October is almost over - can you believe it? But I have been (finally) doing some scrappy sewing, and I have progress to share! Nathanael's annual quilt is a super-scrappy version of Good Night Irene...
This is slightly more than two-thirds of the blocks I will need to make, and I'll also have to make the outer ring that is mostly white with little green pyramids to finish off the outside of the stars.
And for inspiration, here's a similar quilt, not exactly the same but with a similar look. This one is by Sandra of Musings of a Menopausal Melon and the block pattern is called Arkansas Crossroads. Both patterns are great for using up a lot of scraps!
And now, as seen on Instagram, here's some more inspiration...
Look at those beautiful brights! I love the way they glow against the gray background.
And isn't this a fun layout? I particularly like the "made fabric" in the neutral spiral. Nice touch!
This is on Angie's (@angienudge) bucket list - look at that beautiful English paper piecing! And what a great way to use up small and well-loved scraps...
And just because it's almost time to start
freaking out about Christmas working on fun projects with the grandkids, look at these adorable tree ornaments! Some homespun scraps, button, and cinnamon sticks - but I think they might be just as cute with bright Christmas fabric scraps and brighter buttons!
