Do I have enough scraps?

Do I have a enough scraps? ๐Ÿ˜€ Well! As it happens, yes I do! Earlier this year I made a scrap quilt (see photo at bottom of this post) combining Amanda Jean Nyberg’s excellentย Scrap Vortex method with a leader-ender technique. Low and behold it turns out that making one scrap quilt doesn’t get anywhere near resolving the issue of overflowing scrap boxes… So, I embarked on another scrap quilt, this time using a pink colour scheme rather than blue.

The rest of this post is just a click away on my new New Every Morning blog page ๐Ÿ™‚ Please take a look and remember to use the subscribe button on the new page to ensure you continue to receive email notifications each time a post is published. Thank you!

Saturday Quilting Bring & Share (29)

Welcome to Saturday Quilting Bring & Share ๐Ÿ™‚ Take this opportunity to bring your latest project along to our virtual sewing day and share in the quilty conversations that have caught our interest. To join in just leave your comments in the box at the end of this post.

Hampshire Open Studios ended on Monday so I spent the start of this week clearing away the quilt display in my sewing room, through the corridor and into the kitchen. At the end of the week I transformed the sewing room into a guest room. Before my sewing machine and table were packed away I managed to finish the table runner I’ve called ‘Into the Woods’. I added fancy stitching to the crazy patchwork panels and machine stitched the binding in place.

To see photos of the completed table runner and check out the nuggets of quilty news I’m sharing this week click over to my new New Every Morning blog site. Please hit the subscribe button on the new site so future email notifications will lead you directly to the new blog site. Thank you!
