|Yesterday was Scraptastic Tuesday, but since I was in bed all day, today is my scrappy day.|
This is the design wall today.
|This Pumpkin Peel unit is a new addition to the wall.|
I was offered a chance to take a class with Mary Elizabeth Kinch at the MN Quilter's show in Duluth on Saturday (thanks again, Susan!), I used leftover scraps from the 365 Challenge quilt and chose a Jo Morton dot as my background. I need three more of these units for a table topper.
|Mary Elizabeth suggested using and unexpected background--maybe a cheddar? I could use red for a patriotic look, I suppose. The units are appliqued to the background, so until I get three more completed, I have plenty of time to ponder--lol!|
|My mystery hour glass units have been sewn together just to get them out of the way--I'm not sure what will happen with this next.|
|Even though I had vowed that I would not participate in any sew along's this year--here I am sewing along. My excuse is that I had the book and the scraps!|
I asked Denise at Colorz to order a Magic Pressing Mat for me--I don't know why I waited so long to get one of these. The theory is that the thick felted wool holds the heat. It's a bit pricey, but I love it!
Back to the scrap pile!
