Bloggers Quilt Festival - 2018






I would like to thank Amy of Amy's Creative Side for once again hosting the Bloggers Quilt Festival.   


I have entered one of my miniatures that represents ME as a quilter.  I love working with scraps - use it all up is my attitude.  Minis can be a fun place to be creative.  You can play with a block with just enough satisfaction that it becomes a finish and not a UFO in the back of the closet.  You can play with your quilting, too - hand or machine.


 

These few scraps were too precious to toss.  


They came from this Kimono Jacket that I made during one of our local quilt guild's challange/classes.


Small scraps turned into smaller blocks.  One inch pieces making two inch unfinished 9-patch cutie pie blocks.


Setting those on point adds to their charm.  Larger scrap pieces were used for the border and binding.  All used up into a very sweet piece.

Please be sure to visit AMY's to see the other entries.  Why not enter something yourself.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. It’s precious, Sharon. I’m working hard to get some of my oldest UFO’s finished because I want to make more minis and use more scraps. You inspire me.

  7. You do such lovely minis. I've mostly just collected little scraps and not made anything other than crumb blocks. Ihope you didn't get too much rain from Florence. You were more in her path than us. We got just a little bit last night.

  8. Hi Sharon! You do that mini proud! I have to say God bless you for tackling those little bitty blocks. I can't imagine using 1" pieces and still be sane. You quilt is just perfect! Boy it's hard to believe those are leftover pieces from the Kimono. Th different setting makes them look totally different. ~smile~ Roseanne

  9. Really cute and nice. Reminds me of that year when we were making mini quilts from a book someone was selling. Our leader dropped the whole project but we continued on our own.
