My scrap projects

35 Comments

Hi dear friends! Scraps are super fun and I have several scrappy projects going on. One of them began just yesterday.

little squares

This idea has been in my mind long time and yesterday I took some little squares I had already cut and continued cutting more 1.5″ x 1.5″ tiny squares. Slowly arranging them … deciding about the colours … perhaps still changing my mind.

My portable design wall is too small. Have to make this in sections …

… or to wait to empty my big design wall …

… and have to cut more little squares. I won’t tell you yet what this is going to be, but you are welcome to share your guessings in the comments.

fabric forest

My Fabric Forest is going on very well. It has grown since this photo but as said the wall is now full of something else. I try to stay away from those little trees because if I start to make them, I can’t stop. Instead of sewing by hand those trees, I have been quilting by hand the ‘Splinters on Snow’. I hope to finish this soon because next quilt top is soon finished and ready for quilting.

I think those mouse steps on the snow look fun.

These photos are from today. Gorgeus sunny day again! Looks like we have few days cold and rain and then some sunny and warm days. Tomorrow perhaps comes rain again.

One day I was ripping some blocks. They had my favourite fabrics but didn’t work for the project I had tried them. So better rip them and use for something than have them forgotten in a box. I realized that the ripping wasn’t bad job to do at all. Have to check if I have any other orphan blocks that I could use for something else.

I start to have good amount strips and many great quilt ideas to use them. Just how to make up my mind?!

It’s second Tuesday of a month and time for ‘Scraptastic Tuesday’! I shall join the linky party!

Also I join my favourite weekly linky parties:
Fabric Tuesday, Sew Cute Tuesday, Linky Tuesday, Let’s be Social, Needle and Thread Thursday, Oh Scrap

    Your forest is magical and fun! I can see where it would be hard to stop sewing those wonderful tiny trees!

  5. Can’t wait to see what happens with those colorful squares! They look so pretty just sitting in that white tray. Your forest as always is awesome, as is the quilting on Splinters in the Snow.

  7. Aivan ihania minitilkkuja! Tulisiko siitä perhonen? Juuri nyt, kun on pimeää ja märkää, on ihana vain tuijotella noita pieniä värikkäitä kankaanpaloja. Hiirenpolut näyttää hyvältä. Siitä tulee oikean hyväntuuleen työ. Aurinkoista huomiseksi! Meillä on luvassa sadetta, mutta on tilkku- ja ranskankurssit!

    • Kiitos Marle! Enpa taida viela paljastaa. Aurinko paistelee viela mutta alkaa pilvistya. Ehdittiin kiva kavely Hannan kanssa ja Nerokin kavi lempipaikassaan jonne menee autolla (rakastaa autoajelua). Nyt voikin loppupaivan ommella vaikka satais. Voisinpa tulla tilkku- ja ranskan tunneille. x Teje

  11. Hi Teje
    I love your fabric forest, it is such a fun quilt, but of the two I really love mouse steps in the snow, something about it just hits a nerve.
