Scrap Happy in May

Like so many other creatives during these unusual times it's been a struggle for me to accomplish much of anything lately. Which is weird because I'm normally in a sort of stay-at-home order anyway due to my chemical sensitivities. Misery loves company perhaps? In any case, I don't have as much to share for this Scrap Happy Day as I'd like. Just more blocks for the Parts Department.

Two Lego blocks at the top will finish at 12," six Hole in the Barn Door blocks that will be 6" finished, and one of my 6" Sticks blocks.

I do like fussy cutting whenever I can. 😉

I especially like the idea of the recipient of the eventual quilt finding these little surprises as they live with the quilt.

The little needlebook cover I showed in my last post would also qualify for Scrap Happy Day as it began with a scrap of batting and strips that were too narrow for me to cut regular patches from.

Most of the threads I'm embroidering with are new to me however. There's quite a variety of scrap materials being put to good use around the world. Kate and Gun host this particular showcase every month on the 15th. Maybe you'll find some inspiration as you make the tour!

  1. So admire the jewel tones of your quilt. It reminds me of "I spy with my little eye..."

  2. I wonder if my grandkid, who loves LEGOs would recognize a lego block. 🥴

  3. I rather like the layout of those blocks on your design wall. No particular rhyme or reason, it looks like a train of thought skipping from one idea to the next. Just love that little bird perched on the edge of the birdbath!

  4. I do love a churn dash block for showing off a lovely, fussy cut piece of fabric. The bird on the bird bath is adorable.
