A whole one block this month, but given everything that’s been happening, I’m quite pleased 🙂
I think I need about 4 more blocks and then I can start assembling this quilt. I’m going to need a whole bunch of prairie points, but that’s a piece of cake; it’s just 2½” strips cut into squares and ironed into triangles. The quilt itself won’t be a truly scrappy one: if I can find it, I want to use a dark grey shot cotton sashing in between the blocks, and that will be new fabric. Also, depending on how enthusiastic I’m feeling, the back may also be ‘big’ scrappy, or simply a big piece of generic wideback fabric.
Once again, it’s the day my friend Gun in Sweden and I host ScrapHappy, a day for showing something made from scraps.
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.
Here are the links for everyone who joins ScrapHappy from time to time (they may not post every time, but their blogs are still worth looking at):
