Here is the first quilt in the scrapbook:
The Siggy Block Remake
This is what happens when someone sends Margaret's Hope Chest their unwanted signature blocks.
I tear then apart and rebuild. I made up this pattern myself-although it is far from original. If you want to know how I did it-leave a comment and if more than one person comments I will draw a diagram and post it :)
I really enjoyed making this pieced backing
I used every scrap from the siggy blocks--I am quite proud of that fact and I think Amanda Jean will be quite pleased with my fabric frugality.
Here is a close up of the quilting--just random straight line quilting because well, that is the only stitch my machine will agree to do lately. I tried to talk my husband into a new machine about a week ago but we have some MAJOR moving expenses in our near future that he was kind enough to remind me of so it was a no go. Oh well, I guess this summer I will also prove what you can do with a half functioning sewing machine!
Here is the Summer Scrapbook Collage as of today.....
If you want to join me in creating a Summer Scrapbook let me know--I have never done the whole Mr. Linky thing before but I would like to try it if there is enough interest. I can also help you make a collage on the Picnik site if you need guidance.
Have a wonderful week--and come back soon to see our BLOG MAKEOVER!
