Welcome once again to ScrapHappy Day!
It’s the day my friend Gun in Sweden and I host ScrapHappy, a day for showing something made from scraps.
Today, my scrappiness is tied in to the Tyger quilt I’ve been making recently. It needed another row to make it the ‘right’ length to my eye, but as a medallion format based around a square, the pattern couldn’t easily be stretched. So I decided to add 5 more scrappy blocks made from fabric leftovers and other small scraps I already had. Here’s the line-up! I’m pretty pleased with the blocks, but you’ll have to wait till my next Tyger post to see how they worked with the whole thing.
ScrapHappy is open to anyone using up scraps of anything – no new materials. It can be a quilt block, pincushion, bag or hat, socks or a sculpture. Anything made of genuine scraps is eligible. If your scrap collection is out of control and you’d like to turn them into something beautiful or useful 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 on my Contact Me page, or leave a comment below. You can also contact Gun via her blog to join. We welcome new members. You don’t have to worry about making 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. Regular contributors will receive an email reminder three days before the event.
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). Today we welcome a new member – click on the final link and hop over to say hello to Viv!
