Scrap Basket Sunday 2

Hi Everyone,

I have been keeping up with Kim and her Scrap Basket Sundays.  If you remember from my post last week, I am working from this book:

 
I just love all the projects!  This week I worked on "Hopscotch" and was able to finish piecing it and quilted both it and last week's quilt. 

 
Hopscotch:  It finishes at 18" x 24"
I love the red and brown with the cream.  It really matches last week's project.
 
 
Nellie's Ninepatch:  15" x 18"
 
 
The hardest thing about these projects is trying to decide which one to make next! 
 
Have a great rest of the weekend!
JoAnne

  3. Both quilts are just darling, and I can't believe how quickly you made them. I think I might just have to get on the Scrap Basket train too.

  5. Your Hopsotch quilt is so nice Joann, I just love red and cream colors. I love the scrappy look too. You're having a blast I can tell. Not only are you making blocks but finishing a while mini quilt each week. Awesome!

    1. Oopsie, I spelled it wrong. Of course I meant Hopscotch. Sheesh, sometimes typing on the iPad is like that.

  8. Overachiever! LOL! Boy, you're really on a roll and turning out some cute projects. Do you have plans for these small quilts? I've been trying to make a small quilt each month and putting them aside for Christmas gifts. I'll look forward to seeing what you make next week.

  11. Oh my... your Simply Charming quilts are delightful! I did Nellie's Nine Patch in blue and cream, but after seeing your red and cream mini, I may have to tackle another! I've been eyeing up Hopscotch in the book... you are so right! It's difficult to pick out the next mini to make from Tara's book! (If you would like, you can link your Simply Charming quilts to a post on my blog dated April 1st... it's a showcase of mini quilts made from the book.)
