This weekend I loved Angie's post on her blog called Quilting on the Crescent and photos of the great 49 patch blocks she made using 1.5" squares. Each blocks was a single colour and as this month's chosen colour is blue, she made a blue block to add to her growing stash of 7" 49 Patch blocks.
My (Scrappy) Dreams Come True on Blue Bayou is the title of the post.
I thought I would attack my smaller scraps that were a large pile following my recent Sewing Room sort out. I had a wonderful time ironing scraps and cutting them into various sized squares, loads of 1.5", some 2" and 2.5".
I had just the tin for the 1.5" scraps (never cut this size before so that's a new category in my Scrap User's System).
Today I began tackling even smaller scraps which I have bagged according to colours. These bags are generally used when I am making Sun Bonnet Sue - type baby quilts. Haven't investigated them for a while and I was surprised to find loads of useful sized scraps. I cut up the yellow and pink scraps this afternoon and also found lots of strings to add to my Strings bag.
Yesterday I also found another piece of the cat motif fabric gifted a couple of years ago by a Patchwork Group member. I cut those up and added them to my Cat Quilt project bag.
15 of them so I think I probably have enough cat motifs for 3 baby quilts!
Off to iron those pink and yellow strings so I can put them away before I cook dinner.
