Fininshed Scrap Strings Projects







I've been working at eliminating ALL my leftovers, still.
The pile is shrinking.
And, my stack of String Placemats/Tabletoppers is growing
Here are six more.

The Thimbleberries scraps are mine,
the colorful are a mix of mine and given to me.
Fat Quarters that need to be gone were used on the reverse.
These mats are quilt-as-you-go and have triple stitching at edge and trimmed with rotary cutter with pinking blade.

Just when I thought I was seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, I found another bag of scraps.  I peeked inside and it looks as though it's all Floral.

So, right after we have lunch 
[home today for a change as there is a bit of snow and ice out there and we did put on a Chuck Roast yesterday] That new-found bag of scraps will tumble out on the table and perhaps there will be no usable pieces.  [fingers-crossed]

  3. Hello Gerry!
    Came by to visit and thank you for your comment.
    I'm in awe! A Formula One racer of sewing is what you are!
    The closest I've come to quilting was buying some how-to booklets after marrying (thirty-odd yrs ago). I lent them to a friend... well, I hope she is still enjoying them.
    I see you also like genealogy! I do too, although in an sporadic manner, and up till now, less research than making a nice presentation for the family.

    Keep on 20-minuting!

  4. er..."Just straight sewing lines." ...
    "No more difficult that sewing a seam ! ! !"...
    Ger, you are a dear!
    I'm laughing and coughing, spluttering, coughing and laughing!
    Once you DO know how to sew, I'm sure there's NO difficulty 'tall!
    (and I do have lots scraps, and pieces of fabric... I LOVE fabric, even if don't know what to do with them... yet!)
    I do have a secret project, secret from my Mom as of yet, that she teach me how to use, and then lend me, her warhorse Singer.
    I remember, way back in the mists of time, using and that it was able to go nice and S L O W...
