A Scattered Week

I've been out and about, at home, then away again, etc., without a stretch of time to devote to much.  Still, I've been able to work on two quilts.

I've been cutting these triangles and squares... make more of these side setting triangles for this quilt.
I also cut all the green strips and white squares to make the stars in the center.  Some are sewn but not many.  Some quilt blocks have many pieces and seams in their creation.

I'm finally nearly finished hand quilting the first corner (only!) of this quilt.  Two sides and three corners to go.  I'm a slow quilter.  At first I thought the brown quilting thread might be too dark.  Now I think it could have been darker.

This past Saturday there was a Zero Landfill event nearby.  Design and interior decorating companies donate their unwanted samples and deliver them to a specific location where educators, artists, or anyone else who knows about the event can look through them and take what they want. 

I found a sample book of 50/50 linen/cotton fabric in a fun range of colors.  These are a few.  I couldn't leave them behind. 
Each sample has enough usable fabric to make two 3" squares.  The fabric is about the same thickness as several thrift store cotton/linen shirts I have.  I can't spend much time on them at the moment other than imagine the possibilities. 

That's been my week.

Hey, there's still time to link up to Quilty Inspiration #3 -- until Thursday evening.  It's a new, small, little-known link-up for sharing an inspiration for a quilt:  colors, fabric, photograph, painting, another quilt, etc.  If that's interesting to you, please link a post.

I hope you having a great week!

Linking to WOW at Esther's Blog, WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced, and Let's Bee Social #94 at Sew Fresh Quilts.  Thanks for hosting, ladies.

  1. I love the idea behind zero landfill, how useful for the local community! Those colours you found are great, I'm sure you'll find a good use for them :)
