here they are, yes THEY, lol. Thank you to Staci, (see link below) & Karin, (link top and bottom) for blogging about Amber's Beautiful SCRAP JAR Quilt. Thank you to Amber from A Little Bit Biased for coming up with this cute pattern and sharing it. She has a free tutorial here for you to try if you'd like to make one of these too.
Now I completed these while dog sitting two pony-sized dogs who were really no help at all, had to go out to potty, came in then they were bored.... wanted out again, too hot.... wanted in, sleep awhile, repeat..... over and over again, lol. But while there I also zipped together some of the scappy grannies I've been accumulating making them as leader and ender blocks. So below the scrap jar tops is the scrappy grannies. A baby sized granny, I'll add a couple of borders to and set aside for whenever someone needs a top or a quilt..
Then, do you remember my post about "Art is all about perspective?" well you can go back and read it if you want, but here is my version of HELTER SKELTER, a pattern by Abbey Lane Quilts, done from the perspective I like best, turned 90 degrees. Still just a top, like all my quilts lately. But it is just toooooooo hot to have lap full of batting and fabric whether it be machine or handquilted. Hopefully some rain & cooler weather will be coming soooooooooon?
And to Karin and Staci, the confused quilter if you have not started sewing your components together, watch the corners, over the course of 18 blocks, 72 corner units, 3 of them almost got me, had one side sewn when realized it was wrong and had to unsew, but the quilt angels snickered again as I sewed the 4th one in wrong on 2 sides!!!! LOT's of FUN, thanks for the challenge!!! Let me know if you have any others..............;) Later, Cyndi
