ScrapHappy Day in February
Today (very late today!) I'm joining Kate of Tales from Chiconia and a group of others who post what they're making with scraps (and only scraps). I'm pleased to have an honest-to-goodness scrap post today!
A week ago I began sewing light and pastel scraps for a quilt for my yet-to-arrive grandbaby girl, a color range agreed upon by my daughter and me. When I look at these blocks in real life I see sweetness and light but I'm not sure my camera's lens captured that effect.
Below are close-ups of a few of the blocks. They are 4½" square and will be 4" after sewn. This set of blocks below has too many pink stripes, fabrics I've decided I've used enough of for this quilt. Too many stripes is just too many!
a similar quilt with mostly cream fabrics a few years ago and it's become my absolute favorite.)
The blocks with sashing will finish at 9". For the size quilt I'm considering I'll need 80 4½" blocks and have 41 yet to sew. The baby's birth date is around the end of April. I guess I should get back to sewing!
