More recently we made a trip to our family cabin where I generally get in some real quality sewing time so I brought the above mentioned bag of fabric fun with me to see what I could whip up! I had a lot of fun sorting out the various possibilities and then I got to work.
There were a fair number of yellow, white, grey and black scraps in the mix so I pulled them out and got the beginnings of an abstract thingy sewn.
Next up I sorted out a whole pile of these leftover Triangle units. I separated the dark bottoms from the light and paired them up and this little top popped right out!
Next up were these sunflower print strips. There were already some of these stripy units made. I figured "why fight it?"
So I gathered up the rest of the strips and assembled the rest! There were also a bunch of big pieces of sunflower fabric so I cut those into big squares and threw those into the mix as well. At first I thought the result was toooo busy, but on second viewing I think it's OK?!
Last but not least were these long patchy units. With a few switches so's not to have two similar patches side by side I was able to put them together in no time!
This one will definitely need a couple of borders to get it big enough to be a lap size but it's not like I don't have enough fabric in my stash to accommodate?! Snicker, Snicker!
I will try to get these done quickly. I am woefully behind on my charitable work.
These will all go to the Wheelchair bound Vets project.
I love these kinds of projects! I can do serious sewing when pressed to the task but for fun vacation sewing nothing beats a bag of scraps!
