Playing with scraps X 2

Do you remember way back when we did a scrap swap?  You do, good!  I was very lucky to receive a big bundle of scraps from Glen.  I've been slowly playing with them off and on, and in particularly a little scrap of black and greens already started caught my eye... which lead to a fusion of blacks and greens ...


I love how they all play so nicely together, and I knew exactly what I could use some of this for, after all, I can keep on sewing and adding to the bits I haven't used ...



Don't they look great as journal covers! 

I'm not done with these green scraps yet Glen! 

And I've been doing my homework too!  These are my blocks for the Spots, checks and stripes challenge ...


V, I had a great time playing outside my normal colour range here, so very pretty,  I was having so much fun, I'll be sending you a little extra to play with, if you're up for a challenge!  I still have more of these scraps, and again, I'm not done with them yet! 

And without even  knowing, I've been sewing all the scraps of my current project together as I've gone along, so more on that one soon!

You are doing beautiful things with my scraplets !

A few of your scrap pieces went into the Warm/Cold quilt to shore up the wonky sides.....and tame those Bias Monsters!
