|I have lots of strips - perhaps I'll make a Spider Web quilt for myself one of these days.|
|Probably my favorite hot drink of all time.|
I started a plaid flannel bear paw quilt for my step-father. Besides me and my husband, I think he's the only person in the family I haven't yet made a quilt for.
Yesterday, in between basketball games, I made it to my quilt guild meeting. While there, one of the lovely ladies surprised me with a big bag of scraps. Now, when you think bag of scraps, you think all crumpled up and thrown together, right? Not hers! First there were a ton of strips, mostly 2.5" and 4.5" strips, but some 2", 3", 3.5" and 4" strips, too. How handy! There were also some bigger scraps, mostly between a fat eighth and fat quarter in size. I took a photo, but forgot to upload it.
Whenever I'm the recipient of such generosity, I feel the need to share the wealth. So I put together two little packets of fabric scraps to share.
The first is this cute green with dancing pigs, along with some bright polka dot scraps. The dancing pig scraps are: 1 piece 8.5" X 42", 2 pieces 7" X 21" and 1 WOF piece that is 4.5" wide. The yellow has 3 pieces, 3" X 56" total, the green is 2 pieces, 15" X 6.5" each, and the blue is 2 pieces, 9.5" X 6.5" and 4 pieces 16.5" X 3.5".
The second is this sea shell fabric with two "neutrals" to go with it. The photo is a bit washed out, I apologize. Anyway, the seashells are 1 piece 10.5" 15, 1 piece WOF X 11", and one piece 11" X 26". For the two coordinating neutrals, there are 2 WOF X 4.5" strips of each, and 3 WOF X 2.5" strips of each.
