Slow and steady....  I have worked a little bit on my Polka Dot Bikini QAL. I made half of all the surrounding blocks (20 blocks) and now need to make the scrappy blocks together so that I can cut them in a curve and sew on my finished part. whew! Lots of piecing and curves for me. It is starting to come together and I think all the scraps will be Kaffe Fassett fabric scraps. I have truly been hitting my stash piles this year. Woop Woop!


The 16 center blocks were finished last week I just have not put them together. Waiting for any adjustments I might need. 

And because it is not enough to have at least 3 other projects in the works on my table, I decided to tackle an idea for these color scraps. 

 Most are less than 3/4ths of an inch wide. I have an idea I think I want to do with the rainbow colors and gray. Giving it a go. The scraps came from some gals that were at my guilds sew day. The use of these in something is a challenge so we will see what I come up with. ???

  1. I love that bikini quilt QAL and glad to see what great progress you've made! And as far as making quilts out of scraps. . . I just posted the two I made from scraps. It is addicting to saving all those bits and pieces, isn't it?

  2. Those are some great blocks, feels like summer on the beach with a rainbow of little strings left over. Oh string bikini ;)

  3. Your blocks are sew pretty, Kris! I love the pieced curves. Those scrappy bits are very pretty. I am intrigued!

  4. I love how it's mostly solid with just a little peek into the loud prints. Very neat idea! Good work.

  5. Can't wait to see what you'll do with those skinny strings! Your curved piecing looks good.
