In Progress

I have been doing small things but I see that I'm making some progress on them all.  I'm delighted to be getting some of these to a finishing point.
Here is another attempt at a finish.  This is an oldie from a event night at the quilt shop.  I didn't pick out this material and needed a table runner to trade at Happy Scrappers Christmas party.  It will soon be a finish.  Also, working on Slow stitching Sunday, although I seldom get the picture up at the site.

A group of friends and I went on a shopping excursion and went by a yarn shop to find these.  It's a top this by Lion brand and I modified the pattern some to make it smaller for our new granddaughter that is arriving in November. I can't wait to see this on her.

This block is called Scrappy Trip by Bonnie Hunter.  I tried the pattern out and used 2.5 in. squares.  I learned  the values are too close and need more contrast, especially between he middle rows.  Since I have quite a stash of 2.5 strips, many more to come.


Happy Scrappers challenge to finish one of our projects to competition  This was a 25 block with red through the center.  I chose the Barn raising center.  Remaining things to do is make back and binding and stitching.I think it's neat how the red outlines the blocks in this setting.

Great projects! I made a Scrappy Trip. Just throw this block in with the rest. It will be fine with all that other scrappy goodness. Hope you post a photo of the grandbaby in that hat. So cute.

Yes I will use it. This could be a fun project. I have wanted to try it for a while.
