I decided to join in the Scrap Vortex QAL with Amanda Jean over at Crazy Mom Quilts. My biggest problem going in was that I had a minimal scrap pile. I had gotten rid of all of my scraps before I moved in February.
These are my small scraps
and this is my box of longer scraps.
I did find a bag of scraps from a friend who dropped them on me before she moved that I have incorporated into mine.
I did find that I have mostly scraps that are from 2 1/2 in strips my favorite size of fabric to work with so my pieces are going to be a little large. This is where I started. I took a piece from the smaller box and a piece from the bigger box without looking and sewed them together
Trimmed them down, and sub cut some
and ended up with this wall full for my week one. We are in week two so I need to go back and start putting these together before week 3 starts on Wednesday.
I also managed to loom a hat for Angel Snugs to send to a pediatric oncology unit
and to whip up a couple of knitted wash clothes for their annual fund raiser.
On to a non quilt related note. Nettie's sister got released from medical hold and we should have her come to live with us mid July. We are having lots of company coming in the next 3 weeks and felt it would be better for her to come after the commotion has died down. She is a very timid dog and we want her to start off in her forever home on a positive note. She will be coming for at least one play date before her full time arrival.
