Here a little lap quilt I just finished.
This is the January block for Scrappy Challenge 2014 from Judy Laquidara.
The challenge is to use scraps and NOT make another UFO.
The idea is to make blocks (from scraps) until about 10 days before the due date and at that time, use however many blocks were made and finish the project. She says if you only made one block, make a hot pad or pot holder, etc.
I love piecing and using scraps and sometimes I just want to sew, sew, sew.
This is Judy's pattern “Big T”:
I used up this flannel from my stash for the back of the quilt.
I finally got to use up some blue print that was used in at least two other quilts. I used it for the outside border, a strip on the back and the binding. Bye, bye blue print.
