Whoop Whoop Friday

I'm happy to say that I finished the last of my month's projects - the small cross stitch piece.  I changed some of the colors and kept the backstitch to just outlining.  The flower centers were filled with either a button or bead.  I would have loved to have been able to center the top and bottom  border, but I was using a scrap of a strip and this was just enough (1.2" left over).  Even the side border with the cute flower pots was a left over strip I found in the strip tote.  The black skinny border and binding - scraps.  Batting scraps (I use two layers) and backing of course is scrap.  Finished size is 10" square.

Then I got the last of the stitches done in the Stone Soup Challenge.  Scraps sent to me by 5 other quilters plus a few of my SIL's and mine that were sitting on the side table to be cut down into my barrel system.  My tutorial for these blocks can be found HERE

I used all of the left over fabrics to piece the back and the label is added in the one row. There is a piece of fabric from each 'donor' in the back.  Thank you Dawn for putting this challenge together.

Hmm, two more days left in the month - what trouble can I get into?

Sewingly Yours,
