when life gives you...

This saying has been on my sewing room
wall for many years...
but today the saying below comes to mind!
When life gives you scraps....stitch quilts.

So I have been stitching
from this book I bought while in WA.

I love all the quilts in this book by Blackbird Designs...

but this is the one I started making...called Dance with Me!

So I've been busy cutting up my red collection.

Like many quilters...I really shouldn't be starting a new
quilt...I need to finish all the others.
But what the heck I was feeling inspired by this one!
