Scraptastic Tuesday


I pulled this over flowing tote to play with Monday with a set purpose.


To build houses for the House Block Party (see side bar button).  This one is for the block lotto.  My 300 year old brick house is this wonky and the poor little Maple next to it has had so much storm damage it looks this way.


And this one is to be donated for the charity quilt.


The Amish Nines is a first February finish, too.  This was made entirely from scraps.  Those little nines needed small amounts so not too many solid scraps were used up.  The Kona black is left over strips from prior projects - what's left is going into some log cabin blocks.  The back was  a piece of Thimbleberries - just enough.  I used a scrap piece of Quilter's Dream Select cotton batt with scrap piece of crafter's felt - makes these mini wallhangings hang nice and flat.
