Scrappy Scraps.

I posted earlier about our cross country trek from Boston to Los Angeles. My plan was to hand sew hexagons to make a scrappy quilt while spending hundreds of hours in the car.

Well, in the last week our plans have changed. As we still don’t have an apartment in Los Angeles we thought it would be better to fly out and use our time apartment hunting and buying a car rather than sightseeing. I’m actually very excited about this because I am looking forward to finding a new “home” to settle in, but now I’m kind of bummed about my hexagon project.

After my blog post I was so grateful that people sent me scraps for my scrappy quilt (I don’t have very many scraps of my own yet as I have only been quilting for about 6 months).  I am planning on still making my hexagon project (just not on a cross country trek, it will now likely be while sitting in traffic in Los Angeles).

Here are the wonderful scraps I received:

My sister cut all these squares out of fabric she had at home during her 8th month of pregnancy (in the humidity). What an amazing sister! (take a peek at Elliot).

 

Alexis from the Boston Modern Quilt Guild brought me these scraps to our meeting last Saturday. Aren’t they adorable!?

These are from Kathryn, a nurse at Hennepin County Medical Center. She used her Accuquilt GO! Baby Fabric Cutter to cut these 2.5 inch squares. Someday I might need to add one to my collection.

Thanks again! I am very grateful.
