Happy Monday! I had just a little sewing time over the weekend…but it was enough for a small finish and some scrap management! I’ve been trying to get a handle on my scraps…I love them so much and want to be sure I use them!
These fabrics might look familiar, but they’re not from the older Fig Tree fabric collection Strawberry Fields…they are from the upcoming Fig Tree collection Strawberry Fields Revisited…more on that later…
I did some simple machine quilting on my Mini Vintage Tulip quilt and even got the binding made and ready to be hand stitched…I’ll share the finished mini on our parade October 1st. Remember if you’ve made or are making this quilt, Michelle and I would love to have you join in the parade!
I used 3 ½″ squares to make little pockets for the dowel so I can hang this up as soon as it is finished!
Now…back to the scraps…I had some pretty small pieces of Strawberry Fields Revisited by Fig Tree and Company from market quilts I made a couple of weeks ago. By small I mean strips about 1 ½″ wide by 3, 5, and 7 inches in length. I just couldn’t bear to thrown them out and have something in mind for them, so Saturday I sewed the bits and pieces together and now have the start of a project…
I’m not sure when I’ll get back to these, but at least they are ready to go!
I’m so in love with the new Strawberry Fields Revisited…all of my favorites from the first collection are back…and there are some fun new prints as well. Joanna has been posting pictures of the fabrics and some of the new quilts on her Instagram, and as soon as she does the full reveal of the projects I worked on I’ll share them with you.
It was definitely a quality weekend in the sewing room…just a little bit of time spent equaled a lot of fun! Hope you got to sew this weekend!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
