Time for my Valentine’s Day quilt!  Hopefully it will add some brightness to these gloomy end-of-January days! ❤️❤️❤️ #valentinesquilts #hearts #ribbonbraidquilts  #scrappyquiltsarethebest #i❤️toquilt
My design wall has been empty and lonely since I finished the Foxy Quilt for Christmas. I haven’t had a chance to sew as much the last few weeks, so I put a UFO quilt top on the wall, at least to make it look more interesting. I had bought the antique blocks at a Minnesota Quilt Show several years ago, and added the sashing. Now I’ll decide if it needs another border or two - any opinions? Someone else’s UFO became my long-term UFO! #ufoquilt #wipquilt #antiquequiltblocks #antiquequilts #mnquilters #scrappyquilt #scrappyquiltsarethebest #scrapquilt #redwhitebluequilts #patchworkquilt #quiltsinprogress
Need a new block of the month project to start the new year? A bit of #crazypiecing and a bit of #needleturnapplique to take when you’re on the go! Are you going to #road2ca2019 ? This quilt will be there along with a few more of my quilts in carriagecountryquiltswa booth! Stop by to see them up close and in person! I will be there as well on THURSDAY JANUARY 24th at 2:00 to sign your One Sister book purchases! Hope to see you there! Booths 907, 909, and 911!  #ones1ster #ones1sterdesigns #ones1sterfabrics #henryglassfabrics #piecelikecrazy #notpaperpieced #quilts #quilting #quiltersofinstagram #patchworkquilt #scrappyquilts #scrappy #scrappyquiltsarethebest #quiltingfun #handapplique #applique #appliquequilt #road2ca2019 #roadtocaliforniaquiltshow
One more star piece and some triangles. Then it’s on to the next chapter of this quilt! #hexies are just so much fun!  #quilts #scrappyquiltsarethebest #scrappyquilt #hexiequilt #quilts
And the second of yesterday's two finished tops...this EPP Grandmother's Flower Garden. I had thought I was done a few months ago, then decided it needed some half-flowers to even the edges a bit. I've been working on this during soccer practices, music lessons, road trips, and lots of Netflix over the past 5+ years. I haven't tried to do the math to figure how many hexies there are, but it's an awful lot of tiny stitches!  #grandmothersflowergarden #quiltsofinstagram #scrappyquiltsarethebest #epp #handstitched #sewmystash #futureheirloom #hexied #hexiequilt #quilting
Hank from the Lazy J Goat Farm in Seymour, TX helped me finish the #2018monthlycolorchallenge binding today!  #melvalovesscraps #scrappyquiltsarethebest #scrappyisbest #quiltersthroughthegenerations  #lazyjgoatfarm
Borders are on! I tried every green in my stash that was big enough because I wasn’t ready to cut into my Zuma by @tulapink . But nothing worked....as soon as I put this up on the wall, I knew it was perfect! Everything is better with Tula 😂 Pattern is by @kim_brackett , I just made the borders a little narrower (saving some fabric for moi! 😂) #scrappyquilt #babyquilt #scrappyquiltsarethebest #snowdays #everythingisbetterwithtula #sewyourstash2019 #sewyourstash
I also finished piecing the center of this baby quilt. Now to decide on borders 🤔🤔 #scrappyquiltsarethebest #scrappyquilt #babyquilt #snowdays
I keep seeing so many beautiful #hexiequilt I had a o give it a try.  Thought I’d use up some #sewyourscraps2019 #sewyourscraps #sewyourstash2019 until I figured it out and OMG this is fun!  And I think I have it figured out.  Although I realize my vision is crap these days! 🙄. Eye appointment next month thankfully!  #sewingfun #quiltingismytherapy #quiltingproject #quiltingismybliss #happyquilter #joannefabrics #scrappyquilts #scrappyquiltsarethebest

