Scrap Quilt Along, Week Two

This past week has been a whirlwind of activity with little time to work on the scrap quilt- a-long.  I’ve been sewing pairs to pairs.  Here is what’s on the design wall.

I love the serendipity of the the hummingbird head just peaking out over the seam.

Believe – yes, I believe that I will get this quilt done!

I found quite a few florals, fruit and vegetable prints in my stash.  I saw something in one of Kaffe Fassett’s books years ago using a mixture of flowers and fruits/vegetables, I think it was called garden rows.  Well, that quilt never happened so these pieces are now rows in a scrap quilt.

I love the pink swallows, also part of the Utopia Collection by Francis Newcombe.  You can also see some Kaffe Fassett florals and Riley Blake chevrons and stripes.

And the roll away bin with 1.5″, 2.5″ and 3.5″ strips and squares waiting to be paired up.

I hope you had a creative week.

Keep it simple and colorful!

    You are making me want to sew pieces of fabric together! I cleared out a lot of my leftovers last week too–cut them into one inch strips and sold them for knitting into rugs!
