New Scrap Play!

 
I got to swap scraps with Margaret C and I am so excited with what I got!  This is only a small pile I decided to play with today.  Notice the New York City scrap in the lower left?
 
 
Here it is again.  Don't you just love it!  I decided I had to use it as my inspiration piece for the first block with these scraps.
 
 
Sorry about the poor color.  I was using my husband's camera and don't quite understand the settings.  I hope you get a sense of great color and fun fabrics Margaret sent me.  I pulled all the ones I thought went with the NYC scrap and built this 24" x 24" piece.  I like it so much, I may try and find something in my stash and help this grow into a lap quilt.  I can see some flying geese to represent the fact that I would have to fly a long way to get to NYC and some friendship stars to represent all the great quilty friends I have made through this site.  This might turn into quite the sentimental quilt. 
Thanks, Margaret, for all the fun scraps.  I can't wait to see what the rest of the box creates!

What a fun block you made! I just got my wonderful scrap package this afternoon (thanks so much Lisa!) I am in the "spread it all out and ooohh and ahhh" stage. I will try to move on soon to the "post a photo" stage.

Life is too short to not have fun!! Thanks again Victoria!