Halfway through the quilting! (Please excuse my little photo bomber 📷👶) I've started with a diagonal cross hatch, but plan to add a bit more detail inside the grid. I hope my beemates don't mind that I've played a bit of mix and match with some of your beautiful blocks to get a scrappier look. I'm on track for another last minute finish 😂. #spinwheelblock #scrappyquiltsarethebest #anzacbees2018 #thebeehivequilts #lastminutecrafter
My Valentine's Day quilt is done! It finished at approximately 60" x 72" and has lots of fun scraps in it from some of my favorite designers like Cotton and Steel, Zen Chic, Lizzy House, Bonnie and Camille, Basic Gray, ect. I had fun sewing this up! I used a Jennifer Pagenelli print for the binding. Swipe for close ups of binding, some fun fussy cuts, backing and maybe even my lovely quilt holder!  #valentinesquilt  #patchworkheart  #bwpatchworkheart  #lowvolumequilt  #scrappyquiltsarethebest  #scrappyquilts  #quilting #bwfinishedquilts
My #itsawildlifebom quilt is what is under my needle today.  Thanks @moosestashquilts @creatininthesticks @justletmequilt and @sewincrediblycrazy for the fun!  I am looking forward to your 2019 blocks. 😊  #melvalovesscraps #quiltersthroughthegenerations #2018bomfinish #scrappyisbest #scrappyquiltsarethebest

