New project for Scrap Squad 2014

My latest scrappy project made for Quiltmaker Magazine’s Scrap Squad is up on the Quilty Pleasures blog!  Be sure to check it out:

I had a lot of fun with all the twists and turns of making my quilt.  9-patch-with-sashing1

I used these colours from photos collected on walks around the neighbourhood.







The original quilt is in the November/December issue of Quiltmaker magazine.  The designer named her quilt Christmas Ribbons.  I call my version Corn Maze.  Can you find the path that runs all the way through it?

Playing with blocks and scraps

Sometimes quilters just gotta play!  The Sew Scrappy Club has been playing with the simple little Puss in the Corner Block.

It is really just a basic 9-patch with different proportions. 

We’ve discovered that the blocks set next to each other can give some interesting results.

And playing a bit more gives another look.

I have been working from the scrap bin.  This project used the LAST BIT of several fabrics that have been around for many years.
