So what did I figure out? We still have a fairly large wooden entertainment cabinet down there, and I realized I could drape a king-sized flannel sheet over the top of it, pin back the sides, and set a couple of heavy items on top to hold the sheet on, and it worked! Below you see my Scrap Vortex as it is right now, and I have loved being able to leave it up all week as I've added blocks to it so that I can see how it is developing.
My Scrap Vortex quilt is coming right along, and is about 40 x 50 right now. Still not big enough, so I keep working on adding on to it. I think of it as "building" a quilt!
This week, I also decided to join in a little paper-pieced quilt along with Faith at Fresh Lemons, and it will be a great use for scraps! She is generously sharing several paper-piecing patterns for some adorable spool blocks in a series she is calling "Fresh Spools." Week 1's block looks like this:
These blocks are finishing at 6 x 6 inches. I haven't done any paper-piecing since I finished up my And Sew On BoM quilt with Quiet Play back in 2013, and I had forgotten how fun it is! I'm looking forward to experimenting with different low volume backgrounds and colors for the spools themselves. I started with the blue for this spool because I have so much of it, and love the way it turned out!
Happy Sunday sewing to everyone! Linking up to Oh Scrap! at Quilting is More Fun than Housework.
