First Scrap Squad 2014 post is up!




Today is the day that the first Scrap Squad post for 2014 appears.  I’m so excited to be part of this group.  You won’t get to see my version of the quilt for some weeks yet, but take a look at what Margaret did with the first assignment!

The Quilty Pleasures blog is here.

Scads of Scotties

scottie block

Recently members of the Sew Scrappy Club have been playing with this block. (Instructions for the block can be found on the Scottie Dog Block page -- the top right of the blog.)

Here are some of the quilts they have made.

Donna used half a dozen doggies on her baby quilt and two more on a charming table runner.

Don’t you love the embroidered Scotties in the cornerstones of Fran’s quilt?

Helga made a mini block and put it on the side of a basket.

Janet’s block was made with fabrics discovered at the thrift shop.

Abandoned quilt -- Mystery solved


The quilter who left the box of fabrics at Eleanor’s door has been found!  Mo didn’t know she was the subject of a search until she saw a write-up about the preemie quilts in the Merritt Morning Market.

Last week she dropped by Granny’s House where the quilts have been displayed, and was delighted to see what had become of the project she started.  She tells us that soon after she had begun the project she found that it was more complicated than she felt she could handle as a new quilter.  She left it at Granny’s House knowing that Eleanor would make sure it was completed.

Thank you, Mo, for helping us solve the mystery.  And thank you for the quilts which join other donations to the NICU at our regional hospital.
