It has been a busy week around here, but I did manage to make time to work on all three of the My Small World quilts! This week I made fifteen orange peel blocks, five for each of the three quilts. All of these blocks were made from 5" squares I had cut from scraps which made me very happy!
These green blocks will go in Nathanael's quilt...
...while these blue beauties will hang out in Lilli's version.
And for Emmy, whose favorite color is "rainbow", there's a lot of lovely color!
These blocks were quick and easy to make, thanks to a great book I read years ago...
First of all, if you don't already have this book, I highly recommend it - Lara has lots of fun projects in the book that all use her super-easy raw edge appliqué technique. Her trick? Using Mod-Podge for fabric to seal the back of the pieces to be appliquéd! The edges don't fray and can be appliquéd with a raw edge and yet will hold and look good. Much much easier and quicker than turned needle appliqué!
So that's what I've been working on scrappy this week - I'm almost through the required blocks that are due 11/15, so I'm still ahead of the game!
What have you been working on these days? Are you having fun playing in your scraps? Do tell!
