Pink scraps

The Rainbow Scrappy Challenge colour for February was PINK!  
I had sufficient pre cut scraps to make 2 scrappy nine patch blocks and 11 leaf blocks.  Unfortunately all my leaf blocks face the same way....in March I will have to make sure I make more right facing leaf blocks...ugh this thinking when sewing does my head in!
I was definitely not in the mood for thinking when sewing yesterday, so I made four bodies (they need two sides) for my scrap chook pot holders.  This is the best pattern I have for using crumbs.  I love string blocks but don't like crumb blocks for some reason.  However I love these pot holders, they make great practical gifts.  I used a combination of pink and purple, as my pink palette is lacking.  However I did remedy that by buying some pink (with a thin stripe) yardage on sale....which is intended for a "girly" eye spy quilt.  I always end up making boy eye spy quilts...just want to even up the numbers!
Happy quilting Sue

  6. Hi Sue, so good to see you are making the most of being at home, totally jealous of how much sewing you've done! The house looks lovely you must feel very comfortable being "home", we drove past your old Street on Friday night and I waved and though of you x I even had a quick trip to Tricias last Wednesday, you might be pleased to know she is still in business even though you've left (ha ha!). I miss your happy face and our catch ups, it was my only chance to make sure I had done something sewing wise, otherwise I think thatJanome might give up the ghost with lack of use! Hope you've connected with some local sewists and are enjoying the reconnecting with your beloved family xxxx

  9. Great job using up those never ending pesky scraps. I was going to sew on Saturday and was too tired and knew I would just make mistake after mistake.
