When I made my String Bean Quilt (Pat Sloan's Quilt Pattern) I had scraps and extra leftover fabric. I cut all my scraps into 2 inch squares. There were some charms left and there were a couple pieces of bright fabrics that I did not use in the String Bean Quilt that I had pulled out to use. Because it coordinated so well, I cut it into 2 inch squares too!
I started sewing the squares together, while I was sewing my I Spy Quilt (I haven't shared that here yet), I used them as leaders and enders, when chain piecing (sewing).
Then last week Sunday, I sewed for a couple hours and stitched tons of 4 patches.
Next I stitched them into a row of four 4 patches - that's 8 squares across and 2 down.
I made a fruit snack in the middle of the day. It looked like my String Bean Quilt.
Of course, food arranged on a plate --- Looks like a quilt to me!
Today for Sunday Sewing, I made more progress. I stitched together the rows to make ten 64 patch quilt blocks. I had no idea how many squares I had. I just kept sewing...
I received a rose on Friday. I placed it on my table, so I could enjoy it while I was sewing.
I displayed them on a white sheet. That's my design wall.
I kind of like it this layout.
Maybe a print fabric?
Maybe a purple fabric?
Maybe an orange fabric?
I am pretty sure, I do not like the white fabric.
Maybe I should put them right next to each other.
I like that too. Time to pause and think...
With ten blocks, I have an extra one. I could seam rip it and make another row on the bottom.
I like the squares next to each other, but I will try some colorful print fabrics tomorrow or next Sunday, as I ran out of daylight and my fun sewing time.
I love sewing on Sunday afternoons --- Sunday Scraps!
Do you sometimes, just sew for fun???
Enjoy your day!
