I joined up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge over at Soscrappy. She called for us to dig into our blue scraps and make something.
She gave some ideas on her blog of a mug rug or some blocks. I pulled out my blue scraps and my white/neutral scraps.
I just sewed and cut and ironed and used my Dresden wedge ruler.
I ended up with this.
I think that I may take these blue and white scraps...
And piece strips on the ends to create a table runner. And these scraps
To piece a backing.
I need a gift for an upcoming family get together next Sat, and this may fill the bill.
BTW check out this stash!
These are my new Billy bookshelves from IKEA. They were on sale for $99 with the glass doors. I will put those on after I finish straightening the mess. FYI I used comic boards to create all of these lovely mini bolts. 100 for about $7 or 8 . Check out my how to here. I need to get another pack because I still have some fabric to fold.
All the little containers stacked up the middle and off to the side are my scraps and fat quarters. I still need to sort through and organize them better. It is delightful to be able to see all the fabric I have.
The fabric on the left is my 90's stash. On the right the top shelf is my feed sacks, batiks, and repros from the 90's too. The 2nd and third shelves are mostly new fabrics I have been collecting. Then my solids including hand dyed. Next to the bottom are baskets I am organizing fat quarters into. The bottom is my Christmas fabrics. Be looking for my January stash giveaway coming up in a week or so. I will be choosing some fabric from my blue 90s stash. I may just coordinate my giveaways to the Rainbow Scrap challenge.
