Using my scraps

There were fat-quarters in my scrap basket that had pieces cut from them.  I cut rectangles 5" x 2.5" and this is what happened.  It is a large single bed quilt with a white print border.  The backing will be solid pink, a large piece in my stash.  I have made 2 bags  from the leftovers, and still the basket is overflowing.

I spy with a difference

This is  an "I spy" with a difference.  There are flaps with pictures underneath that match the blocks without flaps.

It is a wall-hanging as it has a white background.


Here is my latest effort.  Unfortunately I went "off with the fairies" while I was trimming the large blocks  and cut the wrong side of the block. This only happened once, thankfully. The magazine is QuiltTrends, August 2014.  The original pattern was in grey and yellow with striped damask.

So, What's next

It has been a long time since I last posted here,  what  with camera problems or missing  cords.   I bought a new camera for my birthday.  No excuses now.

Over the Christmas break I have been quite busy making quilts and bags and finishing off a few runners.
This afternoon I completed two bags and found fabric for more.  There are two quilts ready to go to the quilter.  There is a third almost complete however I need a trip to  Spotlight for some haberdashery  items before I can finish it.  Another quilt is slowly growing on my design wall but it needs more fabric (of course).

By the way, I did finish the Storm at Sea quilt, I gave it to my sister for her birthday last October. She was quite impressed.  I can't find the photo for it yet, I may have to ask her to take a pic for me.
It is 60" square.
