Monday's Wall 11/16/15


I had all these bonus HSTs from my Heritage Star quilt and I liked this block on the Moda Block Shuffle.  Plus, I'm using up some cut-off muslin backing.  Just some block making play with no plan.


I was sorting thru a bag of scraps my Aunt gifted me and found she had a lot of partial projects she must have gotten tired with or maybe just not enough fabric to continue.  I think this was an attempt at either a Disappearing 9-patch or a Puss-in-the-Corner, but the pieces (and piecing)  weren't consistant and I had to pull things together.


I used what I could find in the bag and added some of my own fabric (you can see the differences in the blacks).  And I went with a new block.


Some of the rows assembled and you can see where the design is going.


And if I can get this fat cat to nap elsewhere, I might get the last bit of quilting done so I can put the binding on and my 'Tucker' will be finished.

Yes, that's my very first cutting matt under the table - well used.  It's purpose now is a pad under my other machine which happens to be put away at the moment.

May your Monday be full of stitches,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. I too enjoy playing with scraps. Looking good mixing up your block with the disguarded ones from your Aunt. Cat looks so content it would be a shame to disturb him!

  5. What a fun find!! Your Puss-in-the-Corner project looks great up on the wall! I'm glad you were able to make it work! I'm going to have to investigate this "Tucker" thing. You're the second (or third) person I've seen talk about their 'Tucker'. I see the link on you page, so off I go!! :)

  10. Great blocks from your bonus HSTs. I would not thought of putting those colors together in your other project, but it is looking really good!
