Over the last month, I have been working with my 1.5″ scrap bucket making nine patches for my Crab Apple Quilt.
I have the pieced borders done and I have the top of the blocks pieced. Now I need to start working on the tree trunks. When I looked at the pattern I figured I would put a big dent in my in my scrap box…but it really didn’t. I still have enough in there to make another quilt.
The pattern is from Bonnie Hunter’s Leader and Ender book. I was hoping there was another quilt in the book using 1.5 strips but there is not. It looks like I will be moving to my 2″ scrap bucket next.
I have been piecing a lot lately….but I really need to get a few things into the quilting machine and get them quilted. Unfortunately, the quilt machine is upstairs and there is no air conditioning there…UGH!
