It's time to share something we've done with scraps. After last month's post I made up a couple of postage stamp stars. Then the other day I sewed up one more 4" postage stamp block.
What really got me rolling was the call for blocks for a quilt drive for those whose homes were destroyed by Hurricane Florence.
I've been avoiding patchwork in an effort to give my left elbow a chance to heal. Precut scrap patches to the rescue! I was able to make up four of the prescribed 12" blocks out of my scrap tins.
Then I had some fun rearranging the four blocks...
This is one versatile block!
While I was working on these four blocks I sewed scrap strips together between seams. Then I just kept going...
I also sewed up some other scrap blocks I'd prepared last month.
Next thing I knew one of the gals from my local guild asked for a 12" crazy patch block for her friendship quilt. Perfect for scraps!
So in spite of not sewing for about three weeks I got a lot done in a few days!
