Midweek Makers #59

Time to show off at Midweek Makers! Come share your projects!



As for me, I've got the other two RSC17 quilts ready for quilting,


and the bag of aqua scraps, for February, sorted.


I've dreaded opening this bag, as there are a ton of diamonds and odd triangle shapes in this bunch. Inspiration has yet to strike, and (gasp!) I may decide to sacrifice parts of these pieces to the circular file, for peace of mind. We'll see.

Speaking of inspiration, did everyone check out the beautiful quilt by Barb at Mountain Quilt Works?

                                       

She participated in a challenge, Tuned into Texture, finding inspiration from the wild. If you haven't already, check out her 'wild' pictures, and the details of this quilt. Truly an amazing, inspirational quilt! Fantastic job, Barb - be sure to grab a 'Featured' button!

And if you have a Valentine or heart project, you can share that too, on yesterday's Valentine's Linky Parade.

Have a great time!

  1. Why not sew some of the other scraps to the aqua diamonds, then square them up. Or use them for making a large pumpkin seeds applique shape. There's a book called Scrap Applique Playground by Kay Mackenzie that features the scrap applique method. It makes for a very interesting effect. Looking forward to seeing what you create with your lovely pile of scraps.

  2. Susan - thanks for featuring my quilt! It was certainly fun to make. Don't toss those scraps! Do a give-away - I'm sure someone would be thrilled to play with all that scrappy goodness :)

  4. I am in awe of your scraps! I never seem to amass any scraps but they look like so much fun to play with.

  5. I do think scraps multiply without our help sometimes...maybe like little rabbits :) That sure is a pretty pile of turquoise you have on your table.

  8. Hum, Susan, you do realize that the RSC17 doesn't mean you have to finish a whole quilt every month, right? And we're only half way through the month. You're making the rest of us look like slackers.

  9. That circular file is sometimes very tempting to me, and then the frugal side of me prevents it. I've just found boxes to sort my small scraps by color so we'll see what I save and what I don't! Thanks for hosting the link-up.
