Simply Retro Quilt Along and Scrap Basket Sunday: I'm Here!

What? It was National Pink Day yesterday?
Where was I?
Well, the only thing I can do to make it up
to myself is to make it Pink Week!
I am going to share fun pink pictures all week long!
Yes, I just might include a pink pincushion too!

I have some other catching up to do also.
Yesterday was Scrap Basket Sunday
and I actually worked on something.
Something red white and blue...
I have been away from the group for several weeks...
I'm sure they didn't even miss me... but I am glad to 
be back, working on a little scrap project.
Scrap Basket Sunday

Lots of stars!The little print fabrics I found at a "quilter's yard sale" a couple of
months ago. I'm so happy to be using them!

Simple Retro Quilt Along

Today is the first day of Simple Retro quilt along that I enlisted into.
The sew along hostess is Jana Machado. I hadn't been to her blog until
recently. She is also making the Deck-ade BOM from Fat Quarter Shop.
I love Camille's book and thought it would be fun to work through the book in this
sew along.
I had my fabrics all sorted and picked out from my stash for my project.
I am starting with Swell.

 I made a several of the blocks... they went together so fast!
This is going to be so cute... I can't wait to start sewing the
units into blocks.
Another project I was playing with is this one... 

I shared a link to a video on making this block a couple weeks ago.
It is still in progress... I will be making 6 more blocks and I will be putting
snowball corners on all of the blocks... you can see I have
only added them to two of my star blocks so far.
I am counting this on Kim's SBS group... the backgrounds are truly scrappy
and the fabrics came from my stash... but the snowball corners
is a new purchased to audition
with the blocks.
I think the blue will work.

Gosh Sinta, I can't wait to see what your swell block will look like, the fabrics look great! I can't wait to start the star one when I get to that page, I think the HST make them easier than diamonds!
