I would like to share some ideas with you for January 2022 scrap happy post. Those of you have scraps and just aren’t sure what to do with them, there are sew many great freebies out there just waiting to help you trim down that fat bin of scraps.
Martha Stewart gives a simple idea of two scrap squares with pinked edges sewn as a scented sache.
ILoveFabric gives a great idea to cover your switch plate cover.
Whatsmummyupto suggests making a fabric swatch memory match game. My mother made this for the grandchildren and they love it!
Recently Kimberly Jolly from Fat Quarter Shop announced a scrap house free pattern. She had other annoucements in her video. Check it out! I have my eye on this cute idea.
Now onto more scrappiness….
For those of you who do not know in this past month I finished piecing the 365 Quilt Block Challenge quilt, its now a top! Horah!
I am waiting for warmer weather to quilt it. This was a massive amount of fabric, and a huge chunk of time. I have developed a quilting motif. This will allow me to travel from block to block with minimal retracing of stitches. My intention besides friendly travel is a folk art look. If you are interested in a crude rough draft of a pattern click here for my pdf.
I also finished the postage stamp quilt.
My goal this week is to get some more sewn on the stars (UFO) quilt I am working.
And I am working a community service project for hospice. I am making placemats to donate to those who are transitioning from earth to heaven. This may or may not make a difference, but it will be a keepsake for the family after the passing. A set of two placemats takes about a yard of fabric. I am using three fabrics in each mat. I am using the pattern called Inside Out Mats. They are on sale at sewthankful.com for $6.99.
