First up, this month's Fat Quarter Fun class at Ruth's Stitchery.
The pattern is "Currents" by Sharon Winter, published by Brookshier Design Studio. If your LQS doesn't have this pattern, you can call Ruth's Stitchery, or get it from Quilters Warehouse. Sharon says this pattern was "inspired by 16th century tilework in a Portuguese palace. It was fun to see how it worked up in various colors, I used purple! Because I have a ton of purple scraps I've collected for my next Scrap Squad quilt.
I only made one block, because I want to save this project for next month's quilt retreat.
Another scrappy project is the "Vintage Schnibbles" at Pink Pincushion and A Quilting Life. I didn't have a charm pack that really grabbed me for this little quilt, so I went to my enormous collection of 5" square scraps and decided to use 30s repros for "Hat Trick."
I have the squares cut for the 9-patches. I think I'll use muslin for the setting squares and setting triangles.
Linking up to Kim's Big Quilting Adventure for Scrap Basket Sunday!
We're expecting a major snowstorm tomorrow night here in Colorado, so I should get a lot of sewing done in the next few days!
