Scrappy Monday Rambling
March 28, 2011 § 11 Comments
I never know how often to blog. I could easily let the weeks slip by, thinking that my every day sewing is really not that interesting. That it’s really only the big finishes or detailed tutorials that interest everyone. Then again, I like reading about what everyone else is up to. So… how about a little Scrappy Monday Rambling? And… how wouldyou categorize a post like this? I just dumped it under quilting. But that’s about 80-90% of my blogging anyway.
My doll quilt (above) for the Doll Quilt Swap is finally finished and flying it’s way to it’s new home this week. I can’t say too much about where my idea came from until it reaches it’s destination. But I did use a new product to quilt it with that I plan on blogging about in the near future. I just need to gather some more photos of it in use so I can give you a proper review. Stay tuned for more information on that subject.
And while I was waiting for my computer to download some free trial software, I started digging around in my stash and found some scraps that were given to me in a previous swap. Then I found some of my own scraps and a few fat quarters that seemed to go rather nicely with the swappy scraps. All together here, they are looking like a nice possibility for some giant wagon wheel blocks. Lynn over at Lily’s Quilts is hosting a quilt-along (Flickr group) and I’ve been so tempted to start yet another project. Since it involves mostly scraps, it doesn’t really count, right? Just like my half-square triangle zig-zag project doesn’t really count either…
And on a completely random note, I just discovered that pinning on the underside seems to produce less slippage when I’m sewing over the pins. Yes, I sew over the pins where seams intersect. Try it and let me know if it’s true for you as well!
More randomness… All of the above projects were (or are) produced mainly from scraps. Can you tell that not only my projects are scrappy, but my blogging is becoming scrappy as well? A little bit of this… a little bit of that…
