ScrapHappy June 2022

I was chatting with Kate this afternoon and told her I’ve had no time today to post …. Yet …

She did say that there’s no urgency to post each month but I do feel like I’ve missed something important if I don’t.

So here’s what I have made at the end of last month. I had pieces of fabric which were just a perfect size for hexies.

I ended up making hearts and still have no idea what it’s going to end up being at this stage, but I’m just happy to see them made and sitting on my table …. I know inspiration will hit at some stage but till then my ‘Heart’ will be there ♥️

Three “full” hearts
One “heart” outline.

Happy ScrapHappiness all & will definitely see you next month 🥰

And they are here 😘

Two and a half years later and hundreds of video calls Kate & John are here with me.

Happy does not begin to describe how I feel. There are some people you meet along your journey through life and when you cross paths you just “click”…. Well that’s the way it is with us.

Blessed & grateful to call them my friends ❤️

🙏 WELCOME 🤗

A gift for my birthday 🥳 HANDMADE of course!

BLOCKS for OC

This is the first year I have volunteered to make blocks for Ovarian Cancer fundraiser. I have been quilting and learning different blocks for the last two years now and I’m hoping I have made something that can be used in the quilt.

Kate has been making these beautiful quilts for many years and I feel privileged to be part of this process.

The four blocks made so far 😍

This looks very blue instead of teal .. so may not be part of the blocks

ScrapHappy May 2022

And here we are again…. A super time of the month…. When we all share our lovely ScrapHappiness 🤗

My post is going to be a short one as we leave in an hour to hit the road again. We are heading to Mundulla in South Australia. It’s 505kms of riding and I don’t think I’ll be in any shape to do any blogging later 😄

This piece is a follow up to the rag quilt I sent my aunt last month. I noticed a cushion sitting on her bed and decided she needed a cover for it.

And I present …..

Having seen a pillow behind the cushion I’m thinking a matching pillow case too …. I have enough scraps for it 🤩

SCRAPHAPPY APRIL 2022

A Story ….

Once upon a time …. In a land far far away ….
Oops wrong story …. 🤩

This story is about 7 cushion covers … they were made for the cushions in my lounge… however they were too big for the cushions…. I did use them but only once …. And being big the edges tipped forward like ears 😳…
So they sat in my basket 🧺 for a long time …
I would NEVER EVER throw them out … so I did the next best thing…. I made it into a foot rug for my bed. I have one cover left over so I can use that to dress up my pillows … A job done ✔️ and I’m very happy 😊
The end …. (Well to this quilt story anyway 😄)

The cushion covers made last year…
You can see the floppy ears !!
The cushion inserts were filled with batting cut to size & I did FMQ all over & then used the QAYG method to join …
A ScrapHappy Rug for the foot of my bed 🥰

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 my Contact Me page. You can also contact Gun via her blog to join. We welcome new members. You don’t have to worry about making a long term commitment or even join in every month, just let either of us know a day or so in advance if you’re new and you’ll have something to show, so we can add your link. Regular contributors will receive an email reminder three days before the event.
