BLOCKHEADS 2 - Week 45


This week's block is brought to you by Betsy Chutchian and it's a winner!  You can get the directions HERE. I hope to start putting all these blocks together this weekend. Hope to, because things here just got real with finalizing new patterns and getting new fabric shipped from the mill.  It is all hands on deck getting the new quilts ready for our next fabric group from Moda Fabrics.  Expect some sneak peeks next month!

In other news....... I finished my scrap quilt this week.  I made this using scraps entirely.  You would think that the scrap loss would be noticeable, but you would be wrong.  It's starting to get concerning. Do you think I've tapped into some scrap parallel universe? Some neverending scrap worm hole?  The laws of physics do not seem to apply.
 It doesn't have a name yet.  This was the best picture we could get.  The clothesline in the backyard was unapproachable due to ice.
I can't wait to get it back from being basted so I can work on this in the evenings.

Laters,

Laurie

Love the quilt! I seem to have tapped into a similar universe of Minick & Simpson fabrics. The Blockheads 2 project hasn't made a noticeable dent in my collection.

when you send out to have it basted is it done by machine or by hand? are you going to do big stitches? its diffently has a personality love it....

It is basted by a long arm quilter with BIG basting stitches all over. The long arm stitches are over 1" in length, but it is basted in a grid and believe me - it is thoroughly basted.

I will quilt this in my Big stitch hand quilting.

That is one amazingly beautiful scrap quilt! Love it!

After one cup of coffee.... my original suggestion for a name was "Compilation"...but, figured that might be a little too formal...so how about "Together Again"?

It's just so relaxing to sit and create with a pile of colorful scraps...and whatever that color reminds you of....that's what it becomes in the quilt...best therapy EVER! :-)

There are so many charming blocks in your scrap quilt--love it! You must have had a lot of fun making it and I know it's going to be even better with your big stitch quilting.
