I have been playing with the pieces I showed last Saturday (to see them click here). I had enough pieces to make 2 baby quilts and for some unknown reason there is no photo on my camera of the tops?! You'll have to trust me when I say that I am now quilting them. Here is a photo of one of them all pin basted and ready to quilt. I'll use a white thread in the bobbin and a pink thread on top. I decided to quilt one with straight lines and the other with free motion loops so I don't get bored!
I also dug out some white scraps and have given into the temptation to make some 36 patch blocks from Crazy Mom's Quilt Along. Initially I was able to resist the quilt along because I don't have many 2 1/2" strips I could use. But then I saw Vivian's blogpost about using 2" strips...and I have a lot of those.
Resistance is futile!
I love my first 4 blocks and am delighted with the scraps I am using up. Each block is using a different white and each of the coloured floral fabrics are scraps from other projects....top left is the border/binding fabric from this recently finished UFO, top right is the border/binding for this auctioned quilt, bottom right is made from leftover orphan charm squares, and bottom right was leftover from the baby quilts.
So although I am not happy that I have started yet another project (LOL) I am delighted with how many scraps this project will clear out. To see what other quilters are making with their scraps, hop over to So Scrappy.
