Oh Scrap! : Another Very Productive Day

 On Saturday, I spent the day sewing with a good friend.  Instead of bringing a whole bag with lots of sewing options, I brought ONE project.

The project I took were my scrappy paper-pieced letters.

I stayed focused and finished my way through the blue letters.

The color orange was next and I completed the letter D and T.  Even though we gabbed a ton, I am so pleased I finished 5 of these letters.

I still have the color purple to do.  For that color, I have the letters E and N to do.  But I am motivated now so maybe I will finish those up this week.

I put all the letters completed to date up on the wall.  The next step will be to start deciding on spacing, trimming the letters and piecing all the background fabrics.  

I have about a month to get this all finished as I hope to put it up in my booth at the Westside Quilters Guild Quilt Show in early October.  I will be the featured quilter there.

Did you have a productive week?


It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  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!

Great progress on your banner. The letters look great together. It's the perfect banner to represent the scrappy quilter that you are. Well done! ;^)

Your pieced sign is such a fun idea! I'll look forward to seeing how you put it together with a background. Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

Love the letters! I was wondering what they would finally spell out. Purple will be a great addition.

Shoot - I wish I lived a tiny bit closer so I could come to the show - congrats on being this year's featured quilter! It is so nice to have in-person quilt shows starting back up. I went to a tiny one this weekend and a nice one in August. Such a treat! Be sure to take pictures of your quilts on display so we can see them grouped up.
