HQAL Scrap Happy Day

It’s a Scrap Happy, Hand quilting day! I am happy to report that I have been English paper piecing again. I have sewed my tiny scrap fabrics into 11 Quatro color stars.

I stitch in the evenings and even bought a small press board and travel iron for my bedroom. I think Jeff Foxworthy might say I might be a Red Neck if….. lol!

I feel like I have finished quite a few star units, but I am really just a little more than half way finished with the stars. I have the back ground to go as well.

I think I am going to be working on this for quite sometime. Maybe I should hire a new helper. This one is a 10 on the SWEETNESS scale, but he likes to jump on the fabric more than sew it together:)❤️❤️

It has been a great few weeks of stitching. I wonder what the other stitchers are up to? If you have a bit of time, you may want to go check them out.

  1. You sure do have some gorgeous scraps. What a pity it would have been if you hadn’t started to use them! I think every hand stitcher should have a super-cute helper. Mine wears black fur and has a pointy nose, but yours is also a gorgeous boy!


  2. I want a super cute helper 🙂 Lots of great scraps turning into beautiful stars! You have quite a stockpile of them so far. Love the idea of a travel iron too – I never thought of that. May be a new online purchase 🙂


  3. What a cute little helper! I can see how getting much done with him around would be a challenge. I love all the color in your stars and isn’t it fun to use up your scraps. I really enjoy sifting through my scraps to choose the right ones for a project.

  4. I currently am working on a queen-size EPP quilt using 2″ diamonds and hexagons. I think I have been working on it for almost 3 years, but I think I just need to do 4 more rows. Of course I have also made other quilts by machine during those 3 years, but EPP is wonderful to work on while traveling and while watching tv in the evening. And if there is nothing on tv to watch, my husband will read to me while I stitch. I really like your project, and am wondering how you are going to join them.


  5. Two big bits of cuteness today! That is one precious boy, and your blocks are wonderful. It takes a while, but you are already half-way through the flowers!
