Off and Running

Seems impossible that it's already nearing the end of January. Where does the time go? Anyway, cold weather makes for excellent sewing time.

The first Scrap Therapy pattern for 2011 is ready to sew. Have you started yours, yet? It's a great sit-and-sew project for a snowy weekend. Use all your scrap sizes from your ScrapTherapy bins, and just go at it! Ask for the pattern and classes at your local quilt shop.

As long as I'm on the ScrapTherapy subject, thought I'd share a couple of projects made by students who have attended my classes. Here's Cecelia and her bright and playful version of Flower Ballet. Doncha just love it?

And camera-shy Liz is hiding behind her version of Lightning Strikes Twice. Instead of making her scrappy zig-zag panels with one set of light and dark scrap colors, Liz took control of the situation and reigned in scraps in three color-combinations.

I'm already moving on to designing the next few projects. I'm having a great time working with Creative Grids strip rulers and my scrap fabrics. So far, I've been having a blast with the Kaleidoscope Double Strip ruler. Can't wait to show you the results!

Stay warm!
