Glitter is the best reward

Now that Twinkle Twinkle is truly finished, I can proceed with all my other projects with a clear conscience.  (Well, some of my other projects.   Given how many projects I've currently got underway, it really wouldn't be possible to work on all of them on one day...)

First up, a bit of Glitter, because that's the best reward for a job well done.


I've cut out lots of pieces for Glitter, while cutting for other projects, then stashed them in a bin.  A quick rummage through the stacks gave me the bits for these little funsies.  And three out of four of them even feature green for May's RSC color.  (May is going to be great - I have lots of green!)

Of course, I had a lot of leftover stuff from last month's RSC 'multicolor'.  I had cut out some blocks, but they got set aside when Twinkle Fever hit.  Now was their moment.

Four new Centennial Stars appeared.


This one is my favorite - nothing says 'multicolor' like a good Kaffe print.


And I got a Jacks block done, using an old print from my stash matched up with a very new print.


And one little Buckeye Beauty, who wanted to be photographed with the pink leader/ender spool block.


Aren't they sweet little friends?  Though it looks like they both need a haircut...


I'll be linking with SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday, and with Quilting is More Fun than Housework for Oh Scrap!  Come see all the fun!
(Though it may take me a bit to get the links up - I'm currently at my oldest daughter's house, and my youngest daughter arrives tonight.  We've got a fun-packed weekend lined up, including going to Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival on Sunday.  I'm so excited that I'm already jumping up and down!)

I know you are in heaven -- time with the girls AND a little bit of wool on the side! I'll expect a full report with photos.

Sounds like a great weekend ahead of you! So fun to see all your busy, scrappy work! Glitter is definitely my favorite--been tempted myself by that pattern!

I just taught the Buckeye Block to a group who have never heard of it - they love it. Pretty blocks in fun scraps.

Lovely blocks, lots of scrappy colour! The 'glitter' ones are my favourite! Enjoy the weekend.

It's so much fun to see the return of piecing chaos...always so happy and inspiring. And I will be thinking of you with envy at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. Molly forbids me to go.

A haircut? Gosh! Do quilters have to be hairdressers too? This quilting thing is starting to be a full time job, lol. Love your blocks; the glitter ones, the Kaffe Centennial Star and Jack, now to say about Jack? That block certainly did put its best multicolored foot forward! Love them all. Enjoy the darling company this weekend ... and the wool. Don't forget the camera. We want pictures. Enjoy! ;^)

Great looking blocks and such variety of projects! Fun to have you share the going's on!

I know exactly how you feel about needing to finish something to the exclusion of everything else, when you would rather work on everything else! Looks like you got a chance to work on a little of this and a little of that this week! Have fun with your daughters - sounds wonderful to me!

I always enjoy seeing all your gorgeous projects moving forward. The centennial stars all look so different from each other. Enjoy your time with your daughters.

Mixing old with new and stripes with florals? The PERFECT scrappy quilt!! Looking forward to seeing what you do with GREEN for the RSC.

It"s always good to see more of your Glitter blocks - waiting patiently to see your finished quilt, it's going to be a beauty.
I agree with you on the Kaffe fabrics, can be used most anywhere and always look good. Hope you're enjoying your weekend.

Lots of pretty blocks at your place. Your Glitter blocks are my favorites.

Glad you are back to making blocks especially Glitter blocks!

Hope a good time was had by all at the festival!
