Scrap-Happy September 2022

Had to think this month about whether I'd actually done some scrappy work amid all of the commissioned work that I've been doing these days.   And the answer was yes, for which I was thankful.


First up were 20 or so string pieced scrappy blocks that were trimmed to 6.5" in size.   These used all of my little scraps and the various strings that had been collected over the years.
The rest of the scraps of WOW's and Cream tonals were cut up into 2.5" and 3.5" squares ready for my next scrappy project.
Finally was this scrappy quilt made with 6.5" and 4.5" cut squares of assorted puppy fabrics.   The yellow used to bring the 4.5" squares up to the 6.5" size ended up scraps from a commissioned quilt where the customer had not sent enough fabric to make the blocks (she was 1 2.5" strip short...sigh) and I had to buy a replacement fabric because I couldn't match the dye lot.    This will either be sold or donated at some point.


Check out what everyone else has done this month -

1. It looks like I've got a job (contract position) after over 2 months of unemployment, just waiting on final details to work out.  Along with waiting to see what happens with several permanent job openings that I've been submitted for.

2. For all the assorted commissioned work that continues to come in this year.

You have such a great way with scraps, making use of absolutely everything. BTW, could I ask you to update your list of links as shown in my email and post, since a number of people have dropped out, and we have a new member? Thanks!
