Got Scraps?!?!?!?!

My "MOJO" is back and it's back with a vengeance :-)

When my "mojo " disappeared a designer said she might be able to help me find it - would I be interested in working on a sample or two for her. Absolutely! On Thursday I worked with "Snippets" on a sample and now I'm just waiting on border fabrics. I have to admit that I sewed and sewed and I didn't stop until I had the quilt top assembled. I was having so much fun! WooHoo!!!!

I've also worked on a project that I'll reveal later this week - a little teaser with Simple Abundance. I hope you'll be excited. :-)

Using the 100+ two inch strips that I cut during my cutting frenzy; these sweet little piles are lined up waiting to become scrappy four patches.

Scrappy 4 patches + fabulous Jo Morton red = "Moose Munch" by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co (Carrie Nelson). You won't find this pattern on Miss Rosie's web site; presently it's only available as a download from All People Quilt as a class download. I have it on very good authority (Carrie told me - teehee) that the pattern will be available in "Miss Rosie's Spice of Life" by Leisure Arts due to be released in April '10. Carrie's new book "Schnibbles Times Two" from That Patchwork Place (aka Martingale) is also due to be released in April '10 (you can preorder at Amazon)

I've been very, very bad and have not responded to your comments :-( I promise you'll hear from me very soon - I've been sewing!!! :-)

Your visits are important to me - thank you! I hope you'll visit again and often.

In Friendship!

Great fabrics which totally look like you too. Glad you are having fun again.

Sandi said...

I've been missing my "MOJO" lately. So much family stuff to take care of that I feel drained at the end of the day. Reading your posts made me feel better and know that I am not the only one who occasionally is lacking a little "MOJO". Will be interested to see what your projects turn out to be. What a lovely bunch of fabrics and projects you have! Gee, that sounds like something the big bad wolf might say if he was lusting after Grandma's quilting basket. Hee hee!

Darlene B said...

I am SO glad you're back!! I can't wait to see all you're working on.

Quilter Kathy said...

If you are too busy quilting to be on the computer, I am DELIGHTED to hear it! Enjoy your sewing! So happy to hear your mojo is back and that quilt with the red Jo Morton is fabulous!

Michelle said...

I am so glad you have your mojo back. I love seeing all of your work. I love the red as a background fabric. It makes such a striking quilt.

Lizzie said...

So glad to hear that you are BACK! I have missed you. both the quilts I made with your pattern are at the quilter now. I can't wait to show them to you. I love that pattern. Any more thoughts to selling the pattern. It is a good one!

Eileen said...

oooo.. I love the Snippets line.
And your scrappy four patch is looking good!

Micki said...

So glad your "MoJo" is back! If the scrappy "Moose Munch" is just a sampling of what's to come, then we are in for some fun future goodies on your blog! I am really loving the scrappy moosee!!!
