Hooray for (Other People's) Scraps!

I suppose you've all heard about Jodi's Scrap-Along? If not, go check it out. She is helping us use our lovely scraps in fun and beautiful ways. Also, she has lots of bloggy friends who are willing to help us have more scraps. Who doesn't want more scraps, right? Especially those of other people! Well, so I won one of the giveaways -- from Sherri at A Quilting Life. I even bookmarked her, because her stuff is so beautiful! Look at all the gorgeous things she sent me!
A little Paula Prass Flight of Fancy. Some Denyse Schmidt. Some Verna, some Whimsy (sigh!), and some Spring Fever!
And a whole bunch of other gorgeous nibblets -- There's some Bliss, Dream On, Amy Butler, Lila Tueller, and I must confess I don't know what all else. But so gorgeous -- every single piece.
THANKS, SHERRI! I love them!
(Now, don't think that just because I won that I'm going to stop entering the scrap giveaways. Seriously -- no one thought that, did they? I'm hoping I win a bunch more. Yeah, I'm greedy like that, but only for fabric.)

Some mod sampler quilts that I did not make.

Remember this quilt and this one? Well, the pattern is Elizabeth Hartman's, and I fell in love with it immediately. So did my quilt group. After seeing my first one, they had to make their own versions. Here are two of the finished products.
You just can NOT go wrong with sock monkeys. I think this was Susan's third or fourth finished quilt, two more in progress. First time with free motion, though, I think. Great job, Susan!
Somebody else doing her own thing on the back. This was her first machine-quilted quilt. Well, let's be honest. I think this was her first quilt ever. Way to go, Tiffany! I am just so proud of all my quilting friends. They have come quite a long way from the very beginnings of our group 4 years ago. Hopefully I will have more of their work to show you in the near future!
