Monday Making 1/16/17


I will joining BETH with some block making.  Switching from scraps to some NEW fabric.  I love scraps, but there is something about new fabrics to freshen inspiration.  They , also, freshen up the scrap pile.


I pulled some of my Rhoda Ruth and Kona 30th Anniversary solid FQ bundles for a test quilt.  I was going to go scrappy for this test quilt, but I have wanted to play with these bundles - so new it is - actually they have been on the shelf a while.


I pulled my Katherine Ann by Patrick Loose to use for the Patch Work Sampler with Fat Quarter Shop.  They haven't listed the fabric requirements, but I think there is plenty of mix with this bundle and there is 4 yards of the Kona Snow - should be just fine.

Yes, I have several boxes of pay-it-forward to send out today and the large brown box arrived the other day and holds my staple Kona's which should last at least half way thru the year.


My tote filled with supplies for Cindy @ Quilt Doodle QAL.  A Dresdan Plate has been on my bucket list, so this works perfect with my left over 30's, feed sacks, and some new.  I'll be hand stitching this one so will take me a little more time.



Then there was this new and old mix for Pat Sloan's Solstice QAL.


I'm a little behind with this one and finished the cabin block and have the rail fence to make before the new block comes on on Wednesday.

I know, I am procrastinating on those borders, but block making just tickles me.  BUT I will get to those borders.

Wind those bobbins and go play,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. Sometimes just using new fabric is the only way to feel good. I use a ton of scraps also. I buy them at thrift stores and a couple people have sent me leftovers they don't want. New fabric puts a spring in your step. Enjoy. Chris
