Wow - only about ten days until Christmas, and it's busy busy busy around my house! But I can multi-task while I eat leftovers for lunch and share what I've been working on and what I've seen while out and about this week!
First of all, I managed to finish all three of the beach blankets made from my leftover t-shirt backs!
And when I was cleaning off my sewing table this morning to start on a new project, I found four little lonely strips all cut and pressed to be made into Scandinavian Star ornaments, so I put one more together just for me!
Coin quilts are a great way to use up scrappy rectangles, and I love the narrow gray strips and occasional gray rectangles in this version!
Oh my goodness, isn't this amazing??? So simple - rectangles twice as long as they are wide make up this quilt. It looks complicated, but it's really a simple block!
Kristy, this quilt makes my heart sing! I love the colors, the text prints, all the scrappy little strips - perfect!!!
This quilt isn't billed as a scrappy quilt, but I can totally envision it that way, can't you? All those low volume scraps hanging out in your tubs are just screaming to be used in something this pretty!
I love the addition of the friendship stars in this scrappy quilt - what a perfect gift for a housewarming!
And one final Christmas quilt to round it out! This would be a great way to make a serious dent in my Box O' Shame - the Christmas fabric scraps that have been hanging around for years and years!
And speaking of Christmas, is there any interest in having another 12 Days of Christmas in July blog hop? Specifically, would YOU be interested in being one of the stops on the hop? Now's the time to start thinking about it, while Christmas is on the brain and all those projects you wish you had time to do are still fresh in your imagination. So speak up if you want to be a stop, or even if you just want to enjoy it again this year! If there's enough interest, I'll start pulling it together again.
Keep plugging away at those scraps - you are making a dent, I know it!!
