ScrapHappy August 2021

Another month gone by & lots of sewing and scrappiness from my end. We are still in lockdown 🤦‍♀️ & if nothing else it’s always the best time to see & keep my mind & hands occupied.

Being creative is wonderful… to see things slowly emerge from little pieces of scraps is wonderful 😍 & when those little scraps become a whole thing it’s the ultimate 🧵

This quilt is completely scrappy & is recycling at its best 🤩 I have a fair few quilt covers and as the years have gone by I use some more often than others. This cover belonged to one of the kids and as it’s not used anymore I was definitely NOT going to throw it out or give it away. We all know how expensive fabric is & when you have a whole cupboard full of cotton quilt covers how can you go wrong.

This quilt is one of my favourite ways of quilting… yes … RAG QUILTING 💝 Its easy and oh so effective. I’m still getting used to naming my quilts & I haven’t gotten around to actually giving it a name …. But seeing it on my bed & running my hands over it’s softness makes me super happy 😊

ScrapHappy is open to anyone using up scraps of anything – no new materials. It can be a quilt block, pincushion, bag or hat, socks or a sculpture. Anything made of genuine scraps is eligible. If your scrap collection is out of control and you’d like to turn them into something beautiful or useful instead of leaving them to collect dust in the cupboard, why not join us on the 15th of each month? Either email Kate at the address on her Contact Me page, or leave a comment below. You can also contact Gun via her blog to join.

  1. I do like the fabrics in this one, and I agree, I can’t bear seeing doona covers thrown out just because someone wants something new. It really offends a quilter’s soul, doesn’t it?
