Scrappy Wednesday

I'm happy to say that the HST quilt is now a flimsy.  The final border was trims from a quilt backing and there was enough for binding - all used up (well, one string in the tote and a few squares in the barrels).  A happy blend of scraps.  If I had backing for it, it would go under the needle for quilting - so it goes on the pile to wait.

And my daughter sent me another photo of a quilt top collaborated with her daughter - that curly headed muffin.  She picked the pattern and fabric, helped lay it out, and manned the foot pedal while Mom manned the needle.  I think I need to pass on my little Brother (with added finger guard.) 

Today I will work on these Sawtooth Star blocks that go with the ladder blocks - progress that project a little more.

And I like to take breaks from sitting at the machine.  That time will be used to clean up this shelf.  I have pulled from it and thrown project left overs back on it.  Some I am sure can be broken down into my barrels, but I am thinking a Bow Tie quilt needs to be made.  An easy math block and eats up lots of scraps.

We are cold, windy, and snowy for Earth Day - I think Mother Nature is pissed!

Stay Safe and Healthy,
Sewingly Yours,

I totally love it. It turned out so cute. It looks large! I still have bits and pieces to work with from my pile. I wanted to do something different for a while.
