Scrap-Happy August 2022

 Lots of working on scrappy stuff this month.

First up were 10 of the prairie point blocks I'm making using leftover bits of binding and B/W fabrics.

Finished off (quilting and binding) the 5 memory quilts for my friends.   These will be delivered this week.

String quilt.....blocks were made with green strings.   Flowers were scraps of prefused fabric, border, sashings and backing (pieced) were all from scraps.   This quilt has already been sold.

To cover an oops in the 'green fabric' I'd made for the blocks, I added 4 butterflies cut from a scrap leftover from the hordes of masks that I'd made in 2020.  
Another of the additional butterflies I added to the quilt.
This top was a UFO made a while ago.   Center is a large hand-dyed piece just over a FQ in size.   borders are some of the batik, Moda Marble and other similar looking strings sewn into about 6" widths.   Will put this one up for sale.

1: For the interviews that have started to trickle in, even the ones that are just strange and very obviously won't be going anywhere.

2. For the steady commissioned work that is coming is during this time of unemployment, including being able to sell some of my UFO's.
