Scrap Control - Quick projects from B'Box

After finishing Kitchen Sink #2, I had several of the wedges left over.  I finished a little table topper and will quilt it later.  

Kitchen Sink #2 is complete except for one side of the binding -- hoping to share a picture on Friday.

Then, I dug a little deeper in my B'Box (Box of Blocks) and found 6 1/2" nine patches left over from a Southern Sky quilt made a few years ago. Alternated the nine patches with bright squares from backing left overs --- I'm sure there is another piece in my stash that will work for the border.  A quick child size quilt.

Fall Table Runner and Rainbow Blocks

"Glittered" Nine Patch in dark/sage greens are done -- Fall colors are my favorite, so I had several greens to choose from.  Looking forward to putting  the rainbow quilts together.

Also finished a small table runner for my daughter in law, Rachel, who just received a promotion at work.  I am so blessed to have this young lady in my life -- and she loves Fall colors too.

Show and Tell, Acappella Quilt

I am so excited to have received pictures of Sherry Langley's Acappella...she did an awesome job.  The fabric is so romantic along with the soft quilting design she chose.

Acappella was my first pattern published by Black Cat Creations, so I could not be more proud. 

 Follow along with Black Cat Creations Facebook Page and enjoy their Show and Tell from other designers.

Rainbow Challenge - Dark greens

Four Album Blocks added to the stack -- I will be playing with them later for a design, hopefully something unique.  This particular small block also looks good on point.

Love Handles - Top ready for quilting!

The "Love Handles" top is complete - I even weighed it....almost 2 pounds before batting/quilting!     The designer, Judy Dohrman (Black Cat Creations), used one fabric for her sashing and large border, however I made a  piano key border to use as much of the scraps as possible.    All of the dimensions are the same as the pattern - except I have gone totally scrappy.  

I am so happy with this colorful project -- Judy's blocks were so much fun to make.  Each block had its own unique personality.   My long arm has been busy lately with charity quilts, which means the Love Handles will need to wait her turn.

And....since this is the first Wednesday of the month, its time for sharing with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict (who keeps many of us accountable in the war against overflowing scrap buckets).

Rainbow Challenge - Dark Blue and QOV

The album blocks in dark blue are DARK!  They nest nicely with the red album blocks from a few months ago, as did the blocks below.  My B'Box (Box of Blocks) is starting to overflow; which is why I am starting to pull them out and play.

"Freedom Flying" will be donated as a Quilt of Valor:  The framing of the double HST has completely changed the look -- I tried twisting and alternating the double HST and still came back to them facing in all one direction.  I can see this representing military planes flying.

Love Handles - Scrap Attack Update

The blocks are sewn together and the first border is added.   The designer, Judy Dohrman (Black Cat Creations), used one fabric for her large border, however I'm choosing  to go with a piano key border.  The border will be the same size as the pattern.  All of the strip sets are done, so by next week, the top will be done.

While sewing the miles of strip sets, I pieced together "Quilts for Kids" using 6 1/2" squares.  I had enough fabric to make two of the colors above and a third is almost done.   This project has been adopted by our guild, using our own stash or kits provided by QFKs.  I then sew together 3 backs and load them on the long arm for quick quilting.
