I guess that should read "happy dance" but I am nearly finished my scrappy projects. Woo Hoo ! These quilts have been a lot of piecing, but worth the effort.  The best thing is, I have put loads of scraps to good use.

It started with this,

.......and progressed to this

which gave me these,

a little more of this,

And I got these!

then it was some planning and colouring, and now

they are all at the "some assembly required" stage. Can't wait to show you all the quilts when they are together.

Please tell me it looks like there is less

Happy dance : )

Wednesday already. This little quilt is still a work in progress.  Just a quick post today to say I am linking up again with "freshly pieced".

I have six ladies in my beginner class this week, and they are doing great!
Hope your day includes some sewing--------and save the scraps : )

Don't you just love scraps?  Some of the best quilts I've seen, have been scrappy ones.
Today I thought I would show you another scrappy project I have on the go. These are giant hexagons made out of strips leftover from jellyrolls or borders etc.

I'm not sure how big I will go, but these are fun to make, so I'm not done yet : )  Then I have to decide on placement, and a border of sorts. Decisions, decisions.

Happy Sunday

This month is all about the scraps.  Recently I won some scraps from Megan of "Crooked Seams". They showed up in the mail yesterday. Thanks Megan!  They are lovely.

 I've already cut into them, and incorporated them into a scrappy project I'm working on.

Connector corners that have been cut off from previous projects work perfect for this little quilt too. I am looking forward to putting it together.

Next week I am teaching a beginner quilting class.  It's always fun to teach ladies quilting and see their excitement when their quilts all come together.  I will post some pictures if they will let me : )

Hope your day includes some stitching.

First off I want to say thank-you to everyone who took the time to comment. I hope you entered lots of give-aways.  I had fun looking around blogland, that's for sure.

The winner of this give-away is :

#5   Richard.  I will be e-mailing you shortly.

On a stitchy note, I finished my little hexie, and Carli finished all her blocks.

After that, we went out for a little shopping to look for a grad dress.  Oh the CHOICES!  We did find one, and I also found an outfit for the other girlie in my life.

Why do they put things like this right in the window ? !
Have a great week-end everyone.

My daughter is off school for two weeks because of spring break.  She decided she loved this particular fabric at Katja's, so we bought enough for her to make a quilt.  She has all but two of the blocks pieced.

We plan on sewing together today.  I am hoping to do some hand piecing to finish my hexagon for this week. That will be 14 done.

I am linking up with W.i.P. Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced.

We had our Moda club meeting last Saturday. Once again, it was an inspiring day.  I found some time to get all the pictures cropped and uploaded to this post. We had everything from huge quilts, to single blocks.
It's always encouraging when you ladies bring something that was featured the month before.  Thank-you!

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the parade of quilts.

First up are Katja's hexagons. She's fussy cutting each one.

This is the mystery quilt that I designed for the club this year.  Mine is still a pile of blocks. Some people are way ahead of me!

 This is how Jacqui decided to set her Mystery quilt

All I can say is, Wow.
