Thursday Mashup

Today is just a mash-up of things that happened in the last few days...


I had to test out the panoramic feature of my new iphone at quilt guild this week. Not bad for the first one, altho it's a little hard to tell it's panoramic. We had just finished making charity quilts from the guild's stash - you can see a couple samples in the photo. We also revealed our secret sisters. Once again I received some lovely gifts and I'll try to post them another day. I would like to again thank anyone who sent a postcard to my SS. She thought it was a lot of fun and told me I must have lots of friends and I do! Thank you all!

Auntie Lauren, if you're out there - thank you for the new catnip toys!!!

Last night and this morning I wanted a mindless project to work on...Scrappy Trip was just the ticket. I finished up 3 more blocks so I now have 9 done. Can't remember how many I am planning on but I'll be happy when it's done. It's not my fav pattern to sew strips together to cut them apart to sew them back together. It is going to be a great quilt tho!


I finished the pineapple star for my Salt&Pepper project. Wait until you see the bicycle fabric I have!


I also finished 6 more triangles for this Star Blossom table topper...just 6 more to go and I can complete the top. I'm thinking in the next week or so with some holiday sitting-on-my-butt time I can get this top done :^)


After the last bazaar on Saturday I'll need to start working on 2 class samples. One is my design, for which I already have the fabric, and the other I still need to design to teach HST for a quilting 102 class.

I hope y'all have been working on fun projects!

To me, Scrappy Trips isn't so mindless--I don't know how many times I have unpicked in the wrong places!!
Beautiful block with the pineapple. So striking!
You always have so many irons in the fire--makes me feel better about my projects. : )

LOL - I didn't see the sense in the Scrappy Trip method either - passed my blocks and strips on to the other Sarah and group. I just love the pineapples.

The fussy cutting on that pineapple hexie is wonderful! So love your hexie projects. I just started a scrappy Trip myself. Yours is coming along very nicely. Thanks for linking to Hexie Friday!
