Scrappy Wednesday


This is my scrappy inspiration - I think I tore this out of a Quilter's World magazine????  Well some magazine, with the hopes to use it to manage some of my Civil War fabrics.  These are obviously 4" blocks, but believe it or not - I am going with 8".  I love tiny, but the goal is to eat up those fabrics and a larger block will do that.


I have just a few more ladder blocks to make and all the pieces have been cut.  I'm keeping these all red/green so I don't have to play around with setting and trying to keep same color blocks touching.


All of the 'color' parts are cut for the star blocks and now I have to cut the shirtings.  I made a 'dent' in my Civil War prints and I should clear out a lot of the smaller pieces of shirting before I cut into some of the yardage.

Its to be a rainy day and my only interruption is taking Bella a mile up the road to the Vet for her annual check up and shots.  Even the veteranary is isolating.  I have to call from the parking lot and they will come out and get her, and then deliver her back to me in the lot.  Bella is a very nervous cat, so it will be interesting to see how she handles this.

Stay Safe and Healthy,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  3. Great way to use up some stash. We are supposed to get rain staring tonight and lasting a couple of days, so I'll be getting busy on the next Vintage Christmas blocks next.

  11. I foresee you getting the cold shoulder for a few days after the vet visit. Good luck reducing the amount of scraps. I seem only to make more. It was snowing here about an hour ago.

  12. The pattern is actually for 3" blocks! I made mine 6" and I absolutely love it. It's from a book called Beyone the Battlefield.
