Scrappy Fun

Posted July 7th, 2014 by marcella and filed in quilting

I’ve managed to make it into my sewing room a bit lately. While I had intentions to actually finish the quilt I’ve been working on, that hasn’t actually happened.

I spotted on the Moda Bakeshop blog a row quilt, and the patterns are so cute I couldn’t resist. Instead of finishing something, I started something new. Out came the scrap box and I started cutting away.

I’ve managed to finish row 1

And row 3

Row 2 is cut out and ready to appliqué. Because I want to do this row by hand it will take a while.

Naturally, I have to change something. I can’t seem to do a project without some sort of adjustment. I turned row 2 into 8 blocks with four pieces to appliqué rather than 32 little blocks sewn into 8 blocks. Easier to cut 8 1/2″ squares and place the four pieces then do it in smaller sections I think.

Oh, and I think I’ll do something different for row 4. Sorry, but those look nothing like strawberries. I’m thinking of swapping out this pattern instead, but I’ll have to play with the math a little.

It’s been a fun diversion in my spare minutes. Not too many spare minutes this week as I get ready for scout camp.

Sewing today was scout neckerchiefs…no quilting time for me.

What are you working on?

    Good morning! I’m making this, too. I’ve finished row one and am working on the needle turn appliqué for row two. It’s supposed to be a scorcher today…a good day to sit in the shade and stitch on those little blocks!

    Love your colors and had lots of fun making this myself. Congratulations on winning! I can’t wait to hear what prize they have in store for us. Have you heard? After the excitement of this project I can’t decide what to tackle next.

    I did NOT think row four was strawberries!

    I’m working on a “block of the month” quilt through the local quilting shop. Except I want it to be 5×6 instead of 3×4, so I’m making three of each block for 6 months, then 2 of each for 6 months to get what I want. :-D
