Moving Into the Cool Scraps and NTT

Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  I had a fantastic time with the Gwinnett Quilters Guild in the Atlanta area last week!  Meeting and visiting with quilters is one of my favorite parts of my job, and the Gwinnett Quilters were so friendly and welcoming!  I still have a little availability in 2023, and I'd love to visit your guild.  Send me an email and we'll talk!

I have also continued plugging away at my scrap jars, and I'm pleased to say that I've finished the warm colors, and have now moved into my cool scraps. The aqua/teal jar is up next, and it's pretty full.  In fact, I think most of my cool color jars are packed a little tighter than the warm jars, so it'll be interesting to see how many improv panels I can get from each one.

It feels like it's been too long since our last party, even though it was only a couple of weeks ago!  But it had lots of amazing projects linked up!  This pretty quilt top is from Rita at Quiltpiecer-

I love this sweet quilt top by Anne-Marie at Stories From the Sewing Room.  I'm a sucker for birds!

This beauty is by Melva Loves Scraps.  What a gorgeous photo!

I love, love, LOVE this scrappy churn dash quilt by Cynthia at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework-

Gretchen's Little Corner shared this stunner-

And finally, Linda at kokaquilts linked up this lovely finish!

I simply couldn't narrow down the highlights any further this week!  Y'all really know how to bring the inspiration!  So without further ado, let's link up!

*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!  :)
