Wedding Quilt #3 For 2020

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!

 

Leader-Ender

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…

New Project: Black And Bright

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.
