Welcome back to Scrap Basket Sunday!
Like I mentioned last week, I didn’t have a lot of time to commit to this week’s Scrap Basket Sunday but I did manage to finish curving the other half of the leaves. So now the quilt top is finally done, wahoo! Next week I’ll try to figure out backing fabric and baste the quilt top, batting and backing so it’s all ready to start quilting.
Time for another Scrap Basket Sunday!
I wasn't able to get a whole lot done this weekend since I have a lot going on. But that's why I created Scrap Basket Sunday - to make sure I make at least a tiny bit of progress on a UFO every week.
Welcome to the 2nd edition of Scrap Basket Sunday!
I recently switched from reading my blogs via Blogger to reading them from BlogLovin and it really is much better. Now I feel like I can have more blogs in there without feeling overwhelmed because it lets you sort them by category (for me, I have sewing blots, fitness blogs, etc) and you can quickly mark posts as read and it will gray them out! This way it only highlights new posts from each blog but you can still easily click on a blog and see all the old posts if you want. Anyways, because I’ve added more blogs that I’m following now, I noticed a lot of the sewing blogs are doing Scrap Basket Sunday where they use their scrap fabrics to make blocks (and eventually quilts). I want to start in but I still have so many other unfinished projects that I want to finish. I decided I am still going to do Scrap Basket Sunday but here’s how mine will work:
First, I’ll choose an unfinished project (not customer’s projects or planned gifts, has to be a project for me or us or just for fun). Then each Sunday, I am going to commit to doing at least a LITTLE bit of work on that project until it’s finished (and then I can choose a new project). I’m not going to define how much I need to do each week or I have a feeling I’ll quickly get overwhelmed and stop doing it. So whether it’s 5 minutes or 5 hours, any time I have to put towards that project counts!
I decided to start with one of the sewing expo projects that is on my design wall called Tumbling Leaves. I first posted about it right after the expo (click the pic to read more):
