I love scrap quilts—all scrap quilts. I have LOTS of scraps (and I’ll bet some of you do to). Okay, okay, I’m a fabric hoarder! For the last few days, I have been organizing my scraps (at least some of them).
When my sister was here for my Dad’s memorial/burial, she stayed at my house a couple of days. She isn’t a quilter, so we decided to do some marathon “Game of Thrones” watching. The problem with that is I find it hard to just sit and watch TV without working on SOMETHING. This is how I solved that problem. She ironed some of my scraps, while I cut them into useable segments on a portable table set up in my living room in front of the TV. (These pictures are of the same “stuff” only from different angles.)
I also made an “Opportunity Block” for a quilt retreat I’ll be going to in the fall. The retreat committee makes a quilt from the blocks turned in, and someone who has made a block will win the quilt in a drawing.
golf quilt (My sister said she had no idea how big it was from the picture. It measures approximately 60” X 72”.), I’ve made a mug rug, I have three “kennel quilts” cut out and ready to quilt, I have cut out lots of pieces for a red, white, and black scrap quilt, and have cut out lots of pieces for a scrap “L” quilt. (You can see the blocks for that slightly above the blue shoe box on my dining room table in the picture above.)
Now isn’t this fabric “rope” cool. I’ve been making this from my scraps too. I’m really liking the way it looks; now I just have to figure out what to do with it. Suggestions?
