Scrap Happy Day

I discovered Kate and Gun’s Scrap Happy Days post through an online friend and decided that it fits in my wheelhouse perfectly! I love playing with my scraps and creating something fun with them. Once a month these bloggers post their scrappy projects so I decided to join in.

I had jumped in to doing the SAHRR to use the last bits of these scraps, while trying to get my SAHRR quilt top together. They were leftover bits from another pattern test that I’m not able to share yet.

My project started with an orphan block and I started adding borders as they were called for. This first photo shows my block with the called for Piano Keys, Plus Signs, Checkerboard and Flying Geese. then I got stalled when real life slowed me down with prior commitments.

This is how far I’ve managed to keep caught up before life got in the way.

Then the question is how to add these little wonky stars in?

So I kept playing and got the border with my wonky stars on.

Next up was the log cabin and pinwheels. 🤔

Finished size for my SAHRR is 60” square. The fabrics for this project came from my stash or scrap bins. I used Aurifil thread for my piecing and used my Accuquilt for as much of the cutting as I could. I love the dies for the accuracy of the cuts, the dog ears being removed and how quickly I can get the strips cut for any of the widths I use.

That left me with just enough fabric to make a scrappy border for what has been a very satisfying fun project.

One of my goals with this project was to ensure I have plenty of negative space to play with the quilting. I just picked up the ruler base for the longarm so I can play more with my rulers (and I might have ordered another ruler or two from a new to me Canadian manufacturer).

I’d like to thank the organizers of this fun challenge:

My goal with this project was to use the last little bits of fabric I had from these lines of fabric and use the background from my stash. Nothing was purchased to make this quilt so I’m happy.

Now it’s time to plan how soon I can get this on the longarm so it will be a finish for 2021.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing some of your time with me. 😁 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  2. I love your SAHRR!!!! Such great interpretations of the various rounds. My favorite might be your flying geese, how they seem to curve around your corners! Have fun with your quilting!
