Scraps, scraps ...

Last time I shared picture of the front and today I share the pic of the other side. These are leftovers from # blocks.

And here is sneak peak of another scrappy project in progress. These are the little triangles from Elephant parade blocks. I just fused them onto fusible interfacing.

Plus here is another two blocks in prep stage. The frog and turtle which means MORE SCRAPS!
Oh dear, never ending story :)

Thankful Thursday

This week I'm thankful for your support, nice comments and your patience! I'm sorry I haven't replied to your comments yet but I'll get there.

Here is sneak peak of my scrappy project. Don't get fooled by the pic. It's approximately 20x15cm just perfect size to make .....

Also some of you were curious what do I keep in those rainbow vinyl pouches. All kinds of stuff. Mostly buttons, ribbons, hardware for bag making, needles and other small accessories.

BTW you can find the tutorial here.

Q1 - Envelope organizer

First project from my FAL Q1 list is finished (1/7). When I'm looking at he pictures I think I should have used B&W binding instead. As I didn't measure so well the background fabric is not very visible.

Anyway I like this B&W combo and with all these dots I used it fits perfectly for this month Le Challenge theme. The reason why I used white binding is because it fits well on the wall.

The back is plain white. I only quilted one way.

I have also quilted around each envelope. Plus I top stitched the top edge of the pocket which you can not see on my crappy pics.

I almost forgot I made it my February goal of ALYoF as well.

Elephant parade

Have you seen the elephants everywhere? Oh yes, there is Elephant parade QAL and you don't want to miss it!

Sew Fresh Quilts

I'm going scrappy. I knew I wanted to make some elephants. I love grey but my daughter not so much so she asked me to do them colorful instead.

I used these batiks in number of projects last year and there are only last few bits. Probably just enough for an A side of bed side wall hanging.

Once you have all the pieces cut, the piecing goes pretty quickly.

That is mom and dad plus the baby elephants.

I'm feeling pretty well making these blocks on time so here comes little challenge. Am I going to be able to use those tiny bits for something? Stay tuned!

ALYoF - February goal

Before I introduce you to my February goal, please meet my delayed January goal. Scrappy Log cabins wall hanging.

I added one square to one side. It looks a bit wonky but I hope the quilting will take care of it.

And two little ones on the other side. It no longer fits on my wall. Not sure if I'll be making it any wider. I only have few scraps left. We'll see.

Let's move on into February though. I'm going with Envelope organizer as my ALYoF goal.

I only need two envelopes which sounds quite doable. I'm using B&W fabrics and pattern from Patchwork, Please! book.

That is another paper pieced project. Let's party over @ Quilt Art Design
Maybe I should consider this as my Le Challenge project as well since the theme is DOTS! Are you playing along?
