Trying to Make A Dent

I have a new niece who should make her first appearance any day now. So my first priority at the retreat was to put together this little quilt for her. It’s a smaller version of my Harvest Sky pattern. I’ve got to get hopping so I get it quilted and bond before she arrives.Next up was my spiderweb quilt. I sewed out of the same bin of scraps for two days and it doesn’t even look like a small dent was made. How does that happen? The only proof I have are these blocks. Maybe by the time I make the remaining 29 blocks the scrap bin have signs that it has been put to good use.

    Didn't you know that scraps reproduce in those bins? 😉
    Love the photo of the flimsy with the sun streaming through from behind — makes it look like stained glass.

    I Love that Harvest Sky quilt. Beautiful colors.

  • Brenda says:

    lovely webs. and you did make a dent, I promise. It's just that you fluffed up the scrap bins so you can't see the difference.

    I always feel the same way when I go into the scrap bins. They never seem to disappear. Both quilts are wonderful. One of these days I am going to do one of those webs. I love it.

    I love your niece's quilt. It's a totally different look. And I'm crazy about your spider web quilt. Love the way you made background "stars." Very pretty!

    What is it about scrap bins? Mine do the same thing. The more you use, the more you have!!!

    The baby quilt looks fantastic with the sun behind it – what a great effect! Hope all goes well for mum and bub.
