Confessions of A Quilt-aholic – The Oppression of Scraps

scraps

 

Does anyone else feel like their scraps are coming to get them! I do! I try to cut so geometrically that I am left with minimal scraps! I literally figure out my block pattern by seeing how much of each fabric I have. That degree I’ve almost finished in Financial Mathematics, and my love of Geometry make planning out a quilt quite easy!  I try my best not to have scraps and I still have quite a few! I take my scraps from each quilt and put then in a ziplock bag and put the name of the quilt on each bag and the month and year I made it. This way, if I need a scrap for something, I can find it quite easily by remembering what quilt it was in and then just find the bag! I also love doing a nice scrap quilt to help dwindle my scrap collection! Continue reading

Etsy zelda Quilt Update! Aug 9th

Lakeville-20130809-00627

Finally made some progress on this quilt! After a week of mild setbacks, I made quite a bit of headway this week. After a broken AC which made ironing quite annoying, and the treads on my machine not working properly. There was a hunk of thread stuck in the back of the treads under the plate, so I had to do quite a bit of digging to find it, and vacuumed it out! I love my shop vac, it is the only thing powerful enough to get everything out. I really should clean my machine more often! Haha! One of these days, right?

Anyhow, this quilt is my first Etsy sale, and I want it to be perfect, and I didn’t want to half-ass any part of it. So I waited until my conditions improved and now I rocked it amazingly! I love the way they greys come together and make a weathered stone feel. The last one I did was supposed to be a weathered landscape look, so I used greens, browns, and greys. That gave the illusion of mossy rocks and dirt, but this grey stone one is equally as beautiful! I’m really proud of it, and I cannot wait to finish it and get it in the mail for my first customer! I hope she’ll love it!!!
