WIP Wednesday: Endless Scraps


I’m saving most of my good stuff for blog posts that you’ll see over the next few days! But I’ve been working away on a couple of projects lately.

My scrap quilt. It. Is. On. After much thought, I’m going ahead with an Irish Chain quilt, but I’m making a bazillion teeny blocks out of a gazillion even-teenier squares because … I enjoy a good trial by fire? What my summer really needed was more monotony? I don’t know. But I think it will be pretty darn cool when it’s done. Oh, and did I mention it’s going to be a color-spectrum quilt? Well, of course it is.

Also. This was happening. Most of Tuesday afternoon, in fact, this was happening. The girls are in a kids’ quilting bee this year (you may have already seen this post about it on Faith’s blog). This month, both of my girls made star blocks! I’ll post more about that next week.

And finally, the kitchen is coming along—I’m currently midway through my second coat of paint. This is where the monotony really comes in. But it’s looking amazing and I love it! So much lighter and brighter in there. Still, painting fatigue is starting to set in and I’ve got a loooong way to go. I think I’d far rather sew a bazillion teeny squares.

So who’s bringing you all this WIP-py goodness today? It’s my newest sponsor, Dinkydoo Fabrics!

Dinkydoo is located in Canada, which means two things:
1. If you’re in Canada: Score!
2. If you’re in the U.S.: Still score! Because Dinkydoo actually gets certain fabric lines months in advance, including Moda. And you can take advantage of the strong U.S. dollar to get great bargains.

Also, Dinkydoo has the new Cotton + Steel lines coming in very soon. And they have a cute zebra as their mascot. Pretty much all the major requirements of a good fabric shop. So get on over there and show them some WIP Wednesday love.

GIVEAWAY: This week, Dinkydoo is offering an amazing prize package: A layer cake and a charm pack of Modern Background – Ink by Zen Chic, plus a box of 100 Clover flower pins! (This contest is open to U.S. and Canadian readers only, sorry.) The Modern Background lines are perfection for scrappy quilts!

    Although I have several WIPs going, last night I decided I really needed to cut more squares to make more hexagons. So I had piles of scraps and fabrics all over the place. I've contained it all again this morning though.

    I recently finished a scrap quilt with 1.5" squares, and just started another one! I think there's something about making something out of essentially nothing that's exciting and challenging. Can't wait to see how yours turns out!
