The months just seem to fly by! Here it is, April Scrap-Happy time again. I need to post this project a day early because tomorrow is the 2nd Saturday of the month, and I will be hosting the Fantastic Bake Along. Blueberry muffins, Yumm!!
But I really am so glad for this little Scrap Happy nudge from Kate @Tall Tales From Chiconia to help me get a few stitches in on my Maple Leaf Rag Quilt.
Really, this quilt would just sit in the box for who knows how long if it wasn’t for this fantastic link party:).
Now before I get ahead of myself, I am making the MapleLeaf Rag Quilt from the book “Material Obsession 2”
I love so many of the patterns in this book. They are not so simple that they can be done in a day or two. They take sweet time and become a part of your life. A good quilt is like that.
Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself…. you start with a bunch of scrapsI like to cut odd shapes from 2-3″ in wacky anglesI piece them together or use left over cut strips and re-sew them back together in any wonky way that they fit. If I get too many straight lines going, I cut the crazy fabric and start adding new pieces.
Now that is what I call “Scrap-Happy!”
