This has been a very busy month with company sleeping in the sewing room. Lots of good times but no time to sew. As soon as they left I pulled some neutrals and played catch up.
Pictured is a crayon block, two 36-patch blocks, seven string blocks and seven 16-patch blocks. Two supper scrappy pot holders made it into the picture. I have a plastic tub of very small scraps and skinny string strips. If it wasn't for sewing them onto strips of paper and making super scrappy pot holders, the tub would be overflowing. To see what others made with neutral scraps go here.
I enjoy sewing these little pincushions using this Fat Quarter Shop YouTube video clip. I gave a couple away to sewing buddies and the other four were donated to our annual quilt show boutique fundraiser.
Please remember to keep the people suffering in Texas and the Gulf area from Hurricane Harvey in your thoughts and prayers.
