place for it in my home.  I kind of know where it is going... there is only one bed left without a new quilt.

signed up for  a mini scap quilt swap on Scrappy Girls club.  Forgot all about it and since I deleted my FB account did not get any more info on it.  Luckily my scrap buddie contacted me to tell me her mini would be late in coming.  Late..... I had not even given a thought to starting mine.  So while I was working I began to construct it in my mind, and the next day I executed it.  It was of course a very simple pattern.  And I used up lots of the 4 patch neutrals left over from one of Bonnie HUnter/s mystery quilts.   The birdies were inspired by a bag from a new quilt shop I visited about a month ago.  I kind of like this one.  And I;m not much into mini's

Thanks Tanyel.  As a point of reference, the tumbler template I used was 1" x 3".  It is part of a set of charm quilt templates designed by Pepper Cory & sold through EZ Quilting.  I bought mine at JoAnns Fabrics many years ago.  I would think you would be able to find larger ones to make a larger quilt though.  After I had this one finished, Larry said I should have appliqued a star in the center of the blue area.

Donna, Lynne, and Janet - I love your projects. Janet , I think I am going to use your flag as inspiration for a future project. I need to make something fo DH’s office. I may make a larger version of the tumbling blocks flag for that purpose. Thanks for the idea.

I made this scrappy flag wallhanging using a tumbler block.  My daughter saw the top up on my design wall & said she would love to have it so I'm gifting it to her in May when she graduates with her Associates Degree at the age of 38.

Lynne.....your quilts are beautiful.... I can’t imagine doing all that appliqué by hand.

Donna....I’m sure your dad will love and appreciate your pretty quilt.
