With winter comes a lot of scrapping...
or do I mean scrabbling?
Squabbling for sure!

bits and pieces

I dug out my Farm Girl Vintage quilt book this weekend
to begin a couple of table runners.
You will recall I made the 12 inch blocks for a quilt top...
yet to be quilted.
The table runners call for 6-inch blocks
 which means a lot of tiny pieces...
some as small as 3/4" square.
I love the scrappiness of it!
Is that a word?

I lie

I told a lie this week...
I needed to pick up a quilt at the quilter's
and I promised Mr. b that I only wanted
one yard of fabric for a table topper I was working on.
When I got there I discovered they had just got in
 Penny Royal fabrics by Emily Hayes.
10 yards later...
and a stack of Riley Blake "Farm Girl" fat quarters
I returned to the car labeled a fabricator.

bearly there

Mr. b was tossing out some old work shirts the other day.
They have a company logo on them making them obsolete.
I picked one out of the pile and decided to make a jumper for a granddaughter.
"Tildy Designs" by barb
For the facings and front heart I chose "bearly there"
by The Alexander Henry fabrics collection.
I stitched around the hem with a turtle stitch.
Okay...I need to check out that pile of shirts again.
Didn't forget baby.

UnPaper Towels

I bought a yard of diaper fabric to make nine cloth towels.
Do you go through paper towels like we do?
I like any excuse to use my serger.
If you are interested in making your own
you can find a lot of instructions for them on Pinterest.
