Scrappy blues and creams

About three years ago, I started this project. I thought some hand piecing would be great to do in the evenings while sitting in front of the TV with the MOML.
Winding Our Way  Australian Homespun #72
Then I discovered stitchery-hexagons-hand appliqué - and suddenly my nights were filled with those and this project languished at the bottom of the pile.
UNTIL SCRAP BASKET SUNDAY!!!
I've been looking for a good travelling companion and I decided that this project would be a good one.
I discovered it had that "I've been sitting in the cupboard too long " smell, so I had a marathon session airing and pressing.
Ironed and stuck on the wall; I can see the starting of the circle effect....
Sorting, pressing, drawing, cutting, AIRING.
Scrap play!
The start of a nice little pile for the next few blocks.
 Today I am linking up with Kim (Kim's Big Quilting Adventure) and other scrappy friends on Scrapbasket Sunday. Click here to visit more bloggers playing with their scraps.
Happy Sewing!!

  1. I'm loving the blocks and the circular look you are getting. How fun. I also saw that you did Pam Buda's orphan project. I got one block done. Your table-topper is very pretty. I'm your newest follower.

  4. How fun! Those blocks are looking great. I've always wanted to try a curved piecing project but haven't so far. I'll look forward to watching yours grow and come together.

  7. Have always liked this pattern Raewyn and you are making a great job of it. At least you have given it an airing now and every little bit you do will eventually get it done. You go girl.xx

  8. I think this is a beautiful project. After being away from it so long maybe it will feel fresh and new--even if it doesn't smell fresh and new. : )
