Thanks to everyone who commented and wanted some scraps. I Loved everyone's comments. I think using someone else's scraps is always so exciting!! I am also sending packages out to a couple of other people, who know already.
I have done a little sewing this past week. I did get the first block of the Summer Block of the Week done... It's a little disappointing to me (in all honesty) that they did not include the two little triangle papers for the outside borders. And they also didn't include enough fabric for the strips (I of course have plenty. But not everyone does). And, to top it off, the fabric for the second week's freebie was insufficient (one piece was too small). I honestly think that if you're charging people, the kits should be right. This is probably the last time I will do their summer sew alongs. Anyway, it's an adorable block and I think the quilt will be wonderful!
And I did two more triangle gathering blocks:
And, the best news is that I finished Part 1 of the Mountmellick quilt I've been working on! WOOHOO!!
Here's a close up of one corner:
I was able to find the border stripe fabric from Cyndi at Busy Thimble in Maine (thanks so much, Cyndi! Can't wait to get back to the shop next month!!). Isn't it wonderful? The rest of the fabrics are just from my stash; although the bird in the center was cut from some wonderful fabric that Will in Paris gave me. She has such wonderful taste in fabric. I always cherish her choices.
I love giveaways! I love all the comments! Thank you again for your interest!
