SCRAP REPORT FOR APRIL

My time to spend on the Scrap Attack was limited this month because we were out of town for 2 weeks and 3 days.  However, I did take my Featherweight sewing machine along on the trip and while I was visiting my sister, I used the sewing room (which was a tiny room off of the master bedroom that my grandpa added when he built the house about 70 years ago) to make some scrappy blocks.

You can see some scrappy blocks towards the front of the picture.

Scrappy blue and white snowball blocks
 My goal for the month was to make more blocks for the  Bow-Dacious quilt that I am making - it's a Bonnie Hunter design.  I'm not sure how many I made this month, but my guess is about 8.


 Each block has about 53 pieces in it.  Each block is made up of 4 smaller blocks.  I might make less of the blocks than the pattern calls for because it will be for a twin bed.  The pieces are pretty small - a lot of 1 1/2" squares.  You can see my sewing table below.


Next month, this will be my goal.


Well, I will do my best!!

What a neat little place to sew and recall fond memories of your grandpa and other family members, including your sister! Your snowballs and Bow-Dacious blocks are looking great, and I have no doubt you'll get your scrappy donation quilt made for May. Have fun! ---"Love"

For being gone half the month, it sure looks like you got a bunch done! Does your sister quilt? I'm lucky to have one that does! The bow ties block looks fun, even though there are little bitty pieces to wrangle. And your challenge for the month sounds fun - lots of possibilities!

I think it was very smart of you to take your machine along for a trip of that length. You need a little therapy along the way.
Snowball blocks just seem so "right" in blue and white.
Those are really fancy bow tie blocks--lots of fun detail.
