Friday night sewing and Happy Scrappy Saturday!

Last night I went to the church and sewed with my friends.  It was so much fun.  I saw two new quick things and I'll be doing those sometime this week. As soon as I get everything worked out,  I'll show them to you.   They are really fun and I know you will like them. So, please check back this week for some quick things to make.
I took my red blocks and my scrap strips and worked on those a little. We visited and ate and sewed too.  What a fun time with friends.  Today, I made some Disappearing 4 patches.  I saw these last week and just had to make them along with some easy hearts.   I am still doing the red heart blocks and I'll be making those into a little wallhanging.  I'll be making more DP4 patches. I want to make the DP4 with other colors too. This might turn into a rainbow quilt too.  Time will tell as I haven't made up my mind.  Right now, I'm just trying to use up some scraps.  I did two more Fun and Done red strip scrap blocks and that made me think about using my strips to make a little scrappy bag. I'll be working on that this afternoon.  Now, I'm going to see about making a red scrappy little bag.  I'm loving happy scrappy Saturday...mindless sewing!  Ahhh, just fun sewing while I watch kid shows with my grandbaby.   I have looked at the crumb tutorials on Quiltville and another Crumb Mile a Minute block tutorial and I'll be doing some of those too, maybe....

Here's some pics.  Now back to sewing on red blocks!  I hope you enjoy your weekend and get some sewing time in.

Little Red Hearts

Love the scrappy reds! In my mind, you can never go wrong with red. Great FNSI results. I need to participate one Friday when my brain isn't fried from the work week.
