Bordering on

Mondays are sit-and-sew days at Cinnamon's Quilt Shop. A fun time to get together with others of the fabrick-junkie persuasion.  I was able to get 6 more Scrapolator border blocks done.

It's really interesting to view pieces thru the camera's eye: the small pieces of white with black look lost - almost like there's a hole in the block. But there will be a lot of black in the sashing, so I think these will work fine in the full border.  I still have 28 more of these babies to go (and the 15 more "inside" blocks), so it'll be awhile before I'll know if I need to make a few spares.

I'm already starting to think of how to take a pic of the top once it's together because it's HUGE! Something like 91" x 108". That certainly won't fit on my design wall! Could be an "outside" pic - on the grass.

I know we just finished Christmas, but I also just found this cute little tree

 - made from more scraps. Here's the link to my pin on Pinterest. I see some of these in my future.

  1. Thanks Gale...you are going to love that Gelli plate. There are several you tube videos you can watch to help you get started. Oh, did you know you are a noreply blogger. That means you did not put your email in when you set up your settings. So when you leave me a comment on my blog...I cant reply to you. I have to come all the way over here. I usually dont do that. Go into your settings and put your email in. then you can respond to your comments..and people can respond back. Also think about turning off this crazy word verification thingy too.... Just FYIs :):) hugs

  2. The tree ornament is adorable.... and your scrapolator border blocks are awesome. I love when I can go to my favorite quilt shop and sit and sew.... I wish I had more time. Can't wait to see more of your scrapolator quilt!
