Scrap Happiness

Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict is hosting two fun projects.  The first one is her annual Hands 2 Help charity challenge.  Every year many quilts are made and given to wonderful charities.  You can even win prizes just for participating.  It is not to late to join so I hope you will consider joining.  The other project Sarah is hosting is I May Have A Scrap Problem.  I know I have lots of scraps and every year I participate in H2H charity challenge.  This year I am combine the two projects.  I found a scrap pattern called Scrap Happiness Squared by Linda Lehn.
                            This is my finished H2H quilt for Happy Chemo. 
This scrappy quilt used 108 - 4.5" squares and 540 - 2.5" squares but I still have lots of scraps.

I thought you would like an update on my 1.5" squares project.
I have used some of the 16 patch blocks in this quilt top.   It does feel good that these little squares have become a pretty quilt.  I still have many 16 patch blocks. I keep looking for another pattern to use them.

There are a few less scraps in my sewing room.

Browns, Purples, and More

As February was coming to an end I was able to made a few more brown blocks in February.   I need a few more house blocks to have a finished quilt.  I hope to have this project completed this year.
Angela at soscrappy has  announced purple for the March rainbow scrap color.  As you know I am sewing my 1.5" squares into 16 patch blocks.  This project is getting closer to being completed into 16 patch blocks.  I only have 12 more patch blocks to sew.  Woohoo!  

I made a baby quilt.  I used fleece for the backing.  I sewed the top and backing right sides together and then turned them inside out.  It is a quick way to have a completed quilt.  I am making another one  using the same pattern and it will be one of my purples for March.

I also participated in Aunt Reem's Place  sew along Big Leap.  I had a small pink jelly roll that I used to make a baby quilt.  It was a fun sew along.
I plan to use fleece on the back of this quilt.

I hope you will take a moment and read Piece N Quilt blog about The Battle Against Breast Cancer and what she is doing to help her mom.  Natalia is creating a one block pattern and all the proceeds goes to her mother.  I hope you will take a moment and think of her mom.
