Final Finish for 2015

     Today I finished sewing a scrappy binding on the Scrappy Duo lap quilt which makes it the final finished quilt for the year.  If you want to make one, you can find out more about the pattern here

      Saturday I spent most of the day playing with scraps and “made-fabric”. 

I already had a piece of made-fabric about 15 by 15” that I wanted to use for a 4” finished border but I needed more that was similar.  Here is the pile of scraps I pulled to use and there is a piece of made-fabric in the middle.  After free piecing a section, I trimmed it to 4 1/2" for the border.  The larger trimmed pieces became part of another section.

Today the top is finished.  A niece is expecting in May and she wants a garden theme for the nursery.  I hope she will like this. 

 If you are in the Columbia area and want to try playing with crumbs and made-fabric, Saturday morning, March 19th I will be teaching a workshop at Midlands Technical College, Harbison branch. You can find out more on their website.

Enjoy a few minutes of sewing or quilting!


  1. Great finish! I love your crumbs border ----it is perfect for this one!

  2. I love both quilts! Thanks for the link to the Scrappy Duo quilt. That looks like a fun quilt to make.

  3. Your "made fabric" gives me confidence to turn my UFO into something more than a UFO. I bought a bag of fabric from a Garage Sale last summer. I had fun doing what I called "freestyle piecing". Yet 6 months later, I have been only looking at it wondering what comes next. Thank you for your inspiration. Your niece is a lucky person to have you for an Aunt!
