Scrap basket challenge quilt number 4 begins...

The last few days I've been a bit under the weather with a cold
and life has been getting to me!! haha as it does.
So today I was determined to sew something.

I brought this piece of fabric in Australia.
Its by Prints Charming and quite a heavy fabric.

I'm going to cut six inch squares for the centres from these scraps.

And strips from the rest. I'm not going to cut them all the same
just have them random as a good scrap quilt should be.

I just sewed one block after I put dinner in the oven
and before I took Reuben to his art class.

It's going to be full of bright happy colours.

I can't wait to sew it all together.


  1. I love the prints charming fabric! Beautiful.
    And your quilt looks like it is going to be lovely and bright and happy!

  2. I can't wait to see it done! It looks like it will be exactly the sort of quilt I like - all sorts!
