Here are the first Mountain blocks. Two finished, one cut ready to sew and one before cutting. I’m almost finished cutting up the shirts!
The crumb blocks keep on growing…..I think I’ll use them as leader enders as I work on the Mountain blocks if I can keep the scrap salad under control : )
Here’s a closer picture of some of them. I really like them but am pondering what color of sashing to use to pull it all together.
I just can’t believe how much fun I’m having with these crumb blocks. I now have 15 squared up 6 1/2″ blocks and quite a few more growing :-).
I couldn’t wait to finish cutting up the shirts for the Mountain (Scrappy Mountain Majesties is too long to write everytime) quilt so I’ve cut a couple of 8 1/2″ squares that I’ll sew up this weekend.
So I’ve squared up some of the crumb blocks and look at my “scrap salad”!! I have several more blocks in progress and am having such fun with these.
A couple of us at work are learning to make crocheted rugs from fabric strips. I bought a sheet from Goodwill this weekend and cut it into strips. The blue & white piece under the ball is another sheet waiting to be stripped.
I finished the binding on Thimbleberry Village quilt this weekend and will add a label tonight. Another completed quilt, YEA!!
I also cut, sewed and ironed the binding to go on my Tiger Lily quilt. I’ll sew it on to the quilt soon. I hand appliqued this quilt and my mother did the quilting.
Here’s a few close-ups of the quilting details on the Village quilt which was also quilted by my mom.
I messed around a bit in my sewing room making a string block to see how they go together and some crumb blocks.
I’m trying to decide if I want to keep the crumbs I’ve saved…..
I’ll play around with them a bit more as I’m not sure if I like doing these or not.
Light shirts are finished and I’m making a dent in the dark ones. And look at all the shirt buttons! The box is from candy I received for the holidays. The square flap folds over and the small flap folds over on top and has a magnet in it to hold it closed….way to nice to just throw away!
