ON MY WAY HOME

I just had to post this photo to show you how good the other shots really are, all things considered! I am packed and on my way to spend the night at my Dad's before leaving in the morning to go home. My daughter says she will drive me through Rogers, MN so we can stop at Quilted Treasures. Yay! It is a great shop. I have been on involuntary quilt shop deprivation for three weeks. Luckily for me I can get a fix by going to all of your blogs to see what you are doing. What a concept!
I was able to spend time yesterday going through my daughter's scraps and did some cutting for Judy's project. Lots of four inch squares and two inch strips. This will be fun. I decided to make it in blues and browns and some red, since she had a nice selection of those. I think it will be very nice. It is fun drawing from someone else's scrap pile. I LOVE scraps. I think that is why fat quarters are so appealing to me--just because they are small!
I have another project started at home that has the same size Shoo fly blocks in it. I started it last spring while at my son's house. I haven't had a chance to work on it since then. The colors will be smilar to the Pioneer Trail colors. At least while here I did get all my stars and geese finished for the Buggy Barn quilt, so I can set that aside until I get a chance to sew the blocks together. I am making progress! More later from Virginia!

I love that you have a daughter who has scraps, and that she will share them with you! And then you are sewing something different at your son's house. How cool is that! You have projects waiting everywhere you go. =)

Shopping in someone else's scraps may just be the best shopping on all. Have a fun and safe trip home.

Very nice!! It looks like you did the zigzags as strippie set?

I bet that your daughter will be happy to see some of the those scraps get moved along.

Have a safe trip home and we'll catch you later.

love that shoo fly quilt in that setting. And how lucky for you to have a daughter that sews enough to have scraps! How fun for the both of you! I'm hoping my girls will eventually find the time to sew again.

It's so nice that you and your daughter share a common interest - and that she shares her scraps. :)
