Scrap It

I've been missing due to some travel and some family issues.  I plan to catch up on blogs and hops tonight.  I miss a regular routine.  I have three weeks 'at home', but there are home things to take care of.  A little late for the temperature report, but this was last weeks (wed-tues) rosette.  We had a week of a slip back into cooler weather.

57 - 61 - 71 - 67 - 71 - 72 -74

One More Rosette To Go!

I put together the "Step Down" quilt.  I know, large blocks and a large quilt - what have I been thinking?  I may just piece all my oranges for the backing as I have to clear that tote more than this top did.

I'm in guilting mode right now as I can get to the machine.  Three minis done, two small wallhangings, and two large wallhangings have bit the dust so far.  Now I am moving into the big stuff.

And in my travels (lectures at various groups/guilds), my reputation precedes me as I have been greeted each time with various size bags of scraps that I have this huge pile to sort thru.  I'm afraid once I start looking and touching, I'll want to start playing.  FOCUS has to be on the quilting!  So I have to scrap the scraps for a little while.

Today is the Finale

You know you are a quilter when the only scraps under your table are fabric.

I love the "reputation precedes me" and the perfect photo of scraps! So glad to see you got to the quilting and are going strong. The scraps will always be there for play.

I love your step down quilt
I am like you. The big blocks are actually hard to work on lol. I switch it up with some 5 inch mini granny blocks hee hee

I hope these guilds are not paying you for your lectures in scraps. It's hard to believe the temperature rosettes are coming to an end. It will be interesting to see the finished quilt.
