Jodi of Pleasant Home is hosting a 2012 Sew Scraps Along...pop on over and see some amazing scrappy projects, tips on how to organize your scaps...gosh, now that's something I know I need help with.!
There's a few scrappy quilts on my list, that would be great for stash / scrap busting...like...Logcabin, Courthouse Steps, just to name two..
Yesterday I played a bit with a Scrappy Trip Around the World...I was inspired by my friend Lois's quilt (below) to use up some scraps and see what I finish up with.
Try as I might I just could not just add any fabric to my blocks...I've seen some beautiful scrappy TAW quilts using all sorts of fabric, but no not me... I started off with rose fabrics and felt I needed to stick with rose fabrics...I really need to break out and let go of wanting every thing to match and be of the same theme fabrics...so I had to also cut into some yardage, but it's still what I had on hand...
Lois (no blog) has made three of these picnic scrappy Trip Around the World quilts for family. she used a special sort of fabric for the backing so that the quilt could be laid out on grass and not have the grass stick to the backing...sorry Lois, I've forgotten again what the name of the fabric is, she said it worked a treat.
I really enjoyed making these four blocks...fun to do and was really surprised how quick they are to piece...
OK off to make some more blocks..
Have a great day..♥
