I May Have A Scrap Problem... Success! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

This being the time of year when we are made more aware of things to be thankful for, I can honestly say this year that I am grateful for scraps!  I never thought I would be able to say that, and there are times (particularly at church) when my scrap experience can become a little bit overwhelming, but I am learning to embrace the scrap!  


That being said, I'm happy to say that I took some time today and made all thirty-six Square In A Square blocks for my Gypsy Wife quilt!!


This was the first batch ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... Pillow Cover Tutorial! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Well, better late than never - I didn't get my tutorial written in time to post this earlier (I actually had to make another pillow cover to take some pictures!) but it's done now!  First, though, let me share with you this week's blocks for the Gypsy Wife quilt...


This block is called Old Maid's Puzzle, and it's the last of the "named" blocks in the book.  As before, these blocks are made out of Kate Spain's Latitude batiks, and I love the colors!  The rest of the blocks are designated as "filler ...

I May Have a Scrap Problem... Not Getting Much Better! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Wow, it has been a week!  I had so many commitments, and so many other things going on, that I didn't get much done on the scrap sewing front.  Boo!




I did, however, get my Gypsy Wife block for this week done!  This block is called Indian Hatchet, and the one on the left is for my GW quilt.  The one on the right is for the Michael Miller Friendship Quilt project, and is made from fabrics provided by Michael Miller Fabrics at QuiltCon.  The fabrics have been sitting on my worktable since February and it feels ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... A Little Stashbusting! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It's been a busy week!  I have to say, I've been doing more stash busting than scrap sewing this week, because of the "A Heart For Texas" pillowcase drive.  I've made more than a few pillowcase kits...



This isn't even all of them - I've put together 47 kits so far, some of which have been sewn up and others which will be sewn this Wednesday and Saturday.  Each one takes about a yard of fabric, so they're eating up the smaller pieces of fabric that have been languishing in my stash!  It ...
