So many of my quilts are scrappy quilts – I like to make use of the tiniest of pieces although I am not as obsessed with saving those tiniest of pieces any more, a little more gets tossed in the trash now compared to what I used to save – by that I mean I might have actually been able to save a few more 1.5 inch squares than I used to LOL.
yesterday I got busy on the Scrappy Stars and made good progress. I showed 11 stars in the last photo of them laid out and now there are 18 of them!
One more Scrappy Basket – these squares are 6 inch squares – the pattern called for 5.5 I think but I wanted a little more room to work – I might cut them down to 5.5 or I might just leave them as is.
You haven’t seen this one for awhile – Williamsburg Beauty – it has been neglected once again so I made last evening while watching the news to applique a couple more diamonds in place – 2 sides done! 2 sides left to do. This one will be worked on this week I think as I should be able to get the applique done in a week or so if I just put my mind to it- then 2 or 3 more borders that will be plain and it will be ready to quilt. I will be working on some of this applique today for Kathy’s Quilts: Slow Sunday Stitching and Love Laugh Quilt.
Another major Scrappy Quilt! The Postage Stamp quilt has been rolled down and quilting has begun on the little pieces. I am linking to Quilting is More Fun than Housework – she wants to see what you do with your scraps!
Zig Zag through the squares and a line down the middle of the white pieces – the end pieces you will notice are not all even – they are wonky so that I could square these up to 10 inches I think it was. That is ok, there will be a line up the middle no matter what size they are.
Thank you to all who have ordered through my links to Craftsy and Accuquilt – I surely do appreciate it and I totally understand that not everyone can order or wishes to order that is why I try to always put the advertisement at the bottom of the post that way anyone not interested can just stop reading here— Clicking on my link cost you nothing but gives me a little bit of a commission if something is purchased – my quilt supply money – thanks. There is no need to apologize to me as some of you have done in private email – we all have different budgets and favorite places to shop — totally understand – due to a budget is why I do this advertising!
