It’s been busy here…my girls have been working on projects and I have been too. I just took a quilt out of the quilt machine that will be featured on Moda Bake Shop sometime in the next month or so. I’ve been working on my “My Red Heaven” quilt as a leader and ender project. (If you aren’t familiar with leaders and enders, you can learn more about them here) Slowly but surely that quilt will get done. All the Puss in the Corner blocks are done. Just a few more stars, and I’ll have the blocks finished.
After I sold my AccuQuilt GO!, I invested some of the money in new rulers. The rulers take less space and work better with my method of saving scraps. When our daughter Kelli was home and grabbed the tumbler ruler, my 2 1/2″ bucket and started cutting.
The ruler was a breeze to use. In under an hour she had this little table runner put together.
If you save your scraps in Bonnie Hunter’s scrap saving system of 2 1/2″ and 3 1/2″ strips, you might like this ruler too. The ruler allows users to cut tumblers from 2 1/2″ to 6″ strips and all 1/2″ increments in between.
My daughter Kayla made this rug from my “sliver” box. You can hop over to Kayla’s blog and learn how to make it…
That’s what has been happening around here. I am SO tempted to just take a day to clean and reorganize my sewing room. Since I have sold my AccuQuilt GO! and sold some other things on Yard Sales, I have a couple empty cupboards. Some the things that aren’t in cupboards now, needs to be put in cupboards. I just want to eliminate some clutter….Spring does that to me…
