This is the third wedding quilt I have completed for 2020. What makes this the year of weddings?
It isn’t fancy, but I hope the new family will enjoy cuddling on the couch. When I don’t know people super well, and I want to surprise them, a couch quilt is better than a bed quilt.
Scrappy of course. Using THIS tutorial (Thanks, Cluck Cluck Sew).
It is for a third grade teacher from my school. May it bring them joy!
The second Cow Quilt is finished. For the second son of my cousin.
Thanks to Sew Fresh Quilts, I had the adorable pattern to work with.
And a perfect back.
Sometimes it all comes together. YAY!
It was time to start a new leader-ender project. It has become such a habit to have fabric under the needle constantly that I feel a little lost without one.
I wanted to use up more of the small background scraps that were threatening to take over, so I have started to sort them and cut them small: 1-1/2″ squares.
That is a size I also precut as colored scraps after I clean up after projects, so there were enough in the bin to get started.
I am no sure where this will go in the end, but I am happy with the start. So far there are about 40 16-patch block finishing at 4-1/2″ square…

There are some disadvantages to having a highly organized scrap system. One is that you can be struck in a moment with a new idea and immediately grab fabric and GO!
That is what happened with my new project: Black and Bright.
I was looking at my blacks scrap bin, which overflowed. (Several of the 2019 quilts had black in them, which had created an abundance of scraps.) And, pouf! An idea.
Here it is in progress…more details coming soon.
