Mindless Scrap Sewing

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday friends.  This week has been a trying one for our family.  My grandfather was in a horrific car accident last Thursday night and has been in ICU ever since.  We are worried but hopeful for a full recovery, even though it will be an extremely long, hard road ahead.  We took a trip to my hometown over the weekend and since getting back, I have been working on sewing more scraps together.  This kind of sewing occupies my mind but doesn't require a ton of thinking, not to mention zero precision, and that's just perfect right now.

This, my friends is a stack of over 30 (!!!) improv scrap panels, using all of my warm colors.  I have a fantastic plan for these, and I am looking forward to pressing them and getting them all cut up.  I really hope this project turns out as awesome as I see it in my own head.

Y'all shared some awesome stuff at last week's party.  Check out this awesome quilt by Melva Loves Scraps.  I love the quilt AND the scenery!

Sandra at mmm! quilts showed off this sweet finish.  What a lovely color palette!

And check out the yummy quilting texture on this gorgeous quilt by Liz at Savor Every Stitch.  So amazing!

Fantastic!  I can't wait to see what you're working on this week.  Let's get our party on!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)
