A Churn Dash Day

Last week I had a morning set out to make my guild's Block of the Month (a churn dash variation called Paths and Stiles):

That same day I saw Beth's churn dashes in plaid  over at  Love Laugh Quilt, and I couldn't help making a few for her project too:

Ready for the show

 My half log cabin quilt is done, and just needs a hanging sleeve before it goes into our guild show in 2 weeks. I named it "Hawaiian Memories" because it was made from leftovers of all the benefit quilts we made from donated Hawaiian fabric. This is also a benefit quilt, so I will be saying aloha and happy travels to it....

Another one done and ready to go into the show. I made this to test out my basketweave pattern for the February benefit workshop. It was hard to limit myself to only 5 fabrics, but it certainly came together faster than my usual scrappy mess.

Melissa and I laid out scrappy trips blocks at the September benefit workshop.  It was her great idea to turn the blocks so the lines of black squares made a much more interesting pattern. You can see what it looks like all sewn up over at her blog Scrappy Stitches

thinking about stripes and scraps

A reminder to myself:
My goal this year is to COMPLETE projects.

Some projects are currently a collection of fabrics in a box or bag. 
I have been collecting stripes, with the idea of using them in a simple project like this or this from Red Pepper Quilts.

Some projects are just a bag of scraps waiting to be used. 
Check out this tutorial: monochromatic improv log cabin
and then take a look at this scrappy inspiration from Lori:

and from Jane Norberg:

 Lots of ideas....


Added to the Hawaiian scrap quilt:

(thinking of 3.5" white borders to finish this off)

Made blocks for Kevin the Quilter's QOV block drive:
