It’s that time again, people!
Once again, it’s the day my friend Gun in Sweden and I host ScrapHappy, a day for showing something made from scraps.
Another postage stamp block for Ella Dee’s quilt. I’m not getting on very quickly with this one, mainly due to The Cloths of Heaven and a couple of other private/secret projects eating up all my time just now. And February’s going to be a busy month for travelling, so it may be even more inadequate next month! We’ll see…
I have a plan and a drawing for the postage stamp quilt, something a little bit different. There are 13 blocks completed now, and another 12 to go, and then I can start assembling things.
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 whether you’ll have something to show.
Here’s a couple of photos of a project made by Lorij from strips of scrap fleece; look at that lovely neat hand quilting on the red back! Lorij doesn’t have a blog but joins us occasionally here in photos.
