What's up on Monday

>> Monday, March 19, 2012

I really can't believe that after finally being happy with this basket block arrangement. . .

that I sewed the rows together *WRONG* and ended up with this

 and I think I even like it better!

What do you think?

I took some time on Saturday night and again Sunday to visit blog hop party blogs and get caught up {mostly} in my Google Reader.  So much fun!  I have been forgetting to have fun with quilting - so relieved I remembered and embraced it again.

In the process of all this relaxing and enjoying the flow, I ended up finally finding a happy home for some scrap half square triangles

*S*blocks! Made from leftover 4.5 unfinished half square triangles from this basket quilt. {circa 2009?}  The blocks were inspired by *Z* blocks I found in this blog post by Kathy of Material Obsession. I'm in awe of the medallion quilt too! I'm really excited to play with some more scrap hsts I found to see what letters I can make - maybe more *S*s!

Creative juices are flowing here again - just in time to go back to work {for a couple days}

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

I like the baskets better this way too.

I love the 'S' blocks! I think you should make a whole quilt of scrappy blocks for yourself...you could call it "Selebrating Sarah"!

I live he "wrong" baskets and your scrappy S blocks. You are on a creative roll.