These are the sweet 5 1/2” blocks I received from my 1800’s Quilt Study Group for our churndash exchange. It will be a fun and scrappy quilt!  #reproductionfabrics #reproductionquilt #betsychutchian #scrappyquilt #scrappyquiltsarethebest #churndash #quiltblockexchange #churndashblock #newquilt #quiltingwithfriends #quiltsforallseasons
These are a few things that I remind myself of as I quilt... Do you talk to yourself too? Speak gently to yourself!  #melvalovesscraps #quiltersthroughthegenerations #scrappyquiltsarethebest
I'm joining in on #saturdaynightcraftalong with @myteaandbrie , @barefootcrafter and @charmaboutyou ! I'm going to try and John in more this year. I mean, I spend most Saturday nights crafting!! I'm finishing the backing to my Valentine's Day quilt. I finally pulled out my hoarded yard of Wee Wander fabric. I used several one years cuts from my stash to piece this back. I didn't have a full years of the gingham so I pieced my leftover blocks in to make it longer. I needed a teensy bit more length so I added a few solid strips from my scraps. Altogether a rather scrappy and busy back. I used what I had though, which is what I'm trying to do! I like it! Now, I'm about to baste. Maybe I can begin the quilting tomorrow!  #quiltbacks #piecedbacking  #scrappyquiltsarethebest  #scrappyquilts  #valentinesquilt  #bwpatchworkheart
I am SO close to another #2018bomfinish  This one is the #2018monthlycolorchallenge that was hosted by @patternsbyjen  Tomorrow I can finish the quilting in the setting squares and border and then prepare the binding for a road trip project.  #melvalovesscraps #scrappyquiltsarethebest #quiltersofinstagram #quiltersthroughthegenerations
I don't love the snow like some. I prefer mild weather and warmer temps, but... snow day = sew day... and a No Guilt::Go Quilt day to boot!  You know where you can find me!  #melvalovesscraps #noguiltgoquilt #snowdaysewday #quiltersthroughthegenerations #scrappyquiltsarethebest #scrappyisbest #quiltersofinstagram
This quilt has waited quite awhile for binding, but now that I’m spending so much time icing and elevating my ankle, it was a quick finish.  I can’t wait to show you the full finished quilt- I’m going to try and round up some photography assistants this weekend.😉 . The Liberty fabric was mostly from 3 months of @westwood_acres #givemelibertyclub . The blue is a Bella solid in blue raspberry. . . . . . #irishchainquilt #scrappyirishchain #libertyfabric #libertyoflondonfabric #freemotionquilting #patchworkquilt #scrappyquiltsarethebest
Not much sewing tonight..but I did muster up the courage to cut into my coveted @heatherrossinsta "lightening bug " bundle. I stared at it for a full 15 minutes before I untied the bundle..then in I went with cutter in hand!!!😱 these squares will be going into my @jenkingwell Halo quilt that hasn't received any quilty attention in months.i need 81 blocks, I only have 28🙄. I've got to get over the hoarding mentality and use my beautiful, precious fabrics I've been collecting . That way, I will see them in my finished quilts and feel happy. #heatherrossfabric #jenkingwell #haloquilt #ihaveafabricproblem #fabrictreasures #scrappyquiltsarethebest
I finished my #valentinesquilt top Sunday night right before having the start back to work. Barely had time to photograph it in the daylight this evening! I'm very happy with how it turned out!  #postagestampquilt  #lowvolumequilt  #scrappyquiltsarethebest  #noscrapleftbehind  #quilting  #scrappyquilts #patchworkheart  #bwpatchworkheart
I have just finished putting the binding on this sweet quilt. Kate O from Maroochydore mafe the top and donated it and several others to Stitching Hearts. I have quilted it. All ready to go to our first meeting of 2019 next week.  #stitchingheartsquilters #charityquilt #scrappyquiltsarethebest #fmq #domesticsewingmachine
First finish of the year! This block I s called "Happy tree pillow" by @kviltstina . Mine didnt turn out exactly as the pattern, but I think its stinkin cute! Finishes just over 20". I'm  going to quilt and bind fir a mini. #happytreepillow #kviltstina #scrappyquiltsarethebest #miniquilt #ilovepatchwork #patchwork #barefootquiltz
A New Year, and the beginning of a New Quilt! My 1800’s study group is starting an exchange of 5” churndash blocks, based on a quilt in Betsy Chutchian’s beautiful new book “Quilts for All Seasons.” @betsy_chutchian  We have exchanged quilt blocks for 3 other quilt patterns from Betsy’s book “History Repeated,” and one called “Bushel Basket Quilt,” from Edyta Sitar’s book “Scrappy Firework Quilts.” @laundrybasketquilts It’s hard to believe this is our 5th exchange already! There are 7 of us in the group, meeting once a month, and a really fun way to spend time with lovely friends!!! Scroll for more.  #betsychutchian #betsychutchianfabrics #reproductionfabrics #quiltsforallseasons #newquilt #quiltingwithfriends #blockexchange #patchworkquilt #scrappyquilt #scrappyquiltsarethebest #laundrybasketquilts
Been sick in bed for the last few days, so not much going on here, but tonight I started pulling fabrics for a new quilt I want to make - Sparkle by @bluenickelstudios . This is right up my alley, scrappy and sweet! And as usual, I'm cutting for two, so I'll have one already to go if anyone is interested. You can get this awsome pattern on Scott's Etsy shop. It's the perfect stash buster! #sparklequilt #urbanfolk #bluenickelstudios #urbanfolkquilt #scrappyquiltsarethebest #scrapbusters
My empty spools from 2018... an equivalent of 75 standard spools (300 yds)  I have some smaller, numerous larger ones and one giant spool.  I have scoured my social media posts and blog but cannot find a count from 2017. 😕 In 2016 I had 35.  I upped my game! Woohoo!  Do you save count empty spools?  #melvalovesscraps #quiltersthroughthegenerations #quiltersofinstagram #yearendspoolcount #scrappyquiltsarethebest #2018bomfinish
Made a bunch of 16 patch squares. I think I've decided to skip the random pink blocks but I did select a lot of low volume scraps with pinks in them. The lighting here is terrible but I'm loving how this is turning out!! #patchworkheart  #valentinesquilt  #scrappy  #scrappyquiltsarethebest  #scrappyquilts  #noscrapleftbehind  #quilting  #lowvolumequilt  #bwpatchworkheart
Quilting muse is back for winter. This will not be placement of squares. Love me those scraps. #scrappyquiltsarethebest #victoriafindlaywolfe
All done with the heart block. It measures 21" unfinished. Now off to piece a bunch of low volume four patch units! Should I throw in a random pink square here and there or keep it all white (ish)? #patchworkheart #postagestampquilt  #lowvolumequilt  #scrappy  #scrappyquiltsarethebest  #noscrapleftbehind  #quilting #bwpatchworkheart
Snow day = sew day!  There is no better way to end the year with some marathon quilting as I finish two BOM quilts and a baby quilt.  #melvalovesscraps #snowdaysewday #quiltersthroughthegenerations #quiltsofinstagram #quiltersofinstagram #scrappyquiltsarethebest #scrappyisbest #savethebeesbom #savethebeesquilt #2018bomfinish #2018monthlycolorchallenge
Layout for the patchwork part of my Valentine's quilt! I'm getting excited about where this is going! I didn't have as many of the vintage, pastel prints I was wanting but this works!! #valentinesquilt  #patchworkheart #scrappyquilts  #scrappyquiltsarethebest  #noscrapleftbehind  #lowvolumequilt #bwpatchworkheart
Next scrappy project - a patchwork heart quilt. There are a bazillion scrappy heart tutorials out there but I ended up sketching out my own thing (with crayons on construction paper, no less!) I want a postage stamp quilt but n going to use half square triangles to make my heart with smooth edges instead of pixilated. Fortunately, I have lots of low volume options from being in two different #hhlayercakeswap opportunities (thanks @heartfullyhandmade . )I'm going with light to medium pinks for my heart, inspired by the ladies in the #pinkquiltbee2018 who I have watched make gorgeous pink blocks all year. I'm trying to copy their style, so lots of pastel, floral, etc. Super excited to get started and maybe have a Valentine's Day quilt ready before Valentine's Day! Anyone want to sew along?? I'll share my measurements! Edited to say I'm making my half square trials using @jenib320 's four at a time method in her book  #thehalfsquaretriangle  #valentinesquilt  #scrappyquiltsarethebest  #scrappyquilts  #quilting  #postagestampquilt  #patchworkheart  #noscrapleftbehind #bwpatchworkheart
It’s finished - except for the label and binding! This was inspired by some scrappy 4-inch sawtooth star blocks I saw in March, 2013, on tazziequilts.blogspot.com (@tazziequilts) and also a quilt I saw on quiltville.blogspot.com (@quiltville_bonnie). I loved it, and asked my friends MIckey and Julie if they wanted to do a block exchange. They did, and we exchanged about 200 blocks for the next few years. Because I wanted mine to be a kingsize quilt, I made an additional 120 stars and about 320 hourglass blocks to finish it. It measures 108” X 108”. I’ve always machine quilted my own quilts on my domestic machine, but this one was just too heavy, so I took it to Kars Quilting (kars@karsquilting.com) for longarm quilting, and they did a fantastic job on it. You can swipe to see closeups of the quilting and the back of the quilt. ❤️J 184 #quiltsforjulian #sawtoothstarquilt #kingsizequilt #blockexchange #patchworkquilt #quiltsofinstagram #quiltville #quiltersofinstagram #scrappyquilt #scrappyquiltsarethebest #patchworkquilt #sewingmystash #sewingmyscraps #starquilt
My #savethebeesbom top is together! It will be a baby shower gift and I will be putting the little gal's name on the lower border using bright and bold colors to make it even more fun. 😀  #melvalovesscraps #2018bomfinish #quiltersthroughthegenerations #savethebeesquilt #scrappyisbest #scrappyquiltsarethebest

