I can’t believe I just wrote 2017 in a subject line!
Oh, goodness. It is coming up so soon!
And with magazines, it’s a month ahead of where we currently are and do I have some happy surprises for you!
It may only be December, but 2017 is already hitting news stands near you.
Does it drive you nuts? It does me a bit, but this one is packed with all things WONDERFULLY QUILTY!
My own copy of the January/February 2017 issue of Quiltmaker was waiting for me when I returned from Thanksgiving in Key Largo, Florida.
I tucked myself into bed and thumbed through the pages, one by one by one – SO much great stuff inside!
Isn’t this a great cover quilt?
Aurora Borealis by Susie Ledadom!
This one is marked as “EASY” and I think this would be great with any collection, prints or solids or batiks!
Diane Harris has done it again!
This one is called Spinster!
I love to separate even my smallest scraps by color family, and this one just calls to me! It’s also marked EASY…are you ready to get your scrappy on?
These are just a FEW of my favorites! Look:
So many stars and pinwheels!
Crimson and Cream by Lynn Lister.
Also marked as EASY!!
And there is so much more!
Not to mention:
This month’s Addicted to Scraps Column!
This is the antique quilt that inspired my column.
Irene, Sherry and I found this quilt while antiquing in Kentucky and I just KNEW I had to make some of these. Here is another close up:
Can you spot the blocks?
Have fun digging into your scraps while you make these fun blocks with basic units. You’ll find the directions in my Addicted to Scraps column in the Jan/Feb 2017 issue.

My day today.
I’ve made all of the small string blocks that I need, now I am on to the large ones…so far this is NOT making a dent in the neutral strings bin! But I’m sure having fun while I do it!
Have a lovely evening, everyone!
