A Colorful Scrappy Saturday

*Stay tuned tomorrow for my Fabric Magnets tutorial and a follower-only giveaway!*

I finished up my use of red scraps today by sewing my February project together... and now, I've done March, too! I think I'm going to do more with green scraps in the next couple of weeks - I have a lot! - but finishing the green Dresden plate was my ultimate goal (even though they don't really take long!).

Green as Kermit the frog... I love green. I know part of it is a little rumply, but I'll be able to fix it... I think.

The red - many scraps generously donated by Kathy at Cottage Garden Quilter! Red really grew on me with this project. Now I have a little more red in my stash and scraps... maybe I'll use it more often in my projects...

Here's a picture of all the finished plates so far. For my wedding quilt, I think I'm going to make three more: orange, purple, and yellow. The wheels are in motion in my mind... maybe I'll pick fabrics/scraps this week. I can't wait to see how this turns out!!

I have a lot today!

Over at Sew Jewely, Jewel is giving away 4 different bundles of fabric.

Kaelin at The Plaid Scottie is giving away a beautiful bundle of Monaluna fabircs and a copy of Denyse Schmidt Quilts.

Jackie at Jackie's Art Quilts is celebrating her one year blogaversary with a FQ bundle giveaway.

Over at 1Choice4Quilting, they made a mistake, and are giving away 4 1-yard cuts or 8 half-yard cuts of Sunkissed!

For her March giveaway, Jeanette at Inch Worm Fabrics is giving away 5 beautiful batik FQs.

Over at Creating from the Heart, Melissa is giving away a HUGE bundle of things, including a Brother CP-7500 Computerized Sewing Machine. Wow!

And finally, last but not least, Nichol at A Desert Quilter is giving away some lovely thread and red, black, and white FQs.

Enjoy your Saturday night!
