Scraps and Squirrels from Sew Preeti Quilts

Picture the scene at the end of the party.  Empty bottles, missing silverware, dirty dishes, stained carpet, mess everywhere and you don't even know where to begin.


Scraps Explosion



Half Made Blocks


The Rainbow Scrap Challenge feels like a party and it IS a lot of fun...till you get to this time of the year.

Now the party is coming to a close and there are blocks everywhere. How many blocks? Did I lose/misplace some? I was going to redo that one but then forgot. Where do I even start?

The Journey Continues from Sew Preeti Quilts


The journey has been long, uphill and relentless.  These pictures are from a display at the Dulles International Airport in February 2020. I believe it is relevant to share them today.

Hunting for the Hunter (Green) from Sew Preeti Quilts

Here is a picture of my stash yardage - most of it at least.
