Sujata's Challenge

Pink Valentine
Sujata from Basket Full of Scraps challenged us to make a small 24 x24 quilt using just scraps with a Valentine vibe to it. I must say I had a blast making this and it was real fast. Some of these scraps were leftovers from the basket quilt. All that is left is the binding that will get done tomorrow.


It made quite a mess but it cleaned up relatively quickly. I did use up some scraps but it seemed as if they multiplyed as I put them back in the baskets.



I recieved another block from an online bee I am in. This one is from Loretta in Michigan. Look at all the prairie points! Loretta also sent me a recipe for her Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas that look really good.

In my last post I told you about the batting fusible seam tape. One of my faithful readers sent a comment saying you could buy lightweight fusible interfacing for knits and just cut it into strips for a lot less money. Thank you Vicki of Field Trips in Fiber .  Please check out her blog, you will love all the great pictures she posts and lots of good things to read about.

    I love these hearts! You do work really fast! I like the borders all scrappy too. What a fun quilt!
    My sewing room never stays clean. I just make more mess while I clean.

  6. I love the love quilt. Spreading out the scraps is the only way to use them but I have trouble fitting them back into the container too.
