I’ve not written here for a whole month; we’ve just started some major building work on the house so we’re living in a lot less space than usual and it’s a bit tricky to get any sewing done.
Before the builders started I had a little bit of a sort out and tidy up and found a bag of Parson Gray scraps from a couple of quilts I had made; one for my brother and one for Siblings Together.
I also found a box with Kaffe Fassett stripy scraps leftover from a quilt I made for Mathias and finished in 2011:
So yes it was definitely time to move these on:
So I offered these up on IG for free and sent them off to their new homes, hopefully they will be used and not sit in someone else’s cupboard for years! I certainly feel better about not having them in my stash.
These scraps that I’ve been adding to over time now may have a purpose:
On Saturday at the South West MQG meeting Helen brought the most gorgeous quilt to Show and Tell, it’s a low volume log cabin quilt, you can see it here. It is an ideal project for my low volume scraps; today I have the first day off at home alone for ages so I may spend some time pressing and cutting strips.
