A Beautiful Mix

Scraptastic Tuesday

I'm a bit late, but the linky is still open for Scraptastic Tuesday and you really need to go look at all the wonderful scrap projects.  I am playing with a beautiful mix of left over FQs, layer cakes, scrap yardage, and odd Charms.


I have been so busy with paperwork, meetings, and schedules that I have fallen behind on Kaaren's Mystery @ The Painted Quilt.  A mix of Barbara Brackman, Howard Marcus, Nancy Rink, Judie Rothermel, Pam Buda, Paula Barnes - and I am sure there are a couple more and I want to get them all documented. 


I'm using the same mix for Barbara's Stars in a Time Warp - so I have to work a bit between the two projects to make sure I get the best use out of all of these lovely fabrics.


There are a lot of borders - after border, after border, after border - and you know how I just LOVE borders.  So I have to push myself on these.  The next border is geese and I have my bricks cut for them, but I am waiting on a fabric order ( I was hoping it would be here yesterday per the tracking) as my scraps just aren't enough for a large backing section. 

I'll just have to catch up on my stars while I wait. Well, I have to put on a binding for my SIL first - then I can play some more with this beautiful mix.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  3. That is a lot of borders but it will look great when complete! Borders are usually where I run into a pause in my quilting projects but once the borders are on they don't wait long to get quilted :)

  6. Just look at all those lovely borders. Considering you don't like borders, you've really stepped out of your comfort zone with this one Sharon. It looks great.

  8. Such pretty houses all in a row. Borders can be a bear, but they are usually worth it (as I tell myself whenever I get to that stage with one of my quilts).
