You know it's an old story with me. I finished my Blogger's BOM quilt top and started clearing up the leftover fabrics and scraps. I woke up 3 days later......
I started by sewing together the small squares, rectangles and strips into crumb blocks. It was only a few weeks ago that I said I was done with crumb blocks but I just can't throw out feedsack fabrics!
I had 20 blocks and first thought I'd make a little baby quilt but then I found a stack of old sugar sacks in my sash and I came up with this.
When finished it will be about 40" x 50". I know it probably looks just dirty to you but I think it's pretty cute with the sugar sack prints spread randomly around it.
Here you can see some of the prints a little clearer. This one will get some sort of simple quilting like parallel lines.
When I was picking up all of the tiny cut off bits I found one more block on the floor.
So I put it with the leftover sugar sack fabric and made this little round placemat. This little table is attached to my favorite chair. This is where I watch TV, do applique and eat about half of my meals. I decided that I should have some placemats for this little table and this is my first one. Now when I spill some of my morning smoothie I will only soil the mat.
Finally I took all of the tiny bits and fused them (with Mistyfuse) to an 18" square piece of old fabric. I quilted it all down with diagonal parallel lines. I haven't made anything with this yet but I think it's destined to become postcards or notecards.
The feedsack projects are officially done for the time being!
Why is it that these scrap projects excite me more than a brand new project?
