Scraptastic Tuesday

13 Oct

As usual there’s been a fair bit of scrappy sewing going on this last month.

Octobers bee blocks for Julie Carol these were great fun to make although they did use up more scraps than I expected (that is not a complaint but a positive outcome!).

I’m quite tempted to make a quilt full of these myself, my husband particularly liked these blocks.  I’m not sure I have enough solids in my stash though.

I finished my Winterberry quilt and I’m using most of the scraps in a cushion cover, there are still a few bits left – well ok they are the selvedges that I trimmed off from the strip sets.  I’ve stitched them on to a piece of cloth and plan to make a little something with it.  It’s quite satisfying to eek out every last piece of this fabric.

  1. This block has been on my to do list for ages Mary – go ahead do the quilt! You do seem to take scrapping very seriously – using every last bit! Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday!

  2. October is my month Mary, Julie was September! The blocks are even better IRL as you know. I’m a great advocate of using every little scrap!

  3. Those blocks would make such a fantastic quilt. I love the idea of using black and white scraps with different coloured solids :)
