Anyway, on to the quilty stuff. I spent yesterday morning procrastinating, and doing nothing very much. After lunch I got my backside into gear and started producing. In true Loulee style I've uploaded my pictures in reverse order, so these first pics are from the evenings efforts.
I had a sort through my scrap basket and was wondering what I could use all these bits for, I thought about chopping them all into squares as I've seen some of you out there in blogland do.
Then I thought if I do that I can only ever make scrappy square or triangle based quilts, so I started to play about and came up with these!
The white background squares were a find next door in the Hospice shop. Two packs of 12 mens white cotton handkerchiefs. Just great I thought. The piece of pink lying underneath is auditioning as sashing, there's just enough for that, I'll have to find something else for borders though and I've already sorted some strips for binding. Maybe it doesn't need a border? I'll see how it feels later once I've got it all together. There is still loads in the scrap basket, and I even managed to keep some useable sized scraps from these scraps! LOL
Now for the bit Maxine is not allowed to see. LOL It's her birthday soon, and this little number will be on it's way to her later today.
I took two fat quarters, and chopped them around a bit. Added a little medium weight interfacing and some rickrack.And came up with a little reversible grocery / book bag.
To be honest it wouldn't hold much in the way of groceries, so I think I'll call it a book bag.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself, I may make some more of these and experiment with a larger size.
I'm outta here, got to go to the post office.
Have a great day.
