Happy Monday! There are just a few more days left in 2014, but I’ve already made some plans for the blog in 2015. While reviewing my posts from this year (I’ll do a recap post later this week) I realized that I really need to make more scrap quilts in 2015. So I thought it would be fun to post about sewing with scraps every Monday in the new year. I’ll share my scrappy progress each week and also have a linky tool here on the blog so everyone can post and link up with their scrap sewing for the year…I hope it sounds fun…I know it will motivate me to get sewing with more scraps. And it will be extra fun to be able to search the links and see even more scrappy inspiration.
I’ll begin next Monday and have everything set up so you can add your photo/link that day as well! I will also have a blog button finished next week…and if you don’t have a blog I’ll have an option for you to share your progress as well.
One of my favorite ways to use scraps is to make scrappy Dresden Plate blocks…and so I’ve created a video tutorial on assembling this block.
The tutorial was filmed in two parts–the first part is up now and covers making and assembling the Dresden blade part of the block.
Or, you can watch the video on You Tube here. Hope you enjoy it!
Part 2 will be up next week–it shares my technique for making the center circle on the Dresden block.
Get ready for fun scrap sewing in 2015…thanks so much for stopping by!
