One of the ideas/plans that I had listed for the NewFO Challenge was to do something scrappy—Scrap Happiness, I called it—and that is what I focused on this month. It worked out well, because I had also joined the Sew Scraps Along at Pleasant Home for the month of January.
So here is what I did:
1. Made a Scrappy String Ring wall hanging. I'm going to continue making these Dresden plate type blocks in the coming months for a quilt. In fact, I joined the String Thing Along, and the scrappy string ring quilt is going to be my project for that.
2. Double Hourglass table mat. Made with some bright, fruit and veggie print scraps.
3. Scrappy Courthouse Steps block...
...which became a sewing machine cover...
...and what was left of the original block got "rebuilt" into a mini quilt!
