Have you seen Pat Sloan's Scrap Happy Sew Along? She has some fantastic-looking shoo-fly blocks she's making this month from scraps. Here's a photo to entice you:
I love the way she's used a mix of black and white prints for the backgrounds with vivid colors for the shoo-fly triangles, don't you? Of course, there are many other color combinations/options you could use if you prefer a different style. Click HERE to visit her blog and see the whole post with a link to the pattern. One of the things I like about the pattern is that she's using leftover 5" charm squares from other projects--and those of us who participate in the monthly Schnibbles projects over at Sinta's and Sherri's blogs know there are ALWAYS leftover charm squares, right? What a great way to use them!
If you haven't joined me in Scrap Basket Sunday in the past, maybe Pat Sloan's idea will give you incentive to join me one of these weekends. Check out her post and take a look in your scrap basket.
