Well, April isn't quite over yet, but since this is the last Wednesday, it's time to share what I've been working on this month for the Scrap Attack challenge!
Now, I will be the first to admit that I have a LOT of bonus HSTs - and while I was productive, it didn't make much much of a dent in the box. But it was a lot of fun, and I've got plenty more to play with when I get inspired!
This little bear quilt was the first thing I made with my bonus HSTs. These particular HSTs were from the quilt I made for my oldest granddaughter this year for Christmas, and I didn't have enough to complete the design as they were. Bummer! But I turned them into 3/4 triangle blocks by pairing each with a white square and turning it into two "new" HSTs - and then there were plenty!
And then I took some of the smallest bonus HSTs and turned them into seven pretty pincushions! There's something so satisfying about a pretty pile of pincushions - I'm always jealous of Crazy Mom Quilts and hers! These may or may not be giveaway items for Hands2Help this year....
And while that's all I made with my bonus HSTs this month, I did also do some more scrap sewing...
This quilt, made using the "Have Faith" block that Jamie Elbert shared with us for H2H, used up 50 10" squares and 25 stray fat quarters! I'll be sharing more pics of this on Friday.
So it's been a good month for scrappy sewing! I'm finding I like sewing with scraps more and more - which is a good thing because I'm still drowning in them!
I may keep working on bonus HSTs until the end of April, but I went ahead and drew my May goal...
...and this is what I drew out. I started to draw again, because I've already cut the denim scraps up, and turned them into the background for my Wedge Play quilt. But then I thought that this might be a great opportunity to finish that quilt - which has been languishing in a corner because I had other things that took priority! So that will be my goal for May - to finish that quilt (which is going to be gorgeous, I think!) and that will give me the push to get it done!
Thank you all for keeping me on track and accountable - it's really helping! Are you having fun playing with your scraps? Link up below to share what's going on in your scrappy world!
