Woops where did ScraptasticTuesday Go!?

Scraptastic Tuesday

I really don't know where the time is going but I do suspect it is something to do with those shorter days.  I should have been reporting on Scraptastic Tuesday on .....well ThursTuesday!  Sorry for the delay..

Anyway I have been working on some scrappy projects this week and was trying to finish them.  Still a bit to do so here is an interim report.

My scrappy tops for the fabulous Siblings Together charity have been sitting around for a while as I have been deciding how to back them. 

 As the top is all scrappy I decided to push the boat out and buy backing yardage.  I found a bolt of Amy Butler Imperial Paisley on ebay and snapped it up.  

It is one of the factors which unites these three quilts. Another is that the majority of them were provided by some lovely Ayrshire ladies who attend classes with my bee buddy Sheila @ Bluepatch Quilter.  And one more is the block to make all three quilts although they are arranged in different layouts.

You can just catch a glimpse of my backing fabric in the photo below, bottom right corner..

This one is still in progress...

I have quilted each one in a different way - well quilting 'girls just wanna have fun ' don't they!?

Our cat was assisting with the quilting - she is clever that way!   She makes a great quilt weight!

It was quite effective in stopping my quilting marathon today!

Though I am late in posting about Scraptastic Tuesday this week please remember it is our link up day next Tuesday 9th December.  You will have a week to link up and there will be some lovely prizes!  

Now I would normally tell you to check out what Leanne has been scrapping up but I think she is a bit behind too - wonder which day will turn out to be her Scraptastic Tuesday?  

 Now get scrapping in time for next Tuesday!


  1. I love these three variations, what a great way to use up scrap strips.

  2. A bolt of Amy Butler, how luck is that. I love these blocks, and I am back in business, so will post my scrappy post soon I hope.

  3. Pretty quilts! I will try to have my 'scrap' together for next tuesday ; )

  4. The strip steps blocks come together lovely! And your quilting is perfect too! Jxo

  5. Relax it is Advent and everyone gets crazy making and buying stuff! These quilts are gorgeous and it is so nice to finish a quilt that is made helping each other!

  6. yep....quilt weights...... you just can't find those at any old quilt shop!!!
    too sweet

  7. I am SO in love with these!!! Great job!

  8. I hope the quilt weight doesn't scratch when disturbed!
