Scrappy Sunday

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mothers out there!

I don't know how it could have been a better day!  I played golf this morning and shot a pretty good score.  When I got home, I sat down at my sewing machine and went to work. I sewed the binding to two quilts, cut lots and lots of 1" strips and started "Small Steps", a heirloom courthouse steps quilt created by Jo Morton.  Here is my first six blocks, all of which are 5" square.  I only need to make 138 more!

I also cut and pressed 160 HST for a quilt along over at Aunt Reen's Place!  I am using "Punctuation" layer cake (another stash buster!)

And best of all, I watched Tiger kick Cry Baby Sergio's butt!  I hope that your mother's day was as good as mine!!


  1. Sounds like you had a great Mother's Day. I must try to make some of those blocks.

  2. What a happy day! And your courthouse steps blocks are great--they'll make a beautiful quilt in just . . . oh, six months or so! LOL!

  3. Your little Courthouse Steps blocks are fabulous.
    I always love your fabric choices. This is going to be another beautiful quilt!
    I like your fabrics for the Mystery quilt too!

  4. I love the look of the courthouse steps! That will make an awesome heirloom! Can't wait to see it finished

  5. You accomplished quite a bit for the day! Those scrappy Court House Steps are great looking. The Punctuation fabric looks cheery and fun... a perfect summer quilt!

  6. Hi Sandy...
    Thank-you for visiting!
    I am so glad to see you are joining in the fun with Doreen's Mystery Quilt.
    Can't wait to see how they all turn out! Your fabric is so ill be a sweet quilt.

    Have a great week!
