Grass is Greener

Grass is getting Greener everyday. And so are the scraps on my cutting table. Angela at SoScrappy, and leader of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2015, has posted instructions for a 6.5" Sawtooth Star within a 12.5" Sawtooth Star...and I love it! And it gave me a chance to make a tiny 3.5" string star centre, though I was sorely tempted to make a tiny tiny Sawtooth Star. I am sure someone out there has taken on the challenge.

I was delighted this past week to receive an email from Angela at SoScrappy advising me that I had won the April's Purple Hand Dyed fabrics, donated by the very generous Vicki Welsh. I am on pins and needles waiting for that package to arrive. I am feeling so blessed.

To add to the greenness of my surrounding there are also two green 16 patch-in-a-Sawtooth-Stars for the alternate quilt, ready and waiting.

We (the Edmonton and District Quilter's Guild Endowment Committee) have had two generous studio clean-out donations to deal with this month. Happiness is helping someone else downsize their studios as they move onto smaller homes and really focus their energies into doing and making the exact types of quilting they enjoy. I really should take a clue from this and clean out my own studio to have just those supplies for the kinds of quilting I now like to do...large patchwork bed quilts.

There has been great opportunities to watch my granddaughter enjoy her dance competitions.  To see her blossom with skill and confidence. Can a grandmother's heart hold that much love?


I linking up at SoScrappy to share the many shades of green.
Love and hugs


  1. LOVE your Sampler Block! You've got a great variety of GREEN scraps. I just might have made a teeny tiny center star... if I was making Angela's Sampler! :o))

    1. Thank you. I make a tiny tiny one...just because I can!

  2. Beautiful Sampler blocks. Congratulations on the win! Cute little dancer. They grow so fast.

  3. Lovely blocks this month. Great progress.
