I May Have A Scrap Problem... But I'm Working On It! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Well, it has been a heck of a week - I not only got last Monday's list all finished, but I had time to play with scraps!  And it felt so good...

I started out with a mess of 1.5" wide strings...


Sewed them together jelly roll style....


Cut that long strip into a bunch of squares and arranged them on the wall...


Wasn't so sure about that look (or size) so I bet you can guess what I did with them next....


And here's what's on my design wall now!  It's not ...

Make-A-List Monday - A Productive Week! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Wow, last week was very productive!  I guess I just need to know I have a very limited amount of time and lots to do to get motivated.  So without further ado, here's last week's list and what I did...

1.  Baste and quilt the special project quilt.
Done!  It's all ready to go, and I'll share more about this one after it is gifted.


2.  Make a back for the reindeer quilt.
Done!  And I managed to make it using fabrics I already had on hand - win/win!


3.  Make a back for ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... So Many Pretties!! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

I haven't had much time for scrap sewing this week (although I have made a bunch of scraps to add to the stash!) but I did find some seriously great inspiration!  So I'll share that with you, and see if it inspires you as well...

How about this fabulous orphan block quilt?


And just think how many scraps this design would use up (and my blue scrap bin is overflowing...)


I love the simplicity of a two-color quilt, and this one is so pretty!


Honestly, I'm not sure whether I like the quilt top or ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Herd of Dinos, And Other Random Stuff from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

It's Friday again!!!  And October - can you believe it?  This year seems to have flown by, and my favorite season has arrived.  That's definitely whoop-worthy!  And since it's Friday, it's time for us to get our whoop-whoop on, so let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

This week I worked on Nathanael's annual quilt, and I'm pleased to introduce you to...

Trixie the Triceratops, and...

her brother, Toto the Triceratops!  These two rounded out the whole gang, and I was able to put  all the blocks up on the design wall to see how they ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... Preparations, and a Quilt-y Need! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

It's been an interesting week already, but I'm happy to say that I have had time to play with my scraps!  I spent part of the day today repurposing some storage...


 and sorting out some of my strings....


...in preparation for next January's tutorial series, which will be called String Therapy!  Many thanks to Chantal for the idea for the name, which seems perfect for us all right now.  I don't know about you, but I need a little therapy some days!

I still have lots of strings to sort into the storage, but ...
