I got a few things finished over the 4th of July weekend.
I made this Table Topper with one of these Scrap Bags. This particular scrap bag was approx. 2 1/2" and after I trimmed off the selvage edge I came up with 2" strips. Here is an example of the bags.
A while back I purchased a Moda Scrap Bag on Amazon. These are strips cut down the side of some yardage and include the strip with the name of the pattern designer and color swatches. They usually are between 2 1/2" to 3 1/2" in width which includes the selvage.
I started a new applique project. I'm still working on Linda Brannock's Flower quilt with Karen at Log Cabin Quilter. I was going through some books and came across The Pokeberry Quilt by Jan Patek. I will be working a bit slower on this one. Here's my first block.
The background looks gray...however in reality it is brown. This is the first time working with brown as a background.
Finally....Ta Da....I finished the blocks for my Vivid Grid Quilt.
Here are blocks 19 thru 30. All the blocks are up on my design wall but I didn't get a picture. I'm hoping to get the blocks all sewn together this weekend.
I hope every one had a safe and happy 4th of July. We stayed home however it was any thing but quiet. There were so many fireworks going off in the neighborhood that the smell of sulfur was strong in the air. Our poor dog, Sammie, hid under the bed.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
