Scrap Happy Saturday

Happy National Quilting Day!

I took a few pink scraps and combined them with black to make what I call Good & Plenty blocks. You know, like the candy. I like the pink and black combination but I actually like gray and pink best. I don’t know how far I’m going to take this but they are fun to make.

For my birthday this year my DS gave me a Connecting Threads gift card. Lucky me, here’s a picture of the loot.

If you like scraps, you’ll love this book. Lots of great ideas and fresh ways to look at your old scraps.

I hope you all get a chance to do some quilting today! Enjoy!

Your pink string blocks are looking good. I like that bit of black. So much fun to get to do some shopping.

Great looking combination blocks. Black and pink looks so good together, as do gray and pink, can't forget about brown and pink. Hope you find inspiration in your new book. Looks like a good one.

I like the addition of the black fabric - it gives a bit of zing to the blocks.
