I have been poking through my stash looking for yellow fabric. Yellow and orange always seem to be in short supply in my sewing room. During this year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I have been envious of Sharon V's Garlic Knot blocks. I finally decided to make some of my own. I used the tutorial offered by Angela (the hostess of the RSC) on her Super Scrappy blog. I changed the size by using some of the 2.5 strips I had in my stash. My version finishes at 8 inches instead of the original 6 inches. Angela has lots of tutorials for six inch blocks that work well to use up scraps.
I made a few more blocks from the Dottie pattern and more four patches for my collection.
I enjoyed making the Knot blocks so much that I made them in other colors.
I also finished another scrappy top with blocks I made last summer. I loved being able to use lots of 2 inch scrap strips.
My stylish new footwear has been keeping me close to home so I have extra time to sew. I've gotten through the first week of the six week period. I have a different style to wear while I sleep. Hopefully, my Achilles tendon will heal and I will be able to avoid surgery. In the meantime, please don't ask me to dance.So Scrappy. As usual, there are lots of great projects to see.
