Saturday: June 13.2020 I was born.. oops sorry, that's David Copperfield.. LOL I have completed simple grid quilting on 4 of 6 basted quilts. I like to play on Saturdays, and often use it for desperately needed mental health SEWING time. So I dug out a bin of 16 patch blocks, added to the snowballed blocks in that same bin and threw this up on my new Design Wall Model #5290.. (lol) I have enough blocks for another top. I make blocks like this with my scrap bins of cut sizes when I'm bored. Then on other days when I'm bored I throw them together into a quilt top. And thanks to my neighbor Karen who is not a quilter, who made a Costco run and was willing to pick up some coffee for me. I'm trying to convert her into one of "US".. lol
Here's hoping YOUR Saturday June 13th is a fun as mine. Made some homemade Beef-Brocolli and now eating my homemade Chocolate Malt ice cream on top of an ice cream vanilla sandwich with homemade Hot Fudge and chopped walnuts. LIFE is good at my place today. Good weather too. HUGS all around.
I really like your scrappy quilt....some times I wish my scrap bin had so many colors.
I am "aided and abetted" by friends with grocery sacks.. LOL. they toss 2.5" or larger pieces in bags as they sew along. They know I will find a use for what they don't use. AND when I'm finished with my trimmings, they go in my decorator cloth pillowcase lined trash can, that ends up at another friends home to make into dog beds.
Just tell folks you want their scraps over a certain size and see what happens.
Nice idea. A controlled scrappy quilt. I'm trying to use up my scraps. (May not live long enough) I keep making more. I just joined the Mystery quilt by Joy on FB. I've done the 4 patches and started on the strip blocks at a small quilt retreat this weekend. Only 5 of us up in Pinetop, AZ. Also took with me some "crossing canoe" blocks that I cut on an Accuquilt machine that my daughter got me for Christmas. I never would have done this if I had to cut them myself. The fabric I had only made 17 blocks. I'm going to finish them into a bed runner for our King-size bed.
Also added a gold narrow border to the Schooch Over quilt that I thought needed to be brightened up a little.
I like your scrappy...
Hurrah for nice neighbors...
we had pork chops with Hawaiian pineapple sauce (made in the InstantPot) and flourless brownies topped with cream cheese and crystallized orange powder...Life is good here too!
ohh...sounds like fun! like those crossing canoes - you could alternate the blocks with a different block if you want a bigger quilt...
like the gold border on the scooch quilt
I'm glad you had such a good day with yummy food and great quilting. I love your scrappy quilt!
Love your two quilts! I've always admired the crossing canoes and yours is beautiful!
Love your 16 patches with snowballs! Very bright, fun and cheerfull.
