So the results are in :) I had hoped to get all the scraps cut down but that didn't happen. But sometimes it is a good reminder that this is a hobby and I quilt because I love to! This is what I did do!
And these are the scraps still waiting to get cut :). To be fair I did get a lot cut. I had two bags and extra when I started
And this smile makes it all worth it. Little man is going to preschool in a month, he needed a quilt and a pillowcase and minions are his favorite :)
Pattern moda bakeshop (modified) and fabric one in a minion.
I have been slowly cutting away and although it might not seem like less I actually managed to fit all my small scraps that have not been sorted into one plastic bag yay! My trusty helper felt like I needed to cut some more however and helped me get some out ;)
So here is an easier way to see my accomplishments so far! Here are my scrappy tumblers last week I had one row
And theses are my 1.5" projects estimated time of completion 2032 lol
Since I had my adorable baby girl I haven't really had time (three kids will do that I suppose ) Either way the scraps have been piling up. Unsorted and un cut! Well Jo issued a challange to finish something up, and I accepted! My goal is to cut as much as I can up into tumblers and 2" squares.. and some 1.5" too!
This year I decided to make the mystery quilt again :). It is a fun project and when made in pieces it seems more manageable and less likely to become a wip (work in progress) and then be left in the sewing closet forever lol. I changed the colors so did a lot of other quilters. Mainly because this quilt is a chance to clear the stash.
Here is the link to all the beautiful quilts that have been made from Bonnie Hunter's beautiful pattern
And here is my quilt :). It is going in our baby girls room, which is currently the guest room (she is due in 10 days yay)
I have a backing for the quilt as well... but a certain dog (my father in laws) decided to mark it as his with pee! (Good thing he is cute)
I hope that I can save the backing by washing it gently and hang dry
