So what scrappy thing have I been doing?
I have forged ahead with my first scrappy project which actually predates Scraptastic Tuesday and am happy to have a finished quilt to share with you today!
It started out like this - a lot of handkerchief corners ..(yes I did piece it all in rows)
But I realised I didn't want to make a quilt full of these blocks! So I unpieced the rows and paired them up with some left over tumbler blocks I stitched into Dresdens.
And made a quilted background from lots of Low Volume 2.5" squares which I quilted with a floral pattern ....
And here is the final quilt.... it is made from scrappy everything - top, border, backing fabric, wadding and binding. I feel like this is a totally free quilt....
Did I make a difference to my scrap mountain? It doesn't seem like it at the moment ....guess I'll just have to keep on stitching on!
I need to write a proper tutorial for my next sampler block - it is another 15" one and not at all tricky that size! If you have made a Farmer's Wife quilt you might even recognise the block but I'm not quite there yet with writing that tutorial!
Don't forget to see what Leanne has been up to - apart from playing with her little ginger kittens! So cute!
