Happy New Year!!!

I know I haven't posted in awhile. The end of the year was a flurry of sewing projects for gifts and exchanges. Now I need to get back to scrapbooking and.....back into quilting! I am so inspired with the goodies I received for Christmas: a set of sewing feet for my machine (now I can free motion quilt), several new patterns, and a new quilt kit.

One area I have really been exploring are scrappy quilts. I really love the freedom of just using your scraps. We have a beautiful quilt that my husband's great grandmother made hanging in our dining room. I love to look at all of the different colors and patterns she put together.

So, imagine my delight when I stumbled across this new to me blog  Pleasant Home and the amazing month of activities and giveaways she is hosting during Sew Scraps Along 2012.  I love the inspiration I have found already--and it is only the first day!  Just check out the first tutorial for a picnic quilt-- LOVE!!!

I can't wait to see what the rest of the month brings!
