It was a stormy night..

Sounds like a Gothic novel...
It was a stormy night in Texas, I am sure you saw it on the news this morning.
All of the storms were to the south, north and west of us, we just got some rain.
I was at home by myself sewing (messing with blocks) on my Piece of Cake 3 and got a little bored, so I started something new ... shocking I know....

I used the scraps from cutting my blocks to make this up, the start to a little wall hanging from Camile's new book,Simply Retro.
I will probably let it sit in the corner of my design wall for awhile before working on it further, but it was a fun little exercises while watching breaking storm news all evening.  My daughter came in and told me I just need 19 more to make a quilt! (the daughter that does not sew)
Sharing with Show and Tell Tuesday


  1. Nice use of scraps. Isn't it fun to start something new - it always is for me. Finishing - not so much. Looking forward to seeing where you'll go with this.

  2. Those daughters that don't sew can really get you in trouble! She's right you know, it's so pretty and it would make such a pretty quilt. Or a pillow.

  3. The star looks great, how big is it? You could maybe make it into a table centre if you didn't want to make 19 more! It's so funny when the non-sewers come in with their words of wisdom - my mum is the same! :o)

  4. Sometimes, free piecing is very profitable! As your lovely scrappy star shows!

  5. What a great way to use your scraps!
