Scrap-Happy - February 2023

 Lots of scrappy fun happening this month thanks to getting the commissioned cheerleader quilt (2nd of 2 quilts for that customer) finished up.

In no particular order, I made a little bow tie for a stuffed peacock for Valentine's Day for a friend.   Tie was from a scrap, elastic out of my stash.
Made a snuffle mat for the daughter of the quilty friend the first one was for.  Scraps of denim (the base), and remnants of fleece were used to make it.
I finished up three spring time ornaments.  These were long-time UFO's stitching/beading was done at least 10 yrs ago.   Backs were made from scrap wool felt in the stash.
More beaded and cross-stitched ornaments were completed.  These were long-time UFO's stitching/beading was done at least 10 yrs ago.   Backs were made from scrap wool felt in the stash.
Another UFO beaded piece was used to embellish this scrappy postcard made from strings on the top, and a scrap of striped fabric for the backing.
This postcard was also a UFO.   Scraps  used for top and back, with an iron-on applique embellishing the top.
More Black-on-White and White-on-Black scraps were used to make the Square-in-a-Square blocks with scrap squares of dog prints.  Still debating about what I want to use for the setting triangles.   Currently thinking about black tonal fabrics (remnants or scraps).  This will likely be a donation quilt.
This was the first of two mini wall-hangings I made this month for my cubicle at work.   The 3 floral pieces were UFO cross-stitch pieces.  All fabric and batting was from my scrap/remnant  stash.

Second mini wallhanging.  Center is a UFO cross-stitch piece that i'd designed and stitched a lot of years ago.   It was made with scraps bits of floss, seed beads, and little pearls.  All fabric and batting were from scraps.

This quilt top was put together with a yellow remnant printed with road signs.  the pieced panel  is from scraps and was found in a scrap barrel at one of the stores I used to love visiting in Texas.   When finished it'll be a donation somewhere.

And the final project of the month was finishing this scrappy quilt.  Leftover bits of binding was used to bind it.

Don't forget to check out what everyone else has done this month - 

1.  I'm loving my job at ASU, and so very thankful for my manager who has been very willig to work with me as I've been needing to do more things for my dad.

2.  For the time to be able to complete projects of my own.
