No fabric in or out this week.

I finished the Birds top.

Everything is hand appliqued. I decided not to add a lot of embroidery as the top is busy enough as is. I will add eyes to the birds and feet to the bird standing on the branch, but no more than that.

All the greens came out of my scrap basket. This is the third quilt I’ve made from my green scraps, and the basket is still full. Is it even possible to use up a scrap container?

I’m beginning to think not.

Fabric In: 17.75

Fabric Out: 15.25 yards

Net Fabric In: 2.5 yards

    I don’t think it is possible to use up scraps. They multiply when we aren’t paying attention.
    Cute wall hanging!

    I believe that you can reduce a scrap heap as long as you don’t cut into any fabric for a new project.

    I love your cardinal applique. As far as can you ever use up a scrap bin? I don’t think so. I do not understand how that is possible, but mine might get a little smaller but never gone. I made 4 quilts from the scrap drawers this summer and I still have too many. I might have a thousand quilts that could come out of my scraps.

    Sweet wall hanging! Or is it a table topper? How do you plan to quilt it? 🙂
