Patchwork Project Hopping!

I know! I know! I should be concentrating on the UFO ‘one quilt into four’ project BUT somehow my mind has wandered and I’m wanting to throw the blocks of one of my scrappy ‘back-burner’ quilts onto the design wall…

A few of the blocks on the design wall, plenty more in the storage boxes!

This is my, never-ending, use-up-the-scraps ‘leader-ender’ project a la Amanda Jean Nyberg’s ‘Scrap Vortex Quilt‘. I’ve made several quilts by slightly adapting Amanda Jean’s method and see no reason to stop making them! It’s a way of keeping my little scraps of fabric under control whilst producing a fun quilt. What’s not to like? 😀

Well! When I say the scraps are ‘under control’…..

I keep this bin next to my sewing machine, pairing up scraps as leaders & enders whilst piecing blocks for other projects.

…. A few hours later….

The blocks are bigger but the scrap containers aren’t empty yet!

I’ve had a productive afternoon sewing little scraps into bigger and bigger blocks. Still a way to go. By the end of the week I should have a finished quilt top to share in a blog post. In the meantime I’ll be posting progress on Instagram @allisonreid.neweverymorning and Facebook, NewEveryMorningPQ.

Linking with Beth for Monday Making. Beth has used home furnishing fabric samples to make a pair of patchwork cushion covers.
