Hurray, tis done, tis done!
Once again, it’s the day my friend Gun in Sweden and I host ScrapHappy, a day for showing something made from scraps.
And I’m extremely Happy to tell you that the very Scrappy Grey Nomad quilt is completed. The scrappy sashing and scrappy binding are on, and here it is in all its magnificent scrappyness:
And the back:
It was actually ready over a week ago, but I decided to hold it back for this post to celebrate a shoebox and more of scraps used up. Now all I have to do is come up with another nice long project that will use loads of scraps. Thinks… I suspect it may be hand-stitched hexies for a good while. Bigger pieces – I’m using 2 inch hexie papers, which are 2 inches on each side – but still scraps. I’ll be making a good start on it when I go on leave in a week’s time, as it’s my travel handwork.
ScrapHappy is open to anyone using up scraps – no new fabrics. It can be a random or formal quilt block, a pillow or pincushion, a bag or hat, a collage or rag rug. Anything made of scraps is eligible. If your scrap collection is out of control and you’d like to turn them into something beautiful instead of leaving them to collect dust in the cupboard, why not join us on the 15th of each month? Either email me at the address shown on my Contact Me page, or leave a comment below. You can also contact Gun via her blog to join. You don’t have to worry about a long term commitment or even join in every month, just let either of us know a day or so in advance if you’re new and you’ll have something to show, so we can add your link.
