It's not often I have two posts in one week, but I'm excited to share some (quilting) news with you!
First, I have some finished UFO's!
The Scrappy Christmas Quilt was finished in April, but never got around taking photos
The stocking kit was given to me a couple of years ago (I never buy kits). This UFO was also one of the 'laying on the bench next to the table'.
This photo shows what was meant to be the back of the stockings. Aren't these too cute to be hidden on the back?! Instead of two, I made four!
Those of you who read my blog regularly, know I love making scrappy quilts. I'm a member of the Quiltsy Team on Etsy. The team has monthly challenges and for July/August: Scraps! Make anything from table runner to twin size quilt.
I have cut squares from leftover fabrics for years, separated Christmas from all other themes.
Not so much sorted on colors,
Sorted on colors, and one of each. I'm thinking a lap quilt, but it won't be a unique one (meaning: no duplicates!). I have several of most fabric, it has to be duplicates.
Fun seeing some of these fabrics again, and some I can't even remember what I made. So this is what will keep my fingers warm the coming days.
