Scrap-happy January 2021

 Lots of scrappy goodness happening around my place this month since I returned from vacation in Arizona.  First up was finding these postcards which I'd started a couple of years ago as I was putting away other goodies.   These still need to be completed and that I'll show in a future month.

Next up with deciding to pair some of the 70 or so UFO string blocks that I'd made from batiks and Moda Marble fabrics back in 2009 with a sun-painted batik panel that I'd been given by a friend quite a few years ago.  (Yup, those blocks have been moved cross country many times since then.)     Top finished about 42" by 54" in size so it will be good for a toddler quilt.

And because I didn't want to put the remaining string blocks away, I put together this quilt top.  Size is approximately 50" by 54", and I'm still debating whether to add top and bottom borders to the quilt.   The background is from scraps and a remnant.

Check out what everyone else has been doing this month:

1. First unemployment payment should come thru this week.

2. For praying friends
