ScrapHappy # April

It’s 15th April, time for some ScrapHappy fun with Kate in Australia, Gun in Sweden and a whole group of crafting people world wide!  Other members of the group, who don’t necessarily post each month, being:

Titti, Heléne, Eva, Sue, Nanette, Lynn, Lynda,
Birthe, Turid, Susan, Cathy, Debbierose, Tracy, Jill, Claire, Jan, Karen,
Moira, Sandra, Linda, Chris Nancy and Alys.

The idea behind ScrapHappy is to do some crafting sometime during the month, using only scraps.  It can be any kind of crafting, and doesn’t even need to be a finished project.

For this month I played around with some of my patchwork fabrics, and I put together a simple block.

This has actually finished at 13” square but I’ll probably trim 1/8” off all around at some point because I have added this pretty block to a small pile of other blocks I have in my stash

The plan, one day, being to have enough blocks to make a quilt.  But it’s really a coincidence if all blocks blend in with each other more or less . . . or simply proof that I do lots of sewing with turquoises and teals.

  1. Hurray for scrappy quilts! A whole quilt made from ‘invisible’ fabric is such a treat, it’s like it appears from nowhere. Looking forward to see what else materialises from your scrap bags 🙂

  2. Love those colors! I have a scrap afghan I am crocheting , and I confess to choosing what socks to knit next based on what color I think the scrap blanket could use!

  3. I love your blocks! Just think of all the nice things we can do, just using scraps! Don´t ever through away fabrics, no matter how small the pieces are 🙂 !!!!!
