Design Wall Monday

scraps made into  zigzag

Zigzag mixed with squares
These are left over fabrics from making this little alphabet quilt quite some time ago.  I kept most of the pairings of colors together from the original little quilt I made.  I used to receive a fabric collection from Keepsake quilting every month with 9" by 42" cuts....or a 1/4 yard cut.
I still have tons of these fabric yet uncut but I am trying to use them up.

So here is what is on my design wall today, go and see what everyone else has on their design wall over at Judy's.

Happy Sewing, Kim

Scraps or Trash?

A mountain of scraps or is it trash?

trickle down scraps and fun sites to visit

Gen X Quilters

I pulled these fabrics from my stash in November 2009 to start a new Bonnie Hunter mystery called  "Carolina Christmas.                                                           
  I quickly realized the yellow had to
go!   It was replaced with a nice bright white.  Yes, that made all the difference.

A year later the quilt was completed down to the binding with machine quilting done Debby Brown.                    Gen X Quilters
This spider web quilt was made from the selvages from the red and turquoise fabrics, again machine quilted by Debby Brown then donated to Quilts of Valor.

This little art quilt went to  Ami Simms Alzheimer's  fund raising efforts and brought in $45.00 for Alzheimer's research.  I pieced it from the left over salvage pieces of the spider web quilt and machine quilted it myself.

This little quilt went together in an afternoon but is not completed.....I used the back side of some of the turquoise fabric to give the effect of two solids fabrics........Ho Ho Ho  :0)

..and with a couple of extra blocks I made a few of these mug rugs for a Christmas gift.

This little house block was given to everyone that participated in Beth's neighborhood challenge.  It may get some unruly words added.

Which brings me to the latest use of the red and turquoise fabric....."Rhapsody in Bloom".  This pattern will be available in the March/April '11 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine  which will be  available soon.......
Have you seen the  Quiltmaker blog called Quilty Pleasures?

And have you seen this site yet?
Quilters Club of America?  It has tons of free stuff (or you can buy a premium package) where you can see more of the Scrap Squad quilts.

So is there any more turquoise and red fabric left in the scrap basket?

Happy Sewing,

Pick and Choose....still talking?

Everything but the kitchen sink is in this scrappy top. Directions on how to make a fabric book from a panel, scraps sent by Erin, reused pieces from my top swing your partner, and left over bits from various other Bonnie Hunter mysteries. Somehow it just doesn't feel finished. Lazy Gal pointed it out to me and I have the left the top out to study it a bit more.........maybe it will tell me what it wants.......I'm listening :0).
