sewing on the weekend

Jacky and I cancelled our screen room sewing
Jacky had a bad cold and there was
a threat of maybe a shower
I went in my sewing room by myself instead
(I KNOW! sniff sniff.... well Dunkin kept me company....)

remember the slab stars?
(how could you forget those pretties)

well, this was the cut offs and I didnt want to
waste anyones fabrics

I KNOW.........
I AM BAD like that......just ask Jacky!
when I come over her house she nails
down her scraps! LOL
and her bouncer hubs meets me at the door
and frisks me on the way out
just to be sure.........ha ha

anywho, I grabbed these little slab starts
and started slabbing AGAIN........
with dark blues this time surrounding them.......

and I made some "blocks" around 12 inches wide or so
and joined them into one long

see those cute little cutoffs?

peeking out here and there

all the way across the back


and once I put this backing on my slab runner
and handquilt er up
(yes it is for ME so I will keep as a winter project
to keep my hands out of the cookie jar- cant eat
cookies and hand quilt. the chocolate will get all over
the quilt top, right?)

 and I hope I have inspired YOU
to use up those pieces of fabric
and make something pretty and fun

(or if  you still dont like them, send them along
to ME
I will use them up.......heck playing in other peoples
stash is so so fun)

missed you Jacky...........hope you feel better soon!

Nice work with those leftovers (notice how so many quilting terms use food terms??) anyhoo, I like how this turned out...and by the way if you want to eat chocs and sew/quilt...just put a handy wipe next to your basket--ask me how I know hahaha hugs (mouth full) Julierose

Beautiful pairing of your slab blocks with a pretty star block. This will look fabulous all together. Yeah, try as I might, snacks do sneak into the sewing room somehow; that handy wipe idea above is a good one.

You are my kind of quilter!! I absolutely LOVE playing in other people's fabric scraps. Nothing better!

I should give slab quilting a try again. I really like what you did with all those pretty blue scraps. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

Looks gorgeous. Oh Jackie feel better, I am sorry you had to spend the day with Dunkin....but if it makes you feel any better I had to spend the day with Lucy.

I love seeing what comes out of others scraps. Nice work.

It's always nice to use leftovers. Or as I call it "fall out of the fridge." or in this case "fall out of the scrap basket." You did well!!

Haha, I love the part about Jacky's bouncer hubby.

Hope she feels better now!
