I received a pile of scraps. Ok, so your thinking what’s new ,that poor dear always has a pile of scraps. And boy are you right!!
Last weekend an older gentleman from our church ,who to keep himself busy, cuts up fabric into 6″, 5″and 4″ that people give him. He does this to support a program that helps poor widows support herself and her family. The widows will receive these blocks with batting and backing, they then will make quilts to sell. To make a long story short… He brought me his scraps to put into quilt tops for Christian aid ministries. Of course.. I can’t say no. Here’s the big bag of scraps,which I dumped into this box.
The type of box… my daughter likes lightening McQueen.. so instead of wearing princess pull ups she wears these😁
I want to go through to sort the big pieces from the little . I made a few blocks like this to see if I cared for them. I believe it will make a nice top.
This is what I’m going to work on this week, the weather is to be hot for awhile now.. time to keep myself in except for early mornings.
I was messing around in my fabric closet,digging down under looking for an old briefcase that I wanted to put my art stuff in to keep it all in one place. I got a surprise…. the old case wasn’t empty. Guess what was in it!! No not a mouse nest!😜 an unfinished double wedding ring top.
There are two rows of four blocks to a row. It is in vintage fabric except for the navy blue . Plus there are lots of little pieces ready to be pieced.
I want to make this into a throw for at the end of a bed,then use the rest of the pieces in this top
I had the life scared out of me Saturday… I went out to do some watering , I have some small oak tree starts that needed a good soak, well.. when I first grabbed the hose to fill up some pails I thought heard a raspy noise .. looked around .. saw nothing ,continued to work ,when all of a sudden Wiggles ,our Jack Russell came unglued!!!! Not more than 3 feet away was a rattler!! Needless to say it’s history. Can’t say I care for a rattlesnake right outside in my front yard.
We had a storm pass through this evening ,the clouds were beautiful!
