In True Scrappy Fashion

I have been testing a pattern and a technique recently and found that using scraps to do this is quite fun.

The doll is a pattern from Shiny Happy World. And the mini postage stamp quilt is done from a tutorial by Patchwork Posse. Very fun and fast.

Strip Tube Class


I taught my first sewing / quilting class on Saturday. It was lots of fun. Above and below are samples of how my group created thier blocks.

It was really fun to see how everyone created their blocks after the magic of cutting the tube.

Mom has been hard at work doing snowmen for a flannel raggy quilt she is creating.

Here is the collection so far.

The "T" Block


I saw this idea demoed on Missouri Star Quilt Co. video with Jenny using a layer cake.

Since I did not have a layer cake handy, I made this sample with leftover charm squares and some neutral yardage.

Had to watch the video several times to find the apot where she says place the top neutral strip with larger piece to the left. (note the red check fabric block)

I may do the next baby quilt this way with charm squares.

Another Block Idea - Five Minute


Here is another block idea I found. It is one of the Five Minute blocks that creates a 3D flying goose.

I tested it with some leftover charm squares. I plan to make some more and do another table mat.

This is the March Coffee Club project called Eggs Benedict. I chose my favorite colors for this one and kept it simple with just two color choices.

I could see this one as reallty scrappy or even in an I Spy project.

The blocks are really fast to put together too.
