Up early, house picked up, bathroom clean, laundry done and the kid to school. A day off yesterday with rain showers and a sore throat…sounds like an excuse to sew to me.
Turns out never leaving my clean enough house and burning through the second season of Breaking Bad was the motivation I needed for sewing together a few hundred squares left over from Scrappy Sunshine.
I did add a few extra prints, but the rest were all leftovers. It certainly could have a better name, but it’s fitting.
I do love a charm quilt, no matter how simple they are, they live up to their name.
I plan on free motion quilting Leftovers with the same orange peel design I used on my Mom’s quilt and the cross quilt. My intension was to have a sample to compare to the cross quilt showing how value drives design.
Scrappy Sunshine has a quilt back too.
When Roan was a toddler he would crawl up onto my lap repeating, “I want to cuddle.” The saying has evolved into a question over the years.
My intension was to use Scrappy Sunshine in the summer, but I decided to go with flannel as usual for the back. If we continue to have the summers we have had here in the Pacific Northwest flannel shouldn’t be a problem.
