I finally got back to the sewing room today after weeks and weeks of being absent.

My focus lately has been on our garden the kids and I have planted.  If you want to see pop over to  for my post and thoughts.

I diligently worked on a quilt top that I am planning as I sew.  It is a scrap chomper, and though it is taking a serious bite out of my scraps, I still have mounds left over.

This quilt started out as a herringbone pattern similar to  http://www.bijoulovelydesigns.com/   designed.  Now, it is telling me to veer off and make it my own.  We shall see how it develops but as I am sewing by the seat of my pants.

 I hope to have photos of it soon.  The only way I can describe it is that it is truly scrappy in the pure sense of the word.

No planning in how they are placed, I just tried to keep the lights and darks mixed evenly.  The fabrics range from mainly cotton, poly blends and even a few that are unidentifiable.

I have fabrics from my purchases, my mothers, friends, my grandmother and my aunts, some are very old and some are new.  So fun watching a new quilt top take shape, I cannot wait to see what it turns out to look like.
