WIP Wednesday – Scraprepping

This week I’m back to making seekrit blocks for the East Cobb raffle quilt, but I have been doing some smaller quilts as leaders and enders.  I had a very bright floral print that I cut up into 6 1/2″ squares, and then framed on two sides with 3 1/2″ from my scrap stash to make the block. So I was scrapping and prepping, and maybe that’s scraprepping?

I ended up with 30 of those blocks to make this top, which photographs weird thanks to the confluence of my skylight, my angle in taking the photo, and the fact that I’m a better quilter than a photographer!

The top and back are done and now in the pile-up of things to be quilted.  That pile-up is down to 3, now, though, so it’s not too bad! This one will be up next to finish, I think, followed by another pattern Lynn and I designed.

I also need to be prepping things for my two classes on Friday – I’m taking Hoopless Hand Quilting with Sharon Schamber and the Glow Sticks quilt from Cristy Fincher, both at the Atlanta Sewing & Quilt Expo. Very exciting!

  1. I hope you have a great time at the Sewing Expo. We have those here and they are always a bit disappointing. I will check the next one out in hopes that your Atlanta version has inspired the CA event.

    Great quilt! Very cheerful and it looks like you were able to use a number of your precut scraps.
