Find the Good

Browsing flickr is a great past time of mine. I get so much inspiration while perusing all the creativity that is there. Here are a few of my new finds. My mom wants to do something similar with her picnic table. She has been collecting tiles at garage sales and she thinks she is getting close to having enough. Picnic tables or quilts this tile style is delightful.



Tile blocks

I really like the embroidery with floss on this simple block. I have big plans for a quilt I'm creating and embroidery floss. May be a while before that is done.

The echo effect with the fabric and the quilting really caught my eye in this colorful creation

And you know I love anything scrappy. So when I saw this scrappy happy bag I just had to share it.

  7. Really like the top one. That would be fun to do with a quilt as you go method! I've told you before how much I enjoy these posts. But I'm not sure I've thanked you for them, the theme, finding the pics to go with them and posting them, I realize it all takes time, but well worth it. Thanks!

  12. Hi, I am Bonnie B (Thescrappybee.blogspot.com) and I made these blocks. What fun they are to make. Take scraps and lay out on block, cut to fit and sew. The layout was quick but the stitchin took a lot longer. Thanks for showing my blocks on your site.