Finished a Christmas gift tonight. Nothing like a last minute finish!! I wish I could say I was done with my Christmas sewing but I do have a few small things to complete tomorrow. I feel much better having this out of the way. I'm going to try and get good pictures tomorrow!  #quilting  #irishchainquilt  #irishchain  #scrappyquilts  #noscrapleftbehind  #scrappyquiltsarethebest #bwfinishedquilts
Quilt top finished. 1,225 2.25” hexies.  Actually there are 1,226 because one row has 36 hexies and not 35 😂😂🧵🧵. Started this in September 2017 sew I’m pretty happy it didn’t take me 7 years like my last one.  #hexiequilt #scrappyquilt #scrappyquiltsarethebest

After the overwhelming popularity of layout "B", this is what I have on my design wall. I am loving the cornerstones!  Many thanks to my daughter who pointed out that there were too many light colored blocks in the lower right corner.  I remedied that by making a new block in the same colorway, but darker. That was block #13 anyway... 😉  The setting triangles will be in the form of an ombre or gradiated shading from black to white.  #melvalovesscraps #2018monthlycolorchallenge #scrappyisbest #scrappyquiltsarethebest #quiltersthroughthegenerations #quiltsofinstagram
Even though it’s a busy holiday season, I still take time to relax some evenings, and do a little hand quilting.  #slowstitching #handquilting #handquilted #handpieced #slowquilting #quiltinprogress #patchworkquilt #scrappyquiltsarethebest #doitfortheprocess #scrapquilt #clamshellquilt #reproductionquilt

