Some Scrappy Goodness!!!

 So I didn't get a whole lot of sewing done over the Holiday.  Ya know, it's all about family while the kids are out of school.   But now they are back, and I have been sewing up a scrappy storm :) Remember that stack of Rainbow Petals I shared before Christmas . . . 

And how I was going to start sewing them all in 2022 . . .   Well, 6 day's in and I have a stack of Scrappy Prairie Star Blocks and I just love them!!!   The notches that are cut with the AccuQuilt GO! Prairie Star BOB Die  really made lining up everything super easy so the piecing went really fast.   And see those white background pieces, they are totally put in with Y seams!!!  I was a little nervous at first, but after a few it was like, ya, what was I so nervous about ;)  And they look so awesome and I love that this traditional block is put together in the traditional way!!!     I can't wait to share it all finished :)  

And I will admit, I was so excited about cutting out all of those rainbow petals and seeing them in pretty stacks . . . that over the break, I decided to try another "to make someday" quilt  :)   My blue scraps were out of control, like totally spilling out of the bucket!  So I sorted through and paired them with some great brown scraps because I love that color combo for an "all boy" feel.    Can you tell what Classic Quilt Block I made from this little sneak peek??  Click here for a big hint, tee hee hee.  


And no surprise, I had so much fun cutting out the first set of blocks, before I even started piecing them (because remember, I was going to wait until 2022 to sew them)  I decided on a second combo.   I mean, if I was going to make an "all boy" quilt I might as well make an "all girl" quilt as well.   So pink and black scrap buckets are now a little lower as well ;)    And I admit, I might have started sewing on these blocks a little before 2022.  I couldn't help but squeak some sewing machine time now and them, but most of it was while the kids were enjoying their time to sleep in :)   


 I don't know what it is about scrappy quilting goodness, but it sure makes me happy!!!  It is just so fun to see so many bits and pieces from so many quilts come together into a beautiful block!!  Now to transform them into some beautiful quilts.  More to come soon ;)    

I hope you are all having a very Happy (and maybe Scrappy) Quilting Day!!!

Merry Christmas

 Merry Christmas from Our Family to Yours



Each year Jacob (my sweetheart) writes a Christmas Letter and I send it out to friends and family.  So of course, I wanted to share it with my friends here at Happy Quilting!!!   So here is what has been happening with the Corry's, and just a hint, there is a little secret sewing shared in it ;)  


Dear Family and Friends

            Another year has passed us by and unfortunately the Dodgers are no longer reigning World Series Champs, but at least the Astros didn’t win.     

            We are still happily settled in Cedar City. I fill my time with work, the cabin and helping to coach our county NICA mountain bike team in the summer and fall.

            Melissa continues to occupy herself with all things quilting. People are often amazed by how many quilts she puts together in a year. She’s been working on another book that I think will be released this coming year.

            Spencer is currently serving in the Frankfort Germany mission. We experienced home MTC together and even shipped him up to Salt Lake for a week while we went to Lake Powell early on. He was able to go straight to Germany from the MTC and has been over the pond (does that apply to all of Europe or just England?) since September. He is currently in his second area with his second companion. We love seeing and speaking with him every Thursday and miss him desperately. I have come to the conclusion that nothing can prepare you for your first child leaving home.

            Jessi is a junior at Success Academy and Cedar High School. She recently finished her 3rd Cross Country season. As she was able to run all season without injury it was a resounding success. She has also started dating and driving, neither of which give me significant comfort, but she hasn’t wrecked Penelope (the name she has given our 20 year old Ford Escape) and has a really good group of friends which does give me significant comfort.

            Kristian is a freshman at Success Academy and Cedar High School. He participated in his first high school mountain biking season this year (having competed as a Jr Devo rider the past 2 years). Obviously his biggest change of the year has been going from a shared room to having the whole room to himself. He keeps his room much cleaner now that his older brother is gone (one of the very few benefits to having Spencer gone). It seems Kristian has grown inches and dropped octaves in the past year and I find him to be quite helpful when working on projects around the house.

            Kamryn is a 7th grader as Cedar Middle School. She also took on Mountain Biking this year and thoroughly enjoyed herself. It was a challenge getting her over her fear on her first few rides, but once she got to know her coaches she settled in nicely and is looking forward to the spring when she can get back together with her teammates.  She also has found a love of playing the piano and is excelling quickly with her Aunt ShaLiece as her teacher. 

            Jocelyn is still our baby. I like to tease her that she doesn’t get to grow past 7. Alas she is a 4th grader at South Elementary. She spends most of her time at friends’ houses or in the basement or backyard with neighborhood friends. I’ve never known someone who can sing as much as she can. You never have to wonder if Josie is home. If you can’t hear singing, then she isn’t around.

            It has been a wonderful year for all of us. We wish you a Merry Christmas and if you are receiving this letter we look forward to the time we can see or talk with you again.

 

Love,


The Corry Family
