Scrappy Sunday

i might not get to complete my block this Sunday. but wanted to show you some other scrappiness i have been working on.i picked out fabric to make sashing & posts for my Scrappy Sunday quilt. i think they're pretty. luv lime green. & when it's mixed with burgandy & white. can you tell i grew up in the 70's. oh yeah. and i finally decided to hand quilt my Bento Box that i made in a class probably a year ago.

i was supposed to stitch-in-ditch on machine. but i just don't like the awkwardness of machine quilting. & my new machine didn't come with a walking foot. & my old walking foot that i can't find they said would not work on the new machine. let's see don't really want to do it & it cost $100 for the foot i really don't want to use. it was an easy decision. so after doing my Summer Stash Challenge quilt with Perle 8 thread. i decided that i should do it again.

presto i already had one ready with pins in place. thought i was going to use a beige variegated color or a sage green. but just in case i was wrong i dragged it to the embroidery store to find thread color & i just had to pick this pinky peachy one. it's a perfect match for the backing so you can't see all my incomplete stitches that you get on back because needle, thread, & batting are so thick.

Love the artful dodge of having your thread the same colour as your backing fabric. Well done! Looking forward to seeing the projects all finished.

Finally heard from DD so all is right in the world again. LOL
