Gardening....

of the fabric kind!

While I enjoyed making these Swedish Blooms,

 they did not prove


the scrapbuster block I was looking for!

I then came across this  

Amsterdam quilt with tulips!

So I turned my hand to these....

  
And they have been great for cutting down the 

scraps!


I've enjoyed going through my fabrics,

finding fabrics I had forgotten about 

or remembering who gave them to me!

(Thanks Carla, there are some from you in here!)


All blocks have been made from my scraps!

I'm hoping to have this top together pretty soon!

Linking up with Leanne and Nicky


for Scraptastic Tuesday!

Happy Sewing...
