I've said it before......I'll say it again.
ONE quilter's trash...
ANOTHER quilter's TREASURE!!!!
These tiny scraps came from a bag given to me
by a quilter who was overwhelmed with the mess.
Some of us like fabric folded neatly in thirds...or...fourths...etc...
Some of us like raggedy bags of jumbled scraps!!!!
Guess who I am???
I DO fold my fabric......most of the time.......
but, I also LOVE those nondescript bags of SCRAPS!!!!!
I sewed the scraps together after determining a loose color scheme.
I found a backing...
Just the right size!!.....in my cupboard.
I added some wool batting...leftover from a previous project.
I then basted the WHOLE thing with some
BIG. UGLY. STITCHES.
It will hold together nicely when I go to hand quilt!!!
Here are the orange embroidery flosses I found in my box of thread.
They're not all the same exact color.
You know what???
I'm not sure that matters!
I now have a new little "take along"
I think we may have been twins separated at birth! lol!!! We definitely like the same things and it seems like our brains work the same way!! Great job!!!ReplyDelete
You did a fantastic job with all those scraps! Well done! :)ReplyDelete
I love it... this is the very best kind of quilt, imho! Great job!ReplyDelete
I love the colors and the pattern in this quilt. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
you are so prolific.......
you always inspire me Beth :0)
When you quilt with floss how many strands do you use at a time?
It's beautiful, Beth! And it will be even better after you'e worked your hand-quilting magic!!ReplyDelete
Love scraps, too. Your quilts are so happy!ReplyDelete
Wow. You did good with those scraps! You are one talented lady.ReplyDelete
What a fun quilt with the pops of orange that came from a bag. I think the different orange flosses will be perfect.ReplyDelete
It looks great already! Love the color scheme.ReplyDelete
Kim: I typically use three strands of embroidery floss. ;)ReplyDelete
Beautiful - nothing more inspiring than a bag of scraps - the endless possiblities! And you chose perfectly!ReplyDelete
Great job on that scrap bag! Is that wonky logcabin block?ReplyDelete
Love it- it works for those colors!
I'm curious - how do you quilt with embroidery floss? Do you use one strand or more? Do you use an embroidery needle? Do you aim for a larger stitch? I'm interested in trying this.ReplyDelete
I love that orangey floss together! I think it will look great. I found a little box of squares from my late grandmother - I am so touched and pleased and. . . nervous. Not sure how I will fit them together. There's not enough for a quilt.ReplyDelete
