Playing with scraps-border progress

I have been slowly working on the border. At the moment I have a deadline quilt that I am working on. I will post about that when I can. I am trying to do the border 4-patches as leaders and enders. So, I am making some progress.


Thanks for stopping by.

Playing with scraps - middle done

Today I finished the middle portion of the scrap quilt. It measures 42½" x 56½".  I plan on doing a 4-patch border. Here is the progress of the quilt top.


I have to put it away for the moment. I have a big project that I will be working on.

Minnie Mouse - Baby Quilt

Today I finished the last of the 3 baby quilts on my list. Minnie Mouse is the little girl quilt that I had to make before May.

Here is the panel getting ready to be pressed. Isn't she cute.


This is the fabric that I am using for the back. The mom-to-be is totally nuts over camo. I chose a pink woodland themed print.


Here is the finished quilt.


Thanks for stopping by.

Chocolate Stars - QAL

I have been participating in TQPM's Chocolate Stars QAL. I just finished blocks 1-9 out of 12. I was indecisive on what fabrics I wanted to use. I decided to make this a scrappy quilt. I am using the left over fabric from my Halloween Spiderweb quilt. Here are the pictures of blocks 1-9.







You can find the information here about the Chocolate Stars  QAL.

Playing with scraps _Block measurements

I have had several requests about the measurements of this block.


Here are the measurements.
(4) white squares - 5¾"
(1) white square 3"
(4) scrappy strips 3" x 5¾"

Have fun playing with scraps.

February Goal_ Use up scraps

February will be the month that I will only be using scraps. I have only 3 quilts on my list to be worked on. Two of those quilts all I have to do is put borders on them. The other is the final baby quilt. Still waiting on the backing fabric.

I have pulled out scraps and started the first one on 1-27-2016. I know it was in January, but I was bored.  Remember that post? After I made a complete block I put it into my EQ7 and played with the arrangements. I do know that the finished size should be 72" x 72".
