Scrap-Happy May 2021

 Several projects this month have been completed.

First up were a pair of bowl cozies.  These were made with the focus fabric being taken from a kitchen hand towel (one of a pair).  The navy fabric was cut from a remnant and the batting used in it was left from the last bunch of cozy orders.  The cozies and 2nd hand towel went to a friend in TX.

The big project for the past month has getting this queen-sized t-shirt quilt made and sent out.   The front of the quilt has the fronts from 42 T-shirts.  

I made it in 3 panels consisting of 2 columns of blocks.  And then quilted those panels before sewing them together with sashing .

The quilt back was made from shirt backs for the columns.  Leftover leopard print fabric that I'd used last month to make the arm cover was used for the sashings on the back.  
And finally, I took a stack of blue strings, most of which were already sewn into strips and made them into blocks.   I used some pre-made papers I'd bought for string blocks to stabilize the blocks.  

Debating layout and sashing fabrics for the quilt now.  Have more string 'fabric' already prepped to use for at least part of a border.

Check out what everyone else has been doing this month - 

1. For making progress on the commissioned orders and a little time to work on fun projects

2. For the progress I've been able to make on assigned projects at the job
