Scrap Quilts = Mess!

Everything is buzzing! Such a busy time of year - oh, yes, I still have things to do. Meanwhile, I have decided to stick with my x and + blocks, at least one each day, come hell or high water, lol! Julie will be happy to hear this and so will Cathy. I think I'm on the right track, maybe one black cross to each three or four blocks of other colours.

My Madonna Lily in the tele/computer room never ceases to bloom - I love the flowers saying hello to me as I walk into the room. The mess is saying 'please, tidy me!' so lots to do there. Also I'm still having quite a bit of trouble with Blogger, which takes up precious time. Blogs I Follow need to have several removed, anyone who has any hints to pass on, please do!

I do love those scrap blocks!

Shari said...

Your blocks are looking great - and lucky you with your beautiful lily that doesn't make you sneeze!! Hope you have a good week!

Janet said...

I love your blocks Lurline, what a great idea to nibble away at them regularly. Sometimes I think Leprauchauns play with blogger.

Anne said...

No hints from this direction - at least your mess means productivity :0). Really like your blocks.

Kate said...

Lurline they are great - they look good straight and on point too - you clever thing!! Have a wonderful Christmas!!

Julie Fukuda said...

Oh yes, I am happy to see those make an appearance again. I finished one on the way to church and one on the way home so my count is up to 133 now. Mine are only five inches so I will need many more. I will definately need a design wall to get these arranged in the end.

Love your cross blocks Lurline and your Lily looks lovely. Good luck with Blogger - I think it has a mind of its own!!!

Kathie said...

Jackie said...

I am with you on that one... scrap quilts really do lead to a mess! Was working with scraps yesterday and boy, the clean up took a while. Your blocks though are totally worth it!

Margaret said...

The blocks are gorgeous! Just wonderful! Who cares about the mess with such great results! One a day is good!

I love your scrap blocks. You have inspired me and I hope to get some made after the first of the year. Thanks for sharing.

Cille said...

The blocks are amazing.... The colors and fabrics are so well put together.

Terry said...

We have a plant like that, and I never knew what it was called! I'll have to tell Emily (she keeps it in her room).

Victoria @ BUMBLE BEANS said...

But such a lovely scrap mess those scrap quilts make! ;-) looks fabulous!

Nedra said...

I have the X and + blocks on my do list for early in the year. I love that they can be made with scraps, which I am dedicated to using up as many as I can in 2012.

I want to make these blocks so much! I love your taste.
