SCRAPS

Scraps o how i love them, when i take them in my hands, yarn or fabric i love the way it makes me feel like my brain is exploding with beautiful creating powers, when i see colors coming together but not together and at the end of this beautiful organic process i have created something so wonderful to the naked eye. Thank you for stopping by i would love to hear how you take on your scraps.

Quilting Block

Christmas 2017 I made my son a quilt he loves Marvel/football so i decide to use a block that is called the Exploding block from Missouri star quilt company, where you take two 4′ square fabric and place them right side together and on the side you want the block to open up that’s the side you put your lines from corner to corner(top right to bottom right and left top to bottom left) then sew 1/4 stitch all around the square, once that’s finish take the side that have the line’s on it and cut through one square, then pressing the corners open it goes from a 4′ square to a 5′ square you can go as big a your heart desire, if you like to keep going just put a 5′ square on top and follow the same directions and it will become a 6′ block. Hope you give it a try i had fun doing this block, thank you for stopping by.

Making a Quilt

In 2016 I decide to make my oldest son a quilt for Christmas, he is a big movie buff. I wanted it to look like a film strip so I went to pinterest and found a blank film strip and download it to my computer, then I download his favorite movie images as well, once I had all of them I place the movie image in the blank film strip one at a time adding and delete the movie image each time and printing it out. On my journey looking for fabric sheets at a reasonable price, I was in Joann’s and i over heard two lady’s talking about Freezer paper and how it sticks to fabric and you can reuse it, in that moment the light bub went off and my mind went crazy I have found or heard what I was looking for, now I know that people have been using this for a long time to quilt, I am so happy I over heard those lady’s talking it

change my life. Here are some pictures of my quilt I hope it will inspire you to try it .
