scrap a day 7

 This one is was on Sewing with Nancy. Here's the link.

 It was simple and fast to make.
 I quilted it with a simple x pattern.

 This one is the gal that showed me the pattern! I like that it has more contrast so if I make another one I'll do that.
You don't see this to often on Nov 11th! I looked out my front door and just had to take a picture!! He is helping build a grain bin.......JMF

scrap a day 6

 I'm getting close to the end of my finished scrap quilts.
 This one was another pinterst find although I might have not followed the instructions exactly!

 After while  I just started sewing then just made it all work by cutting or adding as I needed too.
 It's done and it used scraps so that's good enough for me:)

Scrap a day 5

 I'm almost done with my scrap quilts! Well maybe not yesterday I was cutting and ironing scraps:)
 I used some more western prints in this one. I just finished quilting it last week.
 Hopefully it will keep some baby warm someday!
 I just finished the book Wonder. Lucas was telling me about because his class is reading it together. It is a good book and the movie is coming out next week. So he painted his pumpkin after the cover of the book. Pretty good Lucas!!

Scrap-a-day 4

 This one was a fun and easy one as long as you paid attention when cutting them to size. I mean by not cutting off the seam allowance!
 What makes you think I did that??
When that happens make a potholder!!
I haven't decided if I will make this one bigger so am not going to quilt it just yet.
I thought this was funny I hope my sisters do too!!........JMF

Scrap a day 3.....

 I used alot of my western fabric scraps on this one.
 It was another Pinterst pattern. I should have went back and found them again so I could have shared them.
 I still could and put them in the next post:)
 It was a fast and easy pattern.
 My Jade plant is getting so big I don't know how I would ever get it transplanted to a new pot. It's been in that one for years and is probably root bound.

A scrap a day 2...............

 I found this one on Pinterst also. The center squares are denim cut 61/2 in and the cotton squares are 21/2.
 It was easy and went together fast.
 I backed it with a piece that was given to me.
 Scraps and free fabric what could be better:)

A scrap a day....

 My goal this summer was to use up my scraps from all my quilting. I searched Pinterst for scrap patterns and found a few I liked.
 This one makes a small baby quilt.

 I had enough of that animal fabric for each of the center blocks.
I just did a simple straight line quilting. It's a fast quilt to piece if you need a baby gift.
It was the first of several scrap quilts I made. The only thing is that I still have as many if not more scraps to use!!!......JMF
