Scrappy Sunday - Finally the Red!


Thanks to the very generous Kathy from Cottage Garden Quilter, I have a red Dresden in the works for my wedding quilt!!!

Kathy emailed me after I mentioned offhand that I lacked reds in my stash - it's not one of my favorite colors, and I've only been quilting for almost a year, so my stash is not complete (well, is it ever?!). Anyway, I was absolutely floored when she offered to send me some of her red scraps. Look what I received in the mail today! SO many scraps, and chocolates, too! Thank you so much, Kathy!


So, I got right to work, and here's my Dresden plate, all ready to sew. I can't wait.


I also have the green one in the works but I'm going to save that finishing for March... because I feel like green might be the next color... :)

Meanwhile, check out the "special" red Dresden I'm putting in - one for each plate - I love this traveling gnome. I knew buying a half yard of this Michael Miller fabric would come in handy at some point, and this is my first time using it...



...and I thought I would have less scraps after all this! But, I'm not complaining. I love to make scrappy things. There's always that little piece you put away that you'll never think you'll use, and then, VOILA, you find a use for it one day - it's like magic :)


Giveaways:
Over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Sarah is giving away two patterns to two lucky winners - from Rebecca of Chasing Cottons. I read both of these blogs regularly - they are wonderful! - and the patterns are simply gorgeous.

And 1 Choice 4 Quilting is celebrating their grand opening with a huuuuuuge Sunkissed giveaway! Seriously, go check it out, and their inventory - everything is 20% off!

That's it for now :) But I'm very excited for more sewing tomorrow.
