Scrappy Wednesday

This fun quilt is commission piece number two being prepped to go under the needle.  This is so large I could not get a photo of the whole thing - not even a quarter full here.  Just look at all that scrappy goodness! And the bubble gum pink and pretty shirtings.  This one is all hand stitched with great care.

A few people mentioned about wetting areas to help with the wavy.  I don't like to use this method too often as you have to just 'mist' not get too wet, and the concern of whether old fabrics are color fast.  I have my trusty little misters - one distilled water and the other a secret mix.  Thread at the ready should I find a little spot that needs repair (just one).  This one was flat and square - I can't wait to quilt.

In this photo there are 6 blocks that had little pieces 'added' so she had a full triangle - so precise in matching and hiding.  Can you spot them?  This is what led me to think someone else did the machine stitching on the first quilt.  I would have loved to have met this quilter.

We are brutally cold again, so a good day to quilt,
Sewingly Yours,


  1. Beautiful! I looked and looked yet only spotted 3 that were pieced with a little extra. What an amazing feat.

  2. What a marvelous scrappy quilt, I'm sure it will be spectacular when quilted.

  3. Well, I might see one spot, but it’s hard to be sure. It’s a fabulous quilt. What a treasure to get to work on these.

  4. Hand stitched, what a lot of dedicated work there.And adding those tiny strips to make up the full triangle. Hope it is slightly less wavy and quilts easily.
