Cracker Scraps

Here is the newest block that I have been working on. I’m naming it Cracker Scraps as it a variation on a quilt commonly known as Crackers or something like that…I’m using scraps and it all kind of sounds like Cracker Jacks. Yep. That’s how my brain works. Aren’t you all lucky to know that.

A start on a rainbow!

I really feel like I should save this post for a couple of days from now on Saint Patrick’s Day because I’m about to inundate you all with a lot of green. LOL. But sometimes it is hard for me to move on to the next project until I blog about the previous one. So

Let’s put it into context

So being on a fabric diet is hard… we all know. I know that not everyone is participating and that is TOTALLY fine. Ultimately I think we all just want to be wise purchasers. For some, that means buying as much as we can of our favorite line because we’ll use it forever. For others,
