Scrappy Wednesday

Confessions Of A Fabric Addict

I love having scraps and playing with scraps, but it got to a point of being over whelmed - so I shared some of my gifted and own pieces with our sewing ladies thru the weeks.  Things laid out on the long banquet table and come help yourself.  Oh, I could keep it - stuff the boxes, totes, shelves, BUT never to be used up or seen.  Sharing is more fun. 


I have plenty of scraps to play with, like my bits of CW fabrics that I have saved right to the smallest piece.  They are coming in handy with the Temecula Quilt Co Marvelous Minis.


Even my temperature rosettes are being made with scraps.  I chose to designate the eclipse in this weeks as it was a special event for the year.  76,73,74,77, 80,E,80


Someone asked to see how the Rolling Nines block looked set together, so I set them out.  The prints are from a FQ bundle, but I am using up some Kona White that was cut offs from a few quilts.


My smallest bits of throw aways from that snip bag - eight pineapples done and I need to make eight more.  These are paper pieced and 3.5" unfinished.  Todays project!!

Now go play,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. Your nod to the eclipse makes me smile, I wondered what that black one was doing there. Thanks for the rolling nine patch, it helps to see them together. I've admired those pineapples but I didn't realize they were so small, I love them even more.

  2. Oh, I totally love the eclipse hexi. What a fun little surprise when you finish your quilt. I once considered taking up beekeeping, and in my reading I recall this line: You'll start for the bees, you'll quit because of the honey. There's a lot of honey in beekeeping, and you need lots of friends to take some of it off your hands. It's kind of like that with quilting: You'll start for the quilting, you'll quit because of the scraps!

  6. I love the recognition of the eclipse. I'm thinking about a temperature quilt for my son. He's an eagle scout and loves outdoors. I didn't know until recently that my 40 year old doesn't particularly care for red, so I can use lots of blues, grays and yellows - that should make a nice quilt for him since blue is his fav. Love your inspiration.
