Monday Making with scraps

After making a few LONG and SKINNY
quilt blocks.....
I put them together into a quilt!
Adding a bit of red made this quilt really shine!

I am slowly using up a LARGE stack of
 6 1/2" squares handed down to me recently.

I was also able to fill a bowl with MY KIND of happiness.

I was able to get a NEW quilt onto my daughter’s bed this week.
The quilt top has been folded up...waiting.....for quite a while now.
It needed just one more row to get it long enough.

The row was added and I even got it quilted!!!

I was so happy to get this finish in using LOTS of happy scraps!
Scrappy quilts are THE. BEST.

Does anyone else own stockings like these?
We have a few from Aunt Kathleen....
Made MANY years ago.
We pull them out every year...but there’s not enough!

I finally found a pattern that wasn’t too intimidating...
And so far....I’ve made three!

Two following the pattern...
And ONE with my own simple design.

I need SIX MORE in order to have one 
For all the kids and grandkids!

We’ll see how that goes.

This is a mashup of some recent
Hand-me-down fabrics.
Mostly 6 1/2” squares.

Some of the fabric was quite ugly.
Do YOU use ugly fabrics?

I feel sorry for those poor uglies.
It’s nice to slip them into scrappy quilts!

 I’m calling the block Disappearing squares.

Not a very catchy name. LOL!

More info about this block on my youtube channel.

I needed a quick THANK YOU gift this week.
My scraps and orphan blocks didn’t disappoint me!
These two potholders were so quick and easy!
Thank goodness for leftovers.

I love the signs of spring in my back yard.
What do you like most about spring?

I worked on a scrappy quilt this week.
Love the pink and green!

I used this old antique quilt as my inspiration.
See that poor old block in the upper left?

It was a good week.

Sewing with granddaughter was just one of the highlights.

Sewing scraps was another.

I used my MUCH LOVED corduroy quilt......

While we camped in the beautiful mountains.

It was a bit chilly....
All the QUILTS were used!!!
