SCRAPPY QUILTING.....

I've been working on 2 projects this week.  It's kind of in the slow progress right now.  Putting strips on them .  One I'm making stripes around them.  It's the Frog Quilt.

I'm using my scraps of greens to make the stripes around the frogs and lily pads.  This started out as a wall hanging, but I liked it so much, I'm now making a quilt.  

The other project I'm working on is the Tile Quilt.  Started putting the stripes between the blocks.  I asked for suggestions on a color scheme last week, and I really like the color I'm using for the stripes.  It makes the blocks stand out better.

So that's what I've been doing with scraps this week.  Hop over to Oh! Scraps to see what everyone is working on.

PINK SATURDAY.....

 Is anyone doing the Rainbow Challenge?  You can find out more about this over a So Scrappy....I'm sure a lot of folks are.  I'm doing this one too.  The month of January color is Pink...Last years challenge was way too much for me.  So I'm doing one block a month.  I might get this one done on time and finished.  This is my pink basket.  

Just waiting for February to roll around so I can do the next basket.  

What I'll be doing today....Cutting stripes for my Tile Blocks...want to get this done, so I can make some more Tile blocks.  I really hat having to do away with all those tiny scraps you can't use anywhere.  Hope you all have a great scrappy....

WHY I LIKE THURSDAY.....

 The main thing is....the SUN is shining today.  It's been a gray gloomy week here.  So seeing the sun is AWESOME!!

I was over at LA Paylor's place and she's got some awesome quilts to show.  Hop over and check them out...oh, did I mention she is the host for I Like Thursdays.  That's another reason to like Thursdays.

I like that I'm making progress on my Frogs Quilt.  I did a red frog last night...he still needs some embroidery done on his face.

I got some yarn for Christmas.

So I started an Afghan, the pattern is from the February issue of Crochet World.

In the same magazine, there is a pattern for a scrappy afghan.  I have lots of  left over yarns from previous projects, so I started a Scrappy Afghan.

I've also gotten all my UFO's figured out...made a list of the quilts I want to finish this year....but may run into 2022.  We'll see how that goes.  All of these quilts are either a filmsy, needs more blocks, or close to being finished.  All I have to do is get busy and FINISH them!  Which is one of the things I hate about quilting, putting them together.  You can read all about it in my PHD tab at the top of my blog, and pictures of the quilt blocks

TO-DO TUESDAY.....

 I missed a couple To-do Tuesday's, so I'm starting new with this list.  I've got 3 quilts that need to be sandwiched, tied and bound.  I keep adding them to my list, but can't seem to get into the mood to do them...so I'm going to do them one at a time.  Hoping this helps!!  Have you heard of National Day?  You can find all the info about this holiday at Wikipedia...I saw a quilt made of the National Days.  I want to make one.  My quilt will be made for the Year of the child.  I've got the first block done,  there are lots of items to choose days from...I choose Winnie the Pooh Day,  January 18th.  for my January block.  So every month I'll have a new block to make and at the end of the year I'll have a new quilt.

I've got the the last block for the Tile Quilt done...

Now I need to decide what color to make the stripes...this is where you can help out.  These are the 3 fabrics I picked for the stripes....

I could use some help picking out which one to use....any ideas?  Just leave a comment or send me an E-mail...my E-mail is on my side bar.  Just click on my profile info and my E-mail is listed there.  I've also been working on my Frogs....this started out as a wall hanging, but I love how it's looking, so it's going to be a quilt.  

The Sunbonnet Sue is going to get done this week...hoping I can keep Bob off the quilt so I can sandwich it...lol!

So my list for next week is....

January 12th through January 18th

1. Sandwich, tie and bind Sunbonnet Sue. 

2. Cut stripes for Tile blocks.

3.  Work on more of the Frog blocks.

Hop you all.....
