As lockdown continues here, I’ve had lots more time to play with my favourite scraps!

 

I’ve been needing a little mat to place under the tray that sits on my oak table.  I also love the process of making ‘stacked coins’ from scrappy strips.

 

So put the two together and what do you get? My free Scrappy Table Topper Tutorial!

The tutorial will take you through how to make the stacked coin columns – they can be any size you wish, maximising the size of scraps you have.

You will also see how to quilt the topper using a quilting bar – that weird looking ‘allen key’ type bar that languishes in your accessories tray!  It’s a really handy little gadget, and will save you lots of marking out time!

I also show you how to make and finish off the binding by ‘stitching in the ditch’ from the front side.

This is a really quick little project, and you can make these pretty and functional mats any size you like!  I now have several of them dotted around my house, bringing me joy each time my eye catches some of my favourite fabrics.

I hope you enjoy the tutorial.  We are getting better with each one that we make, and we have more planned!

 

Happy sewing!

Happy Thursday everyone!

Summer seems to have relocated around these parts, so in an attempt to bring you lots of summer colour and happiness, check out my Summer Starburst Quilt!

This started out as a ‘scrap buster’ project, after I got enquiries on how to use larger pieces of scraps (less than a fat quarter metre).

The design is based on the arrow-head block (half square triangles and squares), and you could easily change the colourways to suit whatever you have in your stash.

I really love the ‘colour splat’ effect from the rounds of colour – it makes me smile and think of a warm, hot summer (a girl can dream)!
This pattern is available in the July issue of Popular Patchwork, and it made front cover!! Woohoo!

Isn’t the styling gorgeous!  Loving the cute bike!
So what I want to know is, do you like scrappy projects? How do you use your scraps?  And what’s the smallest size you keep?
Looking forward to hearing from you,
