One of the hardest things about having a weekly linky party is I get far too distracted by all the great projects that get shared every week. With a long list of holiday gifts needing to be made, I still found myself spending time playing with a few scraps....
Cutting so many tiny little pieces....certainly not my norm.
But I just had to try making the little piglet block that Gayle shared a few weeks ago.
I am not sure I chose scraps with enough contrast for my test block but we will just pretend my little piggy just had himself a little mud bath.
I extended my block out to 12" because I was considering corralling my piglets with my RSC16 chain blocks.
The block was originally shared on The Objects of Design, where you can find a tutorial.
....now if I can just find someone to do all that cutting and the fussy piecing. But they are pretty cute so maybe I can get through one piggy block a month!
And if you like to see how other quilters store their scraps, Linda over at Koka Quilts shared some photos of her sewing space. I really like how she stores her stash and scraps all together. After all, aren't they all just scraps?
Now it is time to link up and share what scrappy projects you have worked on this week. Here are the details for linking up:
- This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
- You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
- If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
- If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
- This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
- Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do!
