Scrap Basket Sunday

Thanks to Kim, I'm still pulling treasures from my scrap basket and turning them into blocks for this quilt...


What I have I done this week with some of those scraps? Besides provide a napping place for the princess...
 


I made this panel instead of making the clamshell panel.

 
I did this for several reasons: it was easier to strip cut tiny tumblers (using a template that I may have a 100 or so of) than hand cut the curved pieces, it was easier to machine piece these than hand sew the clamshells, and I happen to love tiny tumblers (hmm, wonder why!?!)

It's so fun to see the scraps from different projects playing so nicely together. Now I'm off to check out the other scrap basket projects, hope you are too!

Enjoy every stitch!

  4. I like quilts that combine piecing and applique and will be following your progress. You are off to a great start with a very pretty combination of colors.

  5. I love your tumbler panel! It looks like you have a lot of 30s fabrics and colors there along with a few more modern fabrics that get along very well with the 30s. This will be a fun project to watch develop.
