Sucked into the Scrap Jar Stars vortex on Design Wall Monday

Resistance was futile! I couldn't stop myself from starting a Scrap Jar Stars quilt. Really I was just sucked into the vortex, I'm very light on my feet dontcha know? LOL


I am loving these blocks. Those fall colors make me happy happy happy and of course that butterscotch Moda Grunge background fabric makes me hungry.... for butterscotch pudding. Oh was a lovely childhood memory - oh wow, back to the present.

This is one of the five blocks I have sewn together. Only 20 more to go!


I have all the fall fabric pieces cut out and I'll cut the background as I progress. I like doing scrap quilts this way, where I put my blocks up on the wall and decide block by block and row by row how I want it to look. I go back and forth between sewing the HST units and square units together, to trimming a bunch up and then sewing a block or two. Even though it might be quicker to do things in a more assembly line fashion, I
like the mix of different tasks. I find it keeps me from getting bored.

And I did get my Kaffe Fasset polka dot 36 patch blocks all sewn together. However, by the time I finished last night it was too late to go outside and take a picture and I couldn't get far enough away from it to get a good shot inside. So I will leave you with a little peek.... this is Big Dude inspecting it.


He says it passes! yippee! I'll take a full picture of it outside later and post it.

Have a great week - happy stitching!

  12. I really like your scrap jar quilt-maybe that would be a good one for me to do.

    My brother used to work for a food processing company and he hated it when they were canning butterscotch pudding-he said it took lots of showers to get the smell off him. I don't think they put the pudding in cans but that's how he phrased it.
