Scrap Attack Update


Twenty-Three and Counting!  The 2 1/2" strips in the scrap bin are just not going down.  As I dig for more colors, the pile looks bigger .... just like eating a salad .... as you dig and move around the lettuce, it looks huge!   It's just plain crazy, but I am already thinking about the next scrap attack.

And....the spares for the backing!

Scrap Control Update


Fifteen done!  Although I am usually working on several projects at once, there always seems to be something popping up.  These little blocks (finishes at 10"), are such a nice diversion.    

I also ended up with a few spares, so I decided to sew them together below -- maybe a few for the backing?

Scrap Control Update


And then there were NINE!  However, I have now pulled several long 2 1/2" strips from the scrap bin and cut coordinating 1 1/2" strips (LOL, that bin has a low inventory).

Pink and Teal Rainbow Blocks


Finishing up May Blocks in Pink and adding a few June Teal/turquoise.  


Then of course, I added them all to the wall -- mixing them up like a box of spilled crayons!

Quilt of Valor, Stars Over Scott


Back in 2011, I designed "Stars Over Scott" as a way to use up Half Square Triangles -- there are 168 HSTs in this top, nothing else.  The Top comes together easily and when a call comes in for an Emergency Quilt of Valor, it is a great "Go-To" pattern.


Finished Size:  72" X 84" (used 6 1/2" HSTs)

Every so often, I will search Google, or Pinterest and find a new "Stars Over Scott" someone else has made.  It doesn't matter what size HST you use, the results are always the same.  The above version is without a border .... however below is one I made in 2013, with borders because I used smaller HSTs.

Scrap Control Update and Quilt of Valor


The 2 1/2" strip scrap bin is still full .... as I have only added 3 more blocks. As soon as possible, I will pull out all of the long strips (brights only) and start matching them up into strip sets. 

The Quilt Of Valor below that has taken over the sewing room, was loaded on the long arm, basted, then quilted.  I used my pattern "Stars Over Scott", for a quick finish. Once the binding and label is done, it will be off to California for a young veteran, whose service we are so thankful for. 


The "Stars Over Scott", uses 6" (finished) half square triangles, and measures 72" X 84" -- since I used larger HSTs, I omitted the borders.  The great thing about this pattern, you can use any size HST you want to achieve the quilt size needed.
