Welcome to another Scrap Basket Sunday where I link with Kim from Kim's Big Quilting Adventure and others who are digging deep through their scraps in the hope of finding some clear shelf space.
I found a basket of strips from a long ago quilt. Can't even remember which quilt I stitched. The edges were torn and not rotary blade cut so I know it was a while ago. Trimmed, cut 2 inch squares and now I have a bunch of 4-patch blocks. How I will use them I am not sure.
I have a little friend who is waging a mighty campaign to convince her parents to adopt a puppy. Even agreed to make her bed for 250 days. Saw the "Happy Puppies" quilt pattern in Quilter's World so I stitched this cute puppy pillow to keep on her bed just in case she forgets - not much chance of that. The puppy scraps came from a friends stash and I found the perfect dog print for the back.
Even the crows huddled together to try and keep dry in the very wet, rainy day we had yesterday. A perfect day for sewing.
In spite of great intentions to only use what was on the shelf I just had to visit the fabric store. I began with pieces of a yellow flower print from stash, some solid pink leftovers and a green bit. I went looking for a perfect yellow to match, could not find it but found a pink flower print identical to my yellow. No wonder they always smile when I cross the threshold at Atlantic Fabrics. I always leave $$$ behind.
Picked lilacs yesterday. Their fragrance now fills my house.
