More Scrappy!

Another small baby quilt made from strip scraps. These are more of the strip scraps that I cut a couple of weeks ago following Pleasant Home's blog on using up our scraps. It is a small quilt only about 34 inches square but I made it to fit the piece of yellow minke that I had left over from another quilt. Of course....I still have lots of these scraps left over so I'll be making more things out of them in the future.

I will be taking a week or two off from blogging. I am having surgery Monday morning and will be in the hospital for a few days. As I understand, I will probably not feel much like blogging or anything else for a few days. But I have sewn the bindings on a couple of quilts so while I'm sitting around doing nothing I can hand stitch the bindings so I won't go completely bonkers from being away from my sewing machine.

The only thing wrong with doing nothing is that I won't know when I'm done! ( a quote from Linda at Stray Stitches blog).


See you in a couple of weeks. Happy Quilting! Lynda

Best of luck to you. When I had surgery, I took two weeks off to do nothing, and I pretty much accomplished that.

Marsha said...

Take care ... the binding will still be there when you are fully recovered! Don't rush it ....
