Lately I have been watching blogland's fascination for scrappy quilts. Scrappy quilts make sense to me. I want to make quilts with exciting new fabric ranges. Lots of them! And then I have scraps which I need to use to use up. So scrappy quilts just make sense!

So today I made crazy scrappy patchwork. Pink squares. With a little red thrown in. It was so much fun. I cut the paper out for this project well before we moved, but it took me this long to get to it! I just wanted to do a little fun sewing today. It was so much fun I managed to burn and ruin the dinner I spent all day on. Oh well. Some days are like that. Patchwork forever, dinner ...... from some fast food joint.

Love those blocks. Too bad about the food.

Cooking accidents are bound to happen when you're working on a masterpiece.

I love scrap quilts. It's like getting a whole quilt for free. I always feel so virtuous.

Food is highly overrated especially when you are creating such lovely blocks.

I have been looking at scrap quilts for a while too.....need to use up some of my stash....I like the Granny Squares quilt that is flying around on blogs at the moment.....too bad about the dinner....that's why they have take-away shops...good to see you supporting the local businesses. Keeping the economy going. I might have to re-think my cooking strategy from next week....will have the kids living at home for a few weeks....what will I order??
