Tiny Blue Scraps

I have been diligently working on my RSC blocks - so I can give you a grand reveal.... and in the process I made a bunch of tiny scraps.... how does that happen?

So!  I decided to stitch them together and make hot pads- I even used Insul-brite!



And yes - the do not have the binding, hanger on them - give me a year...
I'll get to it ;-)

I also have decided that Sticks 2 is not finished.



Little Bit - who I look up to now - 
held it up for me to photograph.
I decided then it was not finished
I made a plan

and then I have been running around our state like a chicken....
it's been crazy - 


Check in with other Scrappy progress at

And on Sunday head to:
for Oh Scrap!!

Love the idea of using up scraps for hot pads. Those would make some nice gifts for the cooks in the family. You could add a fun cup and some cocoa for the non-cooks...they'd have a nice mug rug.

You quilt looks finished, so I'm curious what the plan is!

Those potholders are wonderful. What a great way to use up even more scraps. Love them!

Hmm! Now what can you be up to for the Sticks Quilt? Great little hot pads.

I love sticks 2 and now I'm puzzling out possible additions to your quilt!

regarding the pot holders or hot pads .. I've used cup hooks (yes, I think they are old timey things) and sew them to back of the pot holders. they are round white -- they the hot pad is grungy and you want to throw it out, those little cup hooks are still nice and can be re-used! Yep, save a whole cent or two! 8-)))

I don't mind the binding process... I rather like making the binding itself. It's the tedious hand stitching. Mine never lays nicely. I've started to sew on the back first by machine, then turn it and sew the front by machine, too. It turns out quite nice - especially if I use my walking foot.
Love the sticks, but Little Bit is headless.... did you notice? We wouldn't mind seeing his handsomeness atop the quilt. I doubt any of the girls at his school read your blog, so he doesn't need to be embarrassed.

Love your scrappy hot pads. They will make great gifts.
Looking forward to seeing what more you do with your blue quilt top.

Cynthia Brunz Designs said...

I am curious too. What can you be up to now!

Kate said...

You must be getting some of those scrap bins empty with all the use you are getting out of your blue scraps. Looking forward to seeing what you decide to do with Sticks.

Linda said...

Nice use of your blue scraps.

Isn't it funny how we just know when something isn't finished? Pretty blues.

Hot pads is a great use of the scraps that come from using up scraps. It is funny how that happens, isn't it?
