Scrap Attack #3


Continuing on with more scraps! I started this quilt at the end of last year to use up some 2.5 inch squares. The inspiration came from SOTAK, her's was simple and fun. She went crazy on the hand quilting, mine is more basic. I love how the all over hand quilting really added to the project. Now that I have built up my calluses, it's time to do more quilting by hand. 




We are currently getting 3 to 6 inches of fluffy snow in New England. Schools are closed for the day, for me, no work! I did brave the cold and snow to venture out for some photos. This one has been waiting for some good light (hard to find this time of year) for weeks now. 



Friday we close on the house. I am getting so excited. Instead of being able to use my extra day off for sewing I am doing the practical thing, packing and school work. What I am not so excited about is moving, and unpacking. That whole process seems daunting.

  1. This is so cute and I love that it is rectangles instead of squares! Good luck with your move and hopefully you don't have to move quite as much quilt stuff as I did! LOL!

  2. All that hand quilting would have taken me forever! I love it! Good luck with the moving ... unpacking isn't that bad especially when you have a lovely new home to do it for :)

  5. Beautiful quilt Chels! Love the hand stitching!! Best of luck with the close and moving... As you unpack each box you will be taking ownership of the house and turn it into a home. No worries - you'll do just fine!! And with all your beautiful quilts your new abode will be lovely!

  10. A new house! YAY!
    I hate packing (it seems to take forever), but love unpacking. There is a sense of fresh start in a neat and organised unpack. I find I can unpack a whole house worth of stuff in two days. I clean the inside of the cupboards and then I just go hard until I drop with exhaustion, but it is all done.
    Enjoy your new home.