Today's #mycreative2018 question is, Scrappy or Coordinated? Scrappy, yes please! As a child, I enjoyed searching my grandmothers' quilts to find which pieces came from the same fabrics, and I like to think that maybe the recipients of my quilts will do the same.  Besides, I love mixing fabrics and I don't care about designers and their coordinated lines...it's much more fun to roam the fabric store looking for just the right fabric with just the right color and just the right "feel." This block is from my #dawnsearlylightquilt (pattern by @quiltville_bonnie) that is close to becoming a marvelously scrappy flimsy.  #scrappyquiltsarethebest #christmasquilt  #quiltsofinstagram
Scrappy scrappy all day long! #mycreative2018 is mostly scrappy, as usual. - Today's prompt is "scrappy or coordinated?" I love stash busting and seldom purchase pre-coordinated fabrics. How about you? Are you more scrappy or more coordinated? - Thanks again for this fun look back at #mycreative2018 @colorgirlquilts 💖 #scrappy #scrappyquilts #scrappyquiltsarethebest #scrappyquilt

I am STILL quilting this #letsgocamping #botm... ok, so we took off for one last camping trip to Caprock Canyon State Park and bike trails. It was great!  We left CO with 8+ inches of snow on the ground and enjoyed 70+ degree days in TX. We saw one small rattle snake so it wasn't really perfect.  Close, but not perfect.  I hate snakes of all kinds... we didn't pass back over that part of the trail 😮  #melvalovesscraps #scrappyquiltsarethebest #scrappyisbest #quiltersthroughthegenerations #quiltsofinstagram #quiltersofinstagram #freemotionfeathers

My favourite type of rainbow. 🌈 These bright blenders squares are on their way overseas for a quilty wish (along with the bright multicolour squares I cut on the weekend). I always have a great time playing with my scraps. And as a bonus, I can now close the lids on my scraps bins 👊 #sewtherainbow #scrappyquiltsarethebest
When you are unsure of how to quilt the blocks in a sampler quilt and have stalled in every way possible... then your husband as design consultant says do them all the same... you finally give in and do what you have fought against from the beginning.  They will be quilted with what I am calling an embellished  feathered wreath and vines.  But takes forever! It will be worth it... #melvalovesscraps #scrappyquiltsarethebest #scrappyisbest #freemotionfeathers #quiltersthroughthegenerations #quiltersofinstagram

Prompted by a post by Jenny @angelcake.quilting where she showed off her latest finish, I dug out some photos of my version of the same quilt finished in #preinsta days. The design is by @karencunninghamdesigns but I altered it fairly significantly because I wanted a single quilt, not a double. I have called my version "Summer Evening in a Garden Maze". It was quilted locally by Jenny Campbell from Coastal Quilting and she did a simply awesome job of it. Swipe to see some detailed photos.  #slowstitching #handpiecing #applique #scrappyquiltsarethebest  #allfrommystash

I snuggle under it as we watch tv in the evening.  @gogokim @misterdomestic  #melvalovesscraps #scrappyisbest #scrappyquiltsarethebest #quiltersthroughthegenerations #quiltsofinstagram #quiltersofinstagram
@gogokim and @misterdomestic are hosting a party for those #missingmarket  #whereisew is the prompt... I have two custom sewing tables. One is home to my #babylocklyric, the second is home to my #babylockjazz  #melvalovesscraps #quiltersthroughthegenerations #quiltersofinstagram #quiltsofinstagram #scrappyquiltsarethebest
Quilted and bound this one today. Used a loopDloop pattern for the quilting. I really like using chambray shirting in my quilts! Pretty happy with the back too! #improvscrapquilt #modernquilt #scrappyquiltsarethebest #makemodern
