Learning to be {scrap} happy

I'm slightly addicted to making my Starburst blocks - probably because they are teaching me a few useful lessons. Things I have learnt so far:

1. If you don't like a block, make another one. Surprisingly the world won't end and sometimes the outcome will make you smile.

2. If in doubt, cut the pieces you plan to use and lay them out. This will help you avoid unintentionally channelling Halloween if its not your thing.

3. A block that starts out looking like it is going to be a bit ho-hum can be unexpectedly pleasing. I can't really identify why I like this block so much but I do. 

Now I must away and try and get my charity quilt basted. I've been successfully avoiding crawling around on the floor for days now!


  1. I can't wait to see that quilt finished! It's going to be fabulous and look great on my couch. (I still don't think that joke is old yet).
    Did you baste you naughty procrastinator you? (Spoken from a true procrastinating expert).

  2. I love all your blocks ; )

  3. I love your scrappy blocks. My recommendation is to not think about it too much - just have fun.
