Putting the Pieces Together!

 I pieced the second blues quilt and then tackled this odd assortment--
I had to do some trimming to make them work but it works!
 And then the fun could begin--I cut out the butterfly fabric 
to go with this pile of leftover tumblers I had in the stash.
 The butterfly fabric is left over from a quilt I made granddaughter, Ella, for her birth 7 years ago!
 Does anyone piece some blocks when making a scrap quilt when you need 4 more blocks 
and there isn't big enough chunks of fabric to pull that off?!
Sometimes I can match up the print perfectly....
and sometimes not 
but it is a busy enough print that this won't bug me.

I am building up a pile of finished tops and I don't have large enough pieces for the backing...
next week we will try the fabric store.


  1. Wow...that's a lot done! I was proud of myself when I managed to get half of a block done this week. My time management has been pretty bad during all this isolation stuff. I have no idea what I am doing all day but it's not much to brag about anymore. Lol..

  2. The butterfly fabric is so cute.

  3. Oh yes, I’ve pieced fabric together when at piece is not quite large enough. Often after quilting, it’s. It that noticeable.

  4. They look great! And I wouldn't have noticed your piecing if you hadn't pointed it out.

  5. I love scrappy quilts. They are so unexpected -- and one of a kind.
    The gumdrop quilt is really fun. I have pieced squares together like that!

  6. I do try to match the prints when I have to seam, but you are right, sometimes it just doesn't work! But so cute none the less!

I couldn't wait to sample a bit of the newly carded wool by using my favorite drop spindle.  Since it had been a few years since I used ...
