Scrappy Wednesday


I finished the Temecula Marvelous Monday Mini block.  It is at an angle shot, but yes, that one HST is off.  I can't find my little 3.5" square ruler  I use when working tiny blocks - makes cutting and square up so much nicer.  So I have a bit of a 'wonk' and I can live with that - my great gran did, so I can too.


I will be working on finishing up step #2 of Kevin's Mystery.  I am digging thru those gifted bags of scraps for strips of red.  Yes, I could just pull the FQ tote and cut some nice clean, crisp strips - BUT where is the fun in that?  I am going looking for treasure.  I see some Blues and Yellows that I can use - whoop!!


I'm allowed to play today - I finished up the Blue Trip Quilt flimsy.  Some of these blues will certainly come and play in the Sapphire quilt.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. The wonkyness of that block really gives it a truely traditional feel.

  3. I like the wonky, it adds character and shows it's handmade.

  4. Those little rulers have a way of disappearing. I lost mine for quite a while, and then found it in one of my project boxes. It's come in handy for these blocks.

  5. Ooo! I love the fabrics you used in this block. Are these reproductions of vintage fabrics? Also, I was seriously thinking about doing this Temecula project but didn't. Now I'm wishing I had. Where do I find the info about it?

  6. I'll have to take your word for the wonky, but aren't we all a little wonky?? Cutting up fabrics and sewing them back together...:)
