scrappy quilts

I finished it! well the top anyway, I have not yet quilted it.
I was just really excited to show it off. It's a paper piecing technique. You may have seen it around a few times since there is going to be a quilt a long real soon about it:

Sew Sweetness

but for now I found a different quilt along using your scraps and I thought this would be perfect!

This is what one block looks like. So I just did 4 blocks and put them together.
If you have a lot of scraps laying around (most of us do) then I would suggest a paper piece quilt because if you are like me then alot of your scraps are cut on the bias and paper piecing helps stabelize them.
Some tips for this block is to use a lot of starch and pin, pin, pin, which I talked about in this post

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy.
