Finally Sewing and NTT

Hey there, y'all!  Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday.  I've finally been getting some sewing done this week!  I like to do a big scrap purge in the the summer where I use up every single scrap in my jars. My last purge was two years ago with my Strata Squared quilt. I'm not sure this quilt will completely empty my scrap jars, but I know it will put a big dent in them.

Scrap quilts also happen to be my go-to when I need a little inspiration, and since I haven't sewn in awhile, diving into my scraps was a perfect way to get my sewjo going again.  It took me a little while to come up with a plan, but now I'm ready to move full-speed ahead.  Here's a little peek at what's happening-

Well, of course it's scrappy improv!  You know that's my favorite way to use up scraps.  I've written two books on it, for goodness sake.  haha!  I'm excited about what these improv panels will become, and you'll just have to wait to find out what it is.

Last week's party was filled with fantastic creativity, like this scrappy beauty by Sally at Crafts, Cavies, and Cooking-

This quilt by Anne-Marie at Stories From the Sewing Room is a stunner!

This cute and colorful quilt is from time4stitchn-

And finally, Nancy at Grace and Peace Quilting shared this lovely quilt-
