A challenging scrap project

Last week I joined in Jodi's sew scraps challenge, I have had such good fun going through my stash and finding suitable fabrics to use. Its as scrappy as I can make it. I really struggle with the scrappy look as I like my fabrics to compliment each other, but I think its all coming together nicely.


The 9 patch block in the middle is fun to do and its adds that little bit of interest.








I love doing the stars and deciding which fabric goes where .I try to not repeat the same fabric in the one block. Thats how scrappy works isn't it??







So here we have the first 2 rows of 5. I want to do a scrappy border so I'll have to think about that for awhile. I can't wait to work on it some more.



Our eldest son Daniel is 16 today, sorry I have no photo of him to share, he doesn't like to be on my blog very often. Teenagers like to be difficult.

So Happy Birthday Big boy.
