Scrap ADD

I definitely have ADD.  I also think I'm over the top with scraps and trying to use mine up.  So this is what I spent this weekend making.

I followed Bonnie's instructions on Quiltville but realized that one of the dies I have is 4 7/8".  So I cut the triangles using my Go cutter.  I really don't like cutting triangles, so that made life a lot easier.

I saw this over at JulieKQuilts.  I did A LOT of cutting at Christmas with my Accuquilt Go.  So after reading the instructions I thought I would use some of those scraps.  I used a 3 1/2" square, 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" rectangle and 2 1/2" strips.  Julie did hers as crumbs.  My next go round will be crumby too.

Have a GREAT week.

Scrappy Spider Web

I got my scrappy spider web put together. There will definitely be a few more of this quilt throw into the mix. My friends are work tell me it's just me being picky, but I don't have points. I'm not quite sure what I did to not get points, but they aren't there. Oh well. I'm sure the baby recipient won't even notice and will be more interested in the bright colors.

Scrappy Spider Web Baby Quilt

I'm hoping to get this quilted this week or next.  I will be using more scraps for the binding.

I believe 2013 is become my use it up scrap year.  The plastic totes are overflowing with scraps, so it's time to get busy and use them.  Right now I'm working on a Bonnie/Quiltville scrap top.  I realized that the triangles I have to cut for that quilt are the same size as the Accuquilt Go Die I have so I be using that to speed my cutting up.

In between sewing scrappy blocks, I've been doing some embroidery too.  Lots of 31 bags.  I finally broke down and made a sweatshirt for myself.

Sun Devils


Joann's has run a sale on Hoodies since Thanksgiving, so I have piced up a few.  The design is from Katelyn's Kreative Stitches.  I didn't follow her directions and used old T-shirts that were cut up previously to make a t-shirt quilt. 

Have a great day!
