There is a new team roaring and ready to go at Quiltmaker Magazine --
A special branch of quilters ready and willing to dig into their scraps behind the scenes and join me with blocks from my Addicted to Scraps column!
I’m very excited about this team thing that we have going on.
Let me tell you in Diane’s words how this came to be:
Bonnie takes ho-hum and sometimes even ugly fabrics and somehow sprinkles them with fairy dust, and they become showstoppers. It’s a beautiful thing.
Did she really just admit that I send in blocks with ugly fabrics!? HA! I do! And I dare this wonderful magazine to PUBLISH photos with those ugly fabrics front and center showing you what I truly believe:
Not long ago we were brainstorming for new ideas, and we realized that we could do more with the Addicted to Scraps block designs. When we asked for new Scrap Squad applications, we had many more than we could use in the six coveted Scrap Squad spots.
That’s when an idea was born: Could we form a whole new team of readers who would take Bonnie’s Addicted to Scraps block designs and make scrappy quilts from them?
Why yes! We could! And we did!I’m pleased to present you with this new team called QM Scrap Addicts. They are bursting with excitement about this new project. They’re starting to sew already, and soon we’ll have quilts to share with you. The inspiration around here is going to ROCK!

Head over to Quilty Pleasures and leave a comment there and read more about our fun ahead! The drawing is open until midnight on Feb 8th!
Back on the home front at Quiltville: A one hour facial and a 90 minute deep tissue to work out issues with my adductors in my legs has left me a bit wobbly in a very good way! I may get as far as sewing on a binding tonight, but more likely I’m itching to curl up with a good book after a long hot tub soak and call it day.
I’ll catch you in the morning!
