Scrap and Schnap


I quilted a warm up swatch. It’s about 40″x30″. It’s cotton flannel on both sides.   I figured I could accomplish a few things all at once:

  • I could get back in the free form groove, doodle,  and work out some kinks. ( I usually doodle first on newspaper before starting with the thread and fabric, but I was feeling confident, and jumped into it)
  • I could tune up the sewing machine and get the thread tension stuff all worked out before starting on a humongous thing. (I don’t know if you can tell that things are better on the left than the right)
  • AND I could make a quilt for Schnap-the-Co-Quilter so that she could sit on and enjoy it without me yanking it out from under her. (Seriously, this has become a game for her now. Schnap sits on quilts and swatches and I try to yank them out from under her sort of like the magicians trick of pulling a tablecloth out from under a fully set table.)

Successful results were attained on the first two items.  Not so much on the third. Schnap would have none of the smaller quilt.

The Co-Quilter prefers a larger more expansive quilt (84″x96″)

    Gorgeous quilting design. That is one thing that I find unsatisfying about quilts – the lovely quilting which comes in so many wonderful designs is often completely lost amidst the beautiful colors and patterns of the pieced materials. At least there is often a plain backside where it can be appreciated!

    Sadly, there’s no plain backside on the crazy scrap quilt. It’s about as busy as the front only with bigger pieces. If you look closely, you can see the quilting…sort of. I think I did the crazy floral mish-mosh mostly to get my doodle urges out.
