Do any of you have trouble finding the extra time that scrap quilting takes? I love making scrap quilts, but I'll be the first to admit that it takes a good bit more time to make a scrap quilt than it does to make one from yardage!
I did manage to find some time this week to make a little progress on Lilli's annual quilt, Something Blue. (A big memory quilt commission job is eating up my sewing time!)
As you can see, I've added nine new blocks to the four I made last week. I would have made more but I ran out of the H blocks and need to make more!
I do think this is going to be a beautiful melange of blues - which is exactly what Lilli asked for (ok, she doesn't know the word "melange" but you know what I mean!) Hopefully by next week I'll have enough blocks made to be able to assemble a corner of the quilt!
I'm also thinking about raiding the green scrap bin to make a scrappy quilt for my green-loving grandson - I don't think there's anything that would make him happier than to be able to snuggle up under a totally green quilt!
And now for some inspiration - I found these amazing examples of scrappiness on Instagram this week!
Look at this beautiful scrappy trips quilt! I really love the bold colors in this one.
I know it's hard to see, but those are all pineapple blocks! After making 16 for my Long time Gone quilt, I know how many hours of work went into this quilt - and just imagine how many scraps it eats up!!
And this little quilt is such a great way to use up those small pieces of background neutrals - it makes a great statement!
So many scraps, so many quilts, so little time! What are you doing this week to tame your scrap monster?
