Pulling Out the Singer and Scraps


Because I need a project, I decided to start another quilt. I still have plenty of "magic fabric" from a garage sale find, so I am not purchasing any material. It's more fun knowing it's not costing me anything. It will truly be a scrap quilt. But that's ok.  Don't let the sneak peek of some of the fabric scare you. I THINK it will be ok........






*******************

Several of you asked about the pie. Well, so easy....

Graham cracker crust
1 can Eagle Brand milk
1 sm. can frozen lemonade (partially thawed)
1 sm. carton Cool Whip

Mix all ingredients. Pour into crust. Chill. Can top with more Cool Whip or whipping cream.

    Good luck with the quilt. :-)

  6. HOW FUN!
    I spent 4th of July weekend scrapbooking! Some of my pages look like your "chosen" scraps.
    Keep us posted, I know the quilt will look wonderful... (HUGS))
    PS> If you come down to FL, we'll go to the Wilderness Lodge (I'm always looking for an excuse for a fun time. LOL)

  8. Hi! I am returning the visit. I think we are a lot alike...which is kind of scary..lol

    I think those fabrics are very old. Some of them are from chicken feed bags from the 50's, but I suppose you know that. I am going to see if I can find some pictures of the quilts I gave my daughter which have many of those same fabrics
    in them....all made by my gramma & mother back in the 50's & 60's.

    Love your blog...thanks for popping in...and I am following!

  12. There's nothing like a scrap quilt when you already have all the scraps you need, huh! I have a ba-jillion scraps like yours, they look mah-velous! Just think how cozy for winter coming up when it's done!

    Mmmmmm, the pie sounds wonderful (I've never heard of it!)... it's been so hot and muggy here, that would be good to take the edge off, for sure!

    Hope you're feeling better and healing quickly! Prayers and blessings! :-)
