This beauty is what has been occupying my days over the past couple of weeks. My sewing room looks like a scrap bomb exploded in my area! I have to tidy it up soon.
I absolutely LOVE working with all of my Marcus Fabrics scraps as they all play so nicely together. I'm not really paying attention to which scrap goes where.....it's truly a scrappy quilt. I'm just trying not to put the same 1" strip in the same block. My seam ripper has made an appearance a couple of times while I've been working.
The quarter-square triangles have taken me longer to make than I anticipated. To make them truly scrappy, I'm making them two at a time and chain-piecing a ton of them at the same time.
We are spending a very quiet Thanksgiving at the cabin. Mr. Joe has come down with a horrible cold which is aggravating a pre-existing breathing issue. Gee, I hope he will be able to smell the turkey roasting??? We will be feasting on Remington, the turkey our granddaughter raised for FFA. It's nice to get him out of the freezer and onto the table. He was taking up a lot of room.
It's easy to lose sight of gratitude as many of us are facing challenges in our lives and in our world. I'm choosing to focus on gratitude for all of the richness of friends and family in my life. You, my dear readers, are a major part of friends and family.
Gratitude will bring peace to our souls.
