Sentimental Scraps Coming Along

Life has been a little hectic, but calming down some.  I have been working on my Sentimental Scraps project. Thought I would take a few pictures to show that I am getting some projects going.

A Bucket of Strips

This is my “Bucket of Strips”  getting smaller

Light Strips

The Light Strips are thinning out – Need more!

Future 9 Patches

Here are the “Future 9 Patches” – Ready to be put together

I was going to cut out some additional fabrics, but decided to just continue with the process and use up all the 5″ strips I have  already cut.  I did pull some of the lights I had selected as I did not like the way there were turning out.  So now I get to cut some more strips.  The pattern calls for 130  3 inch 9 patches, but I am going to make a larger quilt, so I am “assuming” that if I make a total of 230 or 260 that the quilt would turn out to cover part of the California King bed!  Now if I find that I just cannot continue on with this “fun” project, it will be what it will be.

I have started quilting my BAS block and hope to have it complete next week.  It needs to get in the mail by next Friday ….. Humm.

Here is an idea I had for my last border on Rosemary Youngs Happy Scrappy project.  I originally decided to do the last border in the Chedder crackle with the hexie flowers on each corner, then last night I thought I might add more…. Boy those 5/8″ hexies are tough to do, but it might look better with more than one on each corner…..We will see what I end up with!

I have received my patterns from Australia – They are neat.  I ordered Auntie Green’s Garden, Mosaics, and Tulipa  from the original Irene Blanck the Designer.  Nice future projects.  Her website is  focusonquilts.com.au.   The postage may be high, but the patterns are in wonderful condition.  Clear and easy to trace for applique.  They will be a challange and are on my Bucket List!

I hope all have a great week-end and keep on quilting!  Until next week…. hopefully I will have finished some projects by then – or at least caught up with BOMs.
