Well ladies, I guess I better add my name to this list before I forget.  I would like a 12.5 x 12.5" scrappy string block.  Recently, I have really gotten in the scrappy string block mood.  I love…Continue

Lee would like crazy blocks.  12.5 x 12.5"  Red, Whites, and Blues, of course.  I know that Lee likes live theater, so I was thinking maybe blocks that represented a different Broadway play.  Even…Continue

Melanie has decided to join the log cabin group, so by now everyone should have the instructions for this on, as it has been the most popular block for our group this year.  She would like the red…Continue

Oh, and to put another charm on it all.  I did put up the star quilt on the design so it looks like I am doing something in there and I only need two blocks more.  Not sure who has not mailed to me, but no hurries, won't get to it till April anyway.  If all have mailed, then I can make me a couple blocks to finish it out.  Looks great.  Yeah I know, a picture would help, but you can't see it all behind my piles of stuff from office. LOL

Ginny does great crumb blocks.  I can't quite go there with those.  I do agree, some of my scraps are a good size.  Then those leftovers from quilts.  Geez, those are in there as well.  I have one complete tub (50 gallong tub) full of nothing but strips.  I am working on a project that I started I think 28 years ago that uses up strips.  Now to finish it.  It is a star quilt that I fell in love with.  It is at least half done.  I am cutting up a pineapple quilt with the scraps.  It is one of those that is on my bucket list.  Sure it would look pretty in two colors, but with all these scraps, will look extra special.  Some of my scraps are going into a scrap feathered star quilt as well.  These are all on the back burner again though till we finish upstairs carpeting and painting.  Dreading doing our bathroom though.  Hubby is wanting to totally renovate and I just don't have it in me or the budget.  Hopefully a little paint, new shower door, and mirrors will hold him over.

You are too funny.  I packed, and moved, 3 boxes of scraps.  Don’t tell hubby.  Some of them were good sized.  My intent is to make squares of all sizes and then put them into a scrap quilt.  I tried doing crumbs but didn’t like outcome.  LOL

I received a beautiful block from Trudyann today. Thank you so much!

Or old patterns and magazines! LOL

It will be a challenge for sure.  We do not count scraps as garbage you know.

Thank you Trudyann for the beautiful block!!!!  It is going to become a beautiful quilt. 

Home renovation half done.  Husband cleaned up the office.  He took out five, and I do mean five, bags of papers that were from his managerial position with his company.  He had stuff from 2012 still.  Wow, and he said it was all me. LOL  The sad part is, just wait till I have to clean up and go thru my sewing stuff.  Now there will be only one bag I think.

Wilma, sorry, yes the snail block probably was suppose to go to Ginny. Some of my sewing projects got mixed up. Thank you if you can forward.

Trudyann I received your beautiful block yesterday. Thank you.

If I forgot anyone, please let me know.

Comment by Kris Howell on March 1, 2022 at 9:03pm

Trudyann - please hang on to my block, and feel free to put off making it!  We will be leaving here very soon.  When we get to Ohio I'll post that address and you can mail it whenever it is convenient.

I know all about remodels and things not being the right size.  Hope you are able to locate the doors you need SOON!!!  Hang in there - it will get done eventually.
