    I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas. I want to share with all of you what I am working on at the moment. Granddaughter asked if I would make an Elmo quilt. So here it is it will go to my greatgrandson His name is Kody one of the blocks has his picture. I am surprising them with added photo blocks to the quilt. Kody cherishes my son when my son is around no one exists to Kody except my son. I am going to sash around the blocks with black. The outer border will have Elmo and Cookie Monster doing football.

    Rhonda, here is a thought. Why don't you do a scrappy quiltalong. Find a neat pattern and we can all do it together. How does that sound?

    Oh, yes, I have orphans of different sizes too to swap. I just meant for a separate swap, if we are making NEW scrappy blocks, maybe we could have a planned pattern for that particular swap only. So, that would be 2 different swaps.

    there is a quilt along just starting here on the board. I just printed my first block. don't know how to point you to it. maybe someone else here knows how. I'm going to work from my stash and do it scrappy. There will be an easy block and a more challenging block - 12" finish.

    I do not have photos yet, but I did finally get to my UFOs that were just scrap blocks I cut up and put in their respective quilts. I want to thank you for setting out a couple of those ideas of using a fabric that is a constant. Sure did tone down the extreme amount of loud colors I was trying to put together and it helped in not having to match seams. I finished two tops yesterday. Then I did my flannel scrap quilt in large 9 patch squares. I had enough flannel scraps to make the whole top and had a backing fabric that has been waiting for the flannel quilt to be done so it is ready to go. May need to get that one quilted up sooner. The kids took my quilts for quilters swap blankets and the hubby is stealing all the covers off the bed and I want to stay warm. (LOL)

    I think a scrappy block swap would be fun. It is my goal this years is to get my scraps down to at least one 55 gallon tub instead of the three I have now. So would be willing to do this one. I do agree that it needs to be a set block so we do have some unity to the scrap quilt, how about the spool block? That way it would pertain to quilting.

    Maybe tweek those blocks to a little larger size such as 6" and then sew four together for a 12" block. That would work for me. I am trying to use my 1.3" squares for a postage stamp quilt.

    I've been following too wondering what swap you'll end up with. I like the spools, but I love the disappearing nine patch. Also I like Bonnie Hunts patterns.

    D9P is a fun block as well. That would go a lot faster for us. My mind is in productive mode of getting thru these scraps with the larger pieces first then working my way down to the small ones with the left overs from the big ones. My thought on the spools is that you can use any of your scrap light fabric for the background and any dark piece for the spool. This way you don't have to have a staple fabric like white or black. Funny you should show that Scrappy rainbow Star. I have one of those pin the process of my UFOs right now. I should dig it out and get it done. They take quite a bit of time in my mind at least. I am doing mine by foundation piecing instead of strips sewn together and then cut the triangle out. Mine is not blocks, it is one large quilt with star points. It is from a magazine and if I am lucky I put the magazine or book with the pattern. I believe I remember which one it is. Which also brings to mind. Another block, but has lots of little pieces, is the Kansas Troubles block. It is a wonderful scrap pattern as well.

    Thanks for all of the links Bbermerald. I especially love the Wonky Pinwheel!

    Thank you everyone for your kind words and prayers concerning my Dad. He was a great Dad. So glad we made the trip to visit him in early November. I do miss him.

    I just got both sizes of the twister ruler so am thinking of trying something with these. I have a christmas tree twister pattern I can work on for next year but if anyone has any other twister type suggestions, I'm open.

    I love this idea. I really need patterns for some scrappy projects. I am not well versed enough to do many things without a pattern.

    I got a lil' twister for Christmas and would love to see the Christmas tree pattern from it. I got the small book of patterns with it, but basically it just a bunch of twisters with different size projects, nothing super unique. It does lend itself to a scrappy project though, and if you cut really carefully with the lil' twister you can get 2.5" squares left over for a border or pillow or something. My instructions say that with the larger twister you can get 5" squares left over to use for the lil' twister projects.
