Jacy:
I said you'll have to learn to sleep in a crib!

Good one Jacy!  Pretty squares, maybe four sewn together would make a potholder?

Just got back from Tx late last night. Loved spending a week with the grandkids and daughter's family. Had a great time. Will work a bit today on the flannel Christmas present quilts. Sure haven't gotten far on them. Too many interruptions :-)

Know what you mean about too many interruptions....seems I only get started before the phone rings or someone in the family needs something. Have three quilts pieced just need to quilt. Two are baby gifts and the largest is for my #3 grandson as a Christmas "getting married" gift.

I mainly stick with the neutral colors, but if I'm working on a brightly colored quilt top, I do use matching thread.  I'm always afraid some day a thread will pop through somewhere and when it does, it will at least match.   Today I worked on and completed my St. Remy de Provence.  I don't generally like large blocks, however, in this one it is gorgeous.  I used antique roses and pale pinks.  I'm hooked.  I think my favorite thing right now is the Japaneze and Asian fabrics.  Wow, what colors and imagination.

Hey, Nana ~~ looks like the trying to get them to use scraps is working~~ this is the kind of things I do all the time, using the tiny scraps.  After I do the steps on the July Scappy, it looks a lot like the ones I do all the time with the small scraps, only I've used up different sized scraps!  My quilting buddies were here today, and we made ourselves some scraps buckets that I found the pattern for - cute and handy.  Now they have a place to put the small scraps while they collect enough for pet pillows!  So we had another fun quilting day - got one top done, and couple more set up ready to go for next time.

the quilting didn't show up very well,   it looks much better in person.

What total size did it end up being?  What was the original challenge?  I can see your pebbling on the reverse side quilting, but not anything else.  As always, beautiful work!
