Monday Making 4/10/17


I will be joining BETH and friends today with some simple play that will hopefully clean up a few scraps and found items.


This is my overflowing mess of gray scraps after digging for pieces for my RSC17 piggie blocks.


I've been doing some purging and reorganizing and came across this lone pack of mini charms.  I used the Modern Background in lite tones for my Leap Year Quilt - these are the 'Ink' collection.


Simple boxed squares to marry these two should do the trick and we shall see what interesting finish comes from the day's play.


All the pieces have been cut and paired with their little mini charm.  Now the rest of the scrappy grays are folded neatly into that plastic shoe box - and I can close the lid!

Take time to play today,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. Love your color combos, too. You are so organized in your clean up.....I have been just a slug. Keep kicking and I will get going.

  3. Those grays and blacks should make a pretty quilt. Sometimes neutrals are so pretty together. I'm getting ready to make a baby quilt for a friend's newest grandchild. Specifications are elephants, grays, aquas. Looking forward to using some of my own grays.

  5. Lovely colours together, the boxed squares look great, and the darker greys will fit in so well.

  6. I think I'd have to work 24/7 for the next 10 years to use up all my scraps and fabric! You're so diligent, Sharon! I love the greys -- I have a thing for grey fabric lately! :)

  8. Such a simple block, but it has a lot of impact in gray and black. A great way to use up those odds and ends.

  9. Your grays and the mini charms are perfect together. I am imagining a nice masculine quilt...
