Some More Inspiration

Sue reminded me of the lovely Selvage Blog site.....  I have also been collecting my selvages .... I am almost at the stage where I can make a small something with them......

A site I have only recently found and been enjoying... which has lots of blocks is 15 minutes play..... I love the blocks that have been made with scraps.....  There are a couple of block challenges if you like (I haven't built up the courage yet!) and some tutorials too...... 

I am thinking that when I have a collection of my Wonky Square Eye Spy I might ask for scrappy blocks like some of these??????

Victoria - who writes the blog has another called Bumble Beans which is from her business... she is obviously a very busy and inspirational quilter and teacher......  On this blog there is also links to block challenges and tutorials.

All the blogs I read are inspirational ... and I feel quite bad to highlight some rather than others... but I found these unique in creative ways to use up 'scraps' and small pieces which may otherwise be binned.....

Have a lovely weekend....
