Scrappy Saturday!


I got to play with fabric today :) I am more than thrilled. Being at school is like torture sometimes. Even though it can be frustrating, sewing and anything related to it relaxes me.

I decided to start on our wedding quilt, for October 2012. I also definitively decided it's going to be 12 dresden plates on a white background, each one a different color (and one for each month of the year, and of the scrap challenge :)).

The sad truth is, because I'm still building my stash, I don't have many big scraps. Which means I had to cut into other FQs and the like. But, I'm really glad because it will make the quilt even prettier if I get to use some of my favorite fabrics!

I used some of my winnings from Red Pepper Quilts - Soul Blossoms:

The ironic part was that cutting out of non-scraps made more scraps. But that's okay.

And for the color "blue" this month, made this (no pressing or sewing yet):


The two guitar pieces are in there just for my fiance. I snuck them in and actually think they go really well.

I'm really excited for this quilt.

I also finally hung up my mom's scrappy wall hanging over the oven:







What did you make today?
