Greetings scrap fabric lovers, and everyone else! I have been diligently working behind the scenes working my scraps and not posting much.
For those of you who are wondering how my Quilt Along is going, here is a picture of what I have accomplished so far. All of these blocks have not published yet, I am still working on those directions and posts. Here is #ScrappyChurnDashQAL
And, I am debating some logistics of how I finish this off. Stay tuned for that. For those of you who are here for the #ScrappyChurnDashQAL, please follow this link to all the patterns all linked on one page.
And as I sewed ahead, trying to beat the time continuum, between editing video content and writing instructions, and scaling photos for the blog, it left a bit of down time as I got ahead. The itch to sew was high.
After watching a video, I decided to follow instructions on construction of a HUGE 9 patch, made with 18 inch squares, which then got trimmed to a disappearing 9 patch. I did this matter 4 times, used up my stash of Kaffe fat quarters, and pleased that I figured out how to use them.
And then this weekend, I really had to urge to start purging my 2 inch squares. I sewed about 75 nine patches in a couple of evenings. I will eventually lay these out and sew them as a spinning 9 patch, based on an antique quilt picture I have saved on Pinterest.
And then, #Sewcialites2 started, and I thought to myself, I have so much fabric, why not join in. I have a bolt of black, and knew instantly I wanted to deviate from their light background to the dark side. Having fun playing with my various bright scraps too.
