Scrappy Saturday

Some quilty friends came over to help supervise the sewing last night. They brought a few refreshments. It was a fun evening filled with conversation, eating snacks, and a bit of sewing. 



I had already finished up some leader-ender Alamo Star blocks. The top two blocks were leftover from August, and the two red ones were from September. I wonder what colour we will be sewing with in October? 


Last night I worked on sewing my broken dishes blocks for Barb's swap

You have to make 320 HST blocks for the 80 swap blocks, so that's a lot of cutting, squaring up and sewing.
A lot was accomplished by some of us last night. And some of us had fun playing with the snacks. Halloween Cheetos ... who knew there was such a thing!?!
Hop over to SoScrappy to see what the Rainbow Scrap Quilters are up to this week.

  2. I have never seen Halloween Cheetos until now - although Cheetos and white fabrics don't seem to mix well.

  6. As always, I adore those itty bitty stars!
    (And seeing all those broken dishes blocks lately has really been tempting - it's a block that I considered for RSC2016, but bailed on. Now I'm sorry I don't have a binful to play with!)
    Halloween Cheetos, eh? Hmmm...

  7. Hmm... be extra careful if "sewing under the influence"!! We wouldn't want any piecing to go awry or

  9. The Halloween Cheetos are a hoot! I have never seen them before, either! Your star blocks are fun in the different colors! I think the broken dishes swap sounds like a lot of work, but hopefully worth it in the end.

  10. What will they think of next - Cheeto skulls, ick! You have a big job with those swap blocks. Keep up the good work! Alamo stars are new to me, cute. I visited there years ago when our daughter was stationed there as an Air Force nurse during Desert Storm.
