I already had gotten a bonus quilt from some of these scraps with the recent Drunken Monkeys baby quilt (yes, I did just call it that). That quilt may have a home soon if Norm finds out whether his coworker had a baby girl. She had a baby; that's all he knows so far. Guys are funny. We ladies might not only know the birth date and gender but also the first, middle, and last names, weight and length, how long of a labor, and whether it was induced, natural, or Cesarean, among other things.
Back to the scrap story, I played around with the petal shapes and soon I had this kind of thing going on. It reminded me of a Pyrex design, which only made me want to sew it together more, one way or another.
Here it is pinned to a background and I'm auditioning other fabrics to incorporate, thinking this could be a small table runner. After all, something cute should be underneath the vintage Pyrex.
Another thing in the
I decided not to fuse the petals down but instead just sew along the raw edges and down the centers to anchor them. I may go back and zigzag the edges (or not) before I quilt it.
Just a reminder, I am having a SALE on the Thoroughly Modern Lily quilt pattern, at 33% off the regular price now through Wednesday, December 4. Click the pattern link on the top right sidebar.
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I made five wild ducks (and two duck breasts) in the crock pots, and I bet if you made a turkey, your house smelled way better than mine. Nevertheless, they tasted very good and were appreciated by the whole crew, especially the hunters in the family.
Linking to Whoop-Whoop Friday at Sarah's place!
