Scrap-Happy


I wanted to take part in the Let's Book It! at Vroomans Quilts this month because I have two projects that I just found in new magazines and thought I could make either one very quickly.  See below to see why that didn't happen.  I love this

and this 

from here

and I will begin one of them soon.  I'm thinking of making the teapot image into placemats.

So what's my excuse for not getting anything done?   A combination of working more hours and being felled by a bad allergy head cold has kept me away from my sewing machine.  Plus, the project I've been working on is not something you would find very interesting.  I've been organizing my scraps by cutting them up and putting them into groups.  When I began I thought  it would take only a day or two, maybe a few days, to get this accomplished.  Forget it.  It's been a few weeks and I'm still at it.  Granted, between being sick or working has interfered, but still!  Yes, you might say, just throw them out.  Ha ha, that's funny.

I still have more to sort.  I have a log cabin quilt I want to make so this will be helpful, or I may just make some string blocks when I want to do some mindless sewing.

No more time to chat.  I have a pile of scraps to sort.
God Bless You.

Love the teapot pattern! Oh, scrap goodness going on there, too.

Have fun with your scraps. Just think how fast your log cabin quilt will come together after your scraps are all organized!

The teapot pattern is lovely. Getting your scraps all sorted does take ages but I've found it really helps to use them up. Now I just have to pull out the size squares or strips I want and I'm ready to go on my project. Good luck with getting the rest sorted.

The quilt with the triangles and the bird on a limb is one I like. It is very serene lo
