Scrappy Saturday

All the green pumpkin seeds that I cut last weekend were appliqued this week. I had some fun with them on the design wall, which lead to lots of border ideas for this quilt using leftover blocks.
To see the last green scrappy posting for the month, hop over to SoScrappy. I am looking forward to getting out the blue scraps for June's adventures.

As has been my tradition for many years, today I will be attending the annual Mennonite Quilt Auction, which raises money for international relief efforts. Over 200 quilts will be auctioned, and my little group's quilt is #134 in the catalogue. If you are there, come say hi to me... just look for the person in the crowd who is hand stitching!

  1. Hand stitching at a quilt show sounds like a perfect way to spend a day. The greens look just like leaves on a vine.

  5. I'm sure your hand-stitching will generate a lot of interest. Your group's sunshine quilt is very cheerful; I hope it also gets a lot of interest.
