Pink Scrap Quilt Blocks

Early in the month, we took off to warm southern Arizona and spent ten days there. It was so lovely and sunny and in the low seventies - mid eighties (F). Glorious!  I did take some hand stitching along, and managed to finish up one crazy quilt block (picture in next post).

On the sewing front, I have been working steadily on my grandson`s quilt and will have some WIP pictures next Wednesday. But today, for Scrappy Saturday at So Scrappy, where I am participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I am showing my eight scrappy and wonky log cabin blocks.  Pink is the color of the month for February, and I am pairing my colors with black and white.

This is actually 8 blocks (8.5” each).  They will sew up into two 16x16” blocks.  Now I have two blue and two pink and will begin with a new color next week!  :-)

Thanks for dropping by!  I am linking up to ScrapHappy Saturday.

Crazy Quilt Quarterly

It’s here! The new (inaugural) issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly published by Pam Kellogg of Kitty & Me Designs.  You may recall that this publication was previously published by Pat Winter (as Crazy Quilt Gatherings).  

I was lucky to get an advance issue, and I can tell you it is full of lovely eye candy.  And in addition to the lovely pictures, there is a lot of “meat” for you too: tutorials, news, etc. I am so excited to be part of the team as Creative Consultant, and can’t wait for you to see some of the things that are in store for the next several issues!

CQQ is available as a download or in print.  Just follow the link to Magcloud.  Crazy Quilters, you will really LOVE it!
