It’s that Scrap Happy time again:). I always look forward to linking up with Kate and Gun on their monthly Scrap Happy challenge. I love to see how everyone is using their scraps and making beautiful things.
I really feel Scrap happy today because my Maple Leaf Rag quilt is FINALLY feeling like I might have it under control. The last time I posted about my progress it was a five steps backward day. But that day of preparation has set the groundwork for the rest of the quilt. Yea!!
I opened my Maple Leaf Rag scrap box, and there were my nice and orderly 1.5″ strips that were all cut to the right length this time.
It was a breeze to sew them into strip groups of six. I just listened to a book a cranked these puppies out:)
A quick press at the ironing board, and I had 10 long, beautiful strips in no time. I hope that will be enough, but I can always sew more if needed.
I was able to get two full sets of 8 triangles from each strip. I cut one direction, and then flipped my wedge ruler and cut the other. Easy!
I have enough for 22 webs. Next month I will work on the crazy patches so I can start sewing them all together. I just love it!
This quilt is going to be SWEET! Thank you Kate for giving me a deadline each month to keep the project going:)
