Scrappy Wednesday

Before I started anything, I knew I had to clean my machine after stitching all of those Log Cabin blocks with that older fabrics.  They fray and shed and create a lot of mess in your machine.  I have a small vac attachment (and I use on the computer as well) to get most of this stuff out and then fine tune with tweezers, small brush, Q-tips, and oil. 

I wanted to catch up on some of the Tiny Tuesday blocks.  Luckily these don't use a lot of 'color' fabrics as I have very little Orange - enough to get these done for the month.

This is a fun block - Bear Paw Bow Tie, very tiny HSTs that I love to make.

With those out of the way early this morning, I can now tackle my main project - quilting the Log Cabin quilt.

My prayers and thoughts are with those in the path of the severe storms and flooding.  Stay safe,
Sewingly Yours,


  1. Well now...I never thought to use my mini vacuum on my computer. (said rolling my eyes) What a great idea. I think I will clean that out today. Happy stitching.

  2. My goodness, fluff gathers quickly! Your little blocks are lovely, hope the quilting is going well.

  3. It’s amazing how quickly that lint gathers. I’m liking the orange in your blocks.

  4. Love your blocks. Hmmm i may want to clean my baby or take her in for a tuneup. That log cabin came together rather quickly
