A "Lil" Bit Scrappy and A Whole Lotta Crazy!

It's time to start whittling down the scrap bins, and I'm in a mood...
I don't usually work with inset seams, but they were calling my name.
While they are not perfect by far...
I'm satisfied with the results, but seriously...
I might have been able to piece an entire quilt in the time it took for these guys!
 They are only 9" blocks, and that's a lot of piecing for something that small.
It was a lesson in patience for sure.
Oh and that starch, is definitely your friend!
I'd love to say that those scrap bins are dwindling away, but at this rate, it's just not happening.
What's you weekend looked like?

til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'


  1. I know exactly what you mean about scraps not dwindling away - I've been working for nearly three weeks on my sewing room and it looks the same as it did when I started, despite my getting rid of a ton of stuff. I swear the rest is expanding when I'm asleep!

  2. Joan, did you do this block by hand or by machine? It is beautiful! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous work. Right now I don't have that patience and admire yours.

  3. Too tiny for me so well done to you!
    Love the idea of attacking scrap bins - they lead to distractions, too.


Thanks for stopping by today. Your comments really do make me day!
