Ans here they are all together. I have no idea how I set them together. I am not even making them a regular size. I am starting with 6.5 inch squares, sewing them in to half square triangles, then pinwheels, and trimming them up to 11 inches. I guess, if I decide on a regular pattern, it will have to be with 10 inch squares and I will have to trim them all down to 10.5. But, if I use just a simple sashing & cornerstone method, they are fine.
Thinking I will head back up and work on a few Harry Potter blocks and my Snap Shots QAL for this month.
I can't believe we had a school closure snow day here in the desert, at the end of February!
But, I loved it!
I dove into the scraps and made a couple of potholders with double layers of InsulBright. I like them thick!
I save my left over binding so I have a drawer of it all ready to go for things like this!
I have been wanting to make something with this "tag" method. So, I cut out my white fabric & batting in pillow size and went to town. I have been wanting to do this with my long-arm but started just on my sit-down machine. May try a baby quilt size on the long-arm in the future.
I made the backing out of white flannel and I happened to have a pillow form in the closet. I had a lot of fun! I really needed this day off, too!
Happy stitching this weekend!
Here is the second Scrappy Trip block-Bonnie Hunter style.
Here are the first few blocks for my other scrap quilt. They will be set on point with a narrow lattice so they will be a bit more tame than this.
Can you tell that I had strip sets of that pink, blue, green, and yellow left from another project? I promise, they won't all have that color scheme.
I have even done something I never have before- included Christmas fabrics in with everyday. I know Bonnie does it all the time.
Can't wait for the weekend so I can make some more progress.
It takes a lot of time to search through and cut up the scraps.
I also need to catch up on my Project of Doom/Harry Potter & Snapshots quilt along. I am going to be a busy little quilting diva!
Here is my first block for a Scrappy Trip quilt (see www.quiltville.blogspot.com ).
I have quilt projects coming out my ears but these scraps must be tamed. So, in addition to a scrappy half square triangle quilt, and some scrappy music note blocks, that I have planned, I have also started this and another scrap quilt from the Spring Quilts and More- A Pinch of This p. 59. I may make it larger though. Depends if one of my kids decides they want it. If not, it needs to be king size.
I am struggling with motivation on my Orca Bay. I love it, just is tedious and seems to be taking forever. Someone want to nudge me on it???
Here is my puppy. He will be 1 year old in May. Surprised I got him to stand still for this. He usually jumps at the camera. He just came home from the groomer. He is very rambunctious and I don't know if I will ever be able to train him to be a polite boy. For his sake, I hope so, because he is driving my husband and my kids crazy!
I stayed home today-fighting off a cold and I have a stiff neck, in addition to my knee killing me from overdoing it with a long run this weekend. Guess I will try to head in to work tomorrow and tough it out.
These blocks are addictive! I am having so much fun with them!
I was really excited to see the picture frame block since I was already planning on putting a few pictures in.
I really like the picture of the Hippogriff that I found online. I have a lot more planned with printable fabric.
Not much getting done on other projects. These are too much fun to focus on anything else.
I am making good progress on a crochet shawl. I have used almost 2 full skeins and am only about half way finished with it.
So glad it is a 3 day weekend!
Here is a block I made today. The quill was "fun" to get lined up, as you can see.
I got this one done today also. I am not sure why the tea cup is a little wonky but I am going to live with it.
Here is the block I worked on yesterday. Actually I was working on it from 2-4 am on Saturday morning. Couldn't sleep.
I am having a lot of fun with this quilt but it takes up a lot of quilting time.
I did make a little progress on my Orca Bay but nothing to show.
I am re-reading the first Harry Potter book- inspired to do so with the start of this quilt. When my husband say me reading it, he suggested we re-watch all the movies so we have watched the first four in the past week. My daughter was very excited to join us in watching them again!
I am not sure I can watch the Umbrage one again though...
