Scrappy in yellow.....

I got a few minutes here and there in the sewing room this week and got a little yellow fabric played with.

I made my twinkle star block. Don't look too close at those seams.

I also got the dresden plate block picked out, prepped and sewn together while waiting for Mom to get ready to go shopping on Wednesday.

Next was pulling the fabrics and cutting out my 2.5 inch squares for the trip around the world block. I drew my lines on Thursday morning and got this much done in the last two games of bowling that morning. I do love those bumble bees =) Did you know Deborah means Bee in Hebrew?

I also made the decision to frame my midget appliqué blocks with a 1.5 inch yellow strip. I'll keep this one hand pieced I think and add them as I finish them up. I'm thinking a blue strip will go in-between them to tie it all together at the end. I draw the 4.5 inch line around on the back when I prep the hand appliqué on these so I have a guide to attach those frames already =).


A very productive week of scraps! I'm linking up with SoScrappy for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and also Oh Scrap! on Sunday. Head on over and visit the links for some great inspiration.

  18. I didn't know that Hebrew translation. What a cool thing! I like your projects. I know it's a shadow in the photo but if you had a dark brown center for your dresden plate it'd look like a Black-Eyed Susan flower. www.quiltartbymegan.com
