Sewing the Scrap Top

31 Aug

I haven’t been sewing much so this top is taking way more time than it needs to. But it’s simple and I can start and stop without asking myself what I was doing.

It’s going to be 8 x 9 blocks so this bottom row represents the halfway point. I like it so far. At first both Gianna and I thought it was too scrappy. That was after row one and its corresponding top sashing. But experience has told me to keep going before I judge. Given a few more row, I can see that’s not the case at all.

If I put a 4″ border around the whole thing when I’m done, it will be queen sized. I will do that so I can swap out another bed quilt here since the ones on our beds are getting pretty shabby and old.

Hope you have some relaxing time on your holiday weekend. Take some time to sew or knit or whatever makes you relaxed and happy!
