Scrap Basket Sunday

Okay, who's in the scrappy pool this week?  I am, I am!  Here are my four scrappy blocks:


The blocks I'm working on are for the Pie in the Sky quilt by Kim Diehl in her book Simple Graces.  Here's a picture of the quilt from the book:


Judy sent me a photo of one she saw in a vendor's booth at a quilt show in Petoskey, Michigan:


I'm excited to finish my blocks, but I still have 12 more to make, so it will be another few weeks.  In the meantime, I was "talking" to Sandy from Northern California.  Sandy has been playing with her scraps to make another one of Kim Diehl's patterns that was recently printed in the March/April issue of Fons & Porter magazine--it's called Sprigs and Twigs.  Here's a photo from the magazine:



I think this one might be in my scrappy future too, but who knows when?  Too many quilts and not enough time!

I finally had to break down and buy Simple Graces so I would have the pattern to Pie in the Sky - love it! Added that quilt to my Bucket List and that is my key to immortality since I will have to live to be about 125 to finish all the quits on my Bucket List!

Once again, your blocks are so lovely! I really look forward to seeing them each week. I recently made the twigs and sprigs quilt top, I just need to start quilting it!
I have nothing to share for scrap basket Sunday today because I had a house full of visitors all week and didn't sew a stitch! It was so with it, and I hope to have some progress to show next Sunday. Have a wonderful day!

I think I am going to pull out Sprigs & Twigs and put it on THE list.You always choose such pretty quilts and fabric/color choices.

Rediscovered this post of yours today, Kim, and am captivated by those blocks! How big are they, please?
