My next Temperature Quilt rosette and these little things are made right from that never ending scrap pile. I might throw a few small bits in the tote with my papers, punch, scissors and thread, but it is about finding the piece that fits the temp for the day. And as you can see, we had quilte a drop in our weather - right into Fall I think!
Some of the hill towns (you would call them mountains) dropped into the 40's - CRAZY!!!!! Some heavy rains with winds and severe lightening swept in too. All a bit scarey, but we are to slowly warm back up - at least that is what they say, we shall see.
I did prep all my background pieces for these - a mix of muslin and off whites and some of those are pieced - using it up and moving it on. They weren't very exciting in a photo, but I plan to start stitching these rosettes onto their backgrounds with Slow Sunday Stitching.
Some more scraps are in the house! Another bag arrived after this photo and that one seems to have much larger pieces so I will share with Monday's sewing group.
I dumped one bag with a lot of skinnies and bits and got right to work. Bonnie Hunter's scrap challenge block - Rail Fence - and I am mixing log cabins with them. That should use up this bag and maybe some of the others.
I need to make the Temecula Quilt Co Monday Mini's, too. My geese are all done, but I've got a few more to put into the 2 x 8 settings to make 8.5" blocks. It will be a fun Scrappy Wednesday and hopefully a bit warmer day.
