Scrap Happy Day

This past few weeks has had me playing with scraps quite a bit more than normal.

For anyone who has read my blog knows, I live in British Columbia, Canada. The past few years have had our wildfire season increasing and starting earlier. This year we experienced the most horrendous heat dome which saw our Province reeling under record setting high temperature. Then the town of Lytton burnt to the ground. Residents had 15 minutes notice to evacuate, with no possibility to grab anything but family members (some were not even able to gather their beloved fur babies). Then 2 Wildfires broke out within 10 miles of my home, coming within 2 miles, necessitating an Evacuation Alert being issued.

My time has been spent sewing scraps and running outside to watch the helicopters.

To date I have completed these quilt tops from my scrap bins, but I did have to cut yardage for sashing. I’m still considering the addition of borders but will finalize that decision when I get to the studio next week to get them on the longarm. These quilts will all go to the Quilts for Lytton Drive or any other place where wildfires have caused the loss of property for so many this year.

These quilts have no patterns. I just sewed and played around until I found a labout I liked, then added my sashing and/or borders.

There are a group of people who try to post each month to celebrate their Scrappy Fun for the month. They might not post every month since life can get in the way of our planned projects, but I always enjoy popping in to see what they’ve been up to.

Kate, Gun, Eva, Sue, Lynn, Lynda,
Birthe, Turid, Susan, Cathy, Tracy, Jill,
Claire, Jan, Moira, Sandra, Chris, Alys,
Kerry, Claire, Jean, Jon, Hayley, Dawn,
Gwen, Bekki, Sue L, Sunny, Kjerstin,
Vera, Nanette, Ann, Dawn 2, Bear,
Carol, Preeti, Edith and Debbierose

Thanks for reading my post. I’m hoping you are all managing to have some fabric fun this month! 😉 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.

  1. So glad you have been safe so far! It’s been heartbreaking to hear of all the damage. Your scraps are fun and lively and will brighten the day of whoever ends up with the quilt of comfort.
