Thrift Shop Book


Here are some more blocks for the scrappy quilt. I have almost emptied one bag of scraps but there are still lots more if I want to make this one bigger.
Last week in the thrift shop I found this book by Debbie Mumm from 1992. It's still a really nice book with some good ideas.


Here are a few pages.

Your scrappy mile-a-minute blocks look great. Those snowmen look cute, too. I've never been big on Debbie Mumm fabrics, but some of the designs are sweet.

The blocks look great! Another wonderful scrappy! 8-)
I think I have that book in my book shelf also... Good find!
Happy stitchings!

That book is one of the first ones I got when I started quilting. I'm pretty sure I made a number of projects from it (it's the one with the bears, right?), then I moved on. I got rid of it maybe 3 months ago, after lugging it up and down the west coast. Go figure!

The new-ish Mumm fabrics they have at Joann Fabs are pretty yummy. They're still pretty recognizable as Mumm fabs, but they're less... what? Cutesy? Farmy? I don't know, but I've been tempted to pick up a few, especially blenders.

I've been looking for something to make small mini wall hangings that I can change with the seasons in my home. I wonder if something like this would do the trick. hummm...

I had that book a long time ago and made the heart quilt. I really liked the finished quilt and ended up giving it to my Nana's cousin when her husband passed away - I remember is was sort-ov a large throw size but smaller than a twin. I remember that the instructions were really slick and everything went together perfectly - got to love that!
Cheers!

what a fun book-lots of cute patterns, and your blocks look good.

I have made the bunny, cat, snowman and sewing machine ones. She had them for sale as individual patterns in the late 1980's and I just loved them. I have posted the snowman one but don't even have pictures of the bunny and cat. I just gave away the sewing machine top to a friend. You can have some fun with that book.

The new scrappy is looking great.
Love that book, & must keep an eye out for it. Usually I dont find many books like that at the op shops,but sometimes garage sales have such great finds.
