A little of this, a little of that!

I've been working on my scrap squad quilt and can't show it to you  :-(
But I can show you some of the parts!
A LOT of these red squares 
  And a WHOLE BUNCH of these little units ( about 300!)

It's turning out to be a very colorful quilt.
 I'm currently working on the border, actually thinking about the border. I'm back to stalling and getting distracted while I figure out the perfect fabric combo for that border.

So what am I working on while I stall?     Several projects of course!

Some cute little 4" basket blocks from  They are posting a basket every Thursday in March, so 5 baskets total that will become a little wall hanging.

Also 3 more blocks for the Just Takes 2 quilt. I'm still behind here, but making progress!

As well as another block for my Harry Potter Project of Doom quilt. I can tell this quilt is going to be the spot to use up lots of those strange and unique scraps! Here's the first 2 blocks.

And then one great accomplishment I achieved on Saturday, St Patrick's Day. My Hubby was off snowboarding and the kids got 2 new Netflix movies in the mail. Sounded like a sewing day to me!
I got out my Shamrock quilt top (started 2 years ago, made into a quilt top last year), and decided today was the day it was going to get FINISHED!
I got it pinned and quilted, fed the gang lunch, and got back to work cutting binding. A few interruptions came my way but I kept at it and I finished the hand sewing part of the binding that evening shortly before bedtime! What better way to celebrate St Patrick's day, A completed Shamrock Quilt!

The instructions quilt can be found at
If you scroll down you will see Quilt Tutorials and it's the St Patrick's Day quilt.

Now I need to get back to that scrap squad border!
