Calling All Scrappers!

Today is the first monthly linky party for Scraptastic Tuesday
You can visit with either Leanne at She Can Quilt or Nicky at Mrs. Sew and Sow to join in - or just to look at all the fun, scrappy projects in progress!!!

I'm really excited about this new linky party, because as you all know, I'm a very SCRAPPY girl!!!  I absolutely LOVE stitching together small scraps of fabrics to make something beautiful and useful. There are so many scrappy projects in progress in my studio, you'd be snoozing before I could share them all!   However, you can check out some of my recent scrappy projects HERE and HERE :)

One of my favorites is this recent finish - Soul Searching!

I plan to get back on track making these fun Happy Dance blocks too...

Of course, a post about scrappiness would not be complete without sharing my latest completed Patchwork of the Crosses block - these are my latest obsession!!!!  You can see some of my earlier blocks HERE and HERE....

I just returned from a really wonderful visit with some fun ladies who were retreating at Quilting on the Mountain, and they allowed me to share a talk and trunk show of my scrappy quilts and processes with them.  I have to say though, these were some very scrappy ladies, and any one of them could have given that presentation!  Just look below at the amazing scrappy quilt one young girl shared - she made this quilt when she was only 9 years old!!!!  I wrote down her name, but of course I can't find it now.  But she and her sister (who is currently 9) were sewing up a storm - and not simple quilts either!  Let me tell you - I was impressed!!!

Although the Scraptastic Tuesday linkup party is the second Tuesday of each month, Leanne and Nicky share every Tuesday about all things "scrappy" so be sure to join them each week, and maybe even do a ST post of your own.  Next week I'll be away at retreat, and Internet is always iffy when traveling!  But for my next ST post, I'll try to share a little about how I store and use scraps.

Please be sure to come back Thursday for a little "Meet and Greet" in preparation for the new FREE BOM, Sew Sweet Simplicity, designed by Jacquelynne Steves!  The first block for this fun BOM will be released on Jacquelynne's blog on October 27!!!
