This is Joy Miller’s Baby ---Poor guy! Doesn’t he look neglected??
He reminds me so much of my Buddy, the golden we lost a few years back. He lived a good long life, and oh how we loved him so!
He was always in the midst of my fabric chaos, just as this guy is!
Thinking of you today! Sitting and deboning a stack of shirts. My son lost 100 pounds and pulled out shirts to donate. I grabbed the cotton and flannel ones! Too fun! My dog is enjoying the process.I’ve got a hankering to pull out the scrap strips from recycled clothing as well and put it to good use…
Remember me mentioning that Auntie Bonnie has a baby quilt to make? I have a nephew on the way, making his debut in January!
And actually, I need TWO Baby quilts…because my friend Harriet is expecting her 2nd baby, another girl…due in December! We just saw them in Texas just before leaving on the cruise..more on that later.
But for now…I need 9 patches!
In a hurry!
My bin doesn’t have a lot of variety!
So I ironed out some shirt parts and cut them on the Accuquilt Studio with the 2” die.
Nice and freshly cut!
Always run a test seam!
I had to place a new guide on my machine since the sticky wears off every once in a while due to machine oil and fuzz and lint. I always run a test seam just to make sure. Two 2” strips sewn with a proper seam should give me 3.5” across the strip set. It does!
Now for the real test..add a third strip:
Three 2” strips should equal 5”…and it does! I’m good to go!
Let’s make these ultra scrappy!
I’ll be here, sewing away on my 1957 Atlas – making strip sets of three, just playing with color and contrast, not thinking light/dark placement…these are everything goes, anywhere it wants to.
