Bits and Pieces

I was kind of hoping I could finish another quilt last weekend, especially since 12 inches of fresh snow kept us inside most of the time. However, snow melting after the sun came back out flooded our window well again, and I spent most of Sunday bailing water. Ugh.

We did finally get an estimate on gutter replacement, and it turns out... we need a new roof. The gutters will be replaced, too. And that should take care of our basement waterfall. Let's hope.

In the meantime, I was able to wash Scrap Gobbler, and I love it even more now. The rough-edge appliqué came out so much better than I anticipated!

Perhaps I needed a tiny break from quilting; I enjoyed piecing the backing for the next Moda Blockheads 2 block.

I finished a few more houses for my Scrappy I-Spy Neighborhood.

And I finished three more scrappy blue log cabins. These may eventually become another WIP, but for right now, it's just another project to use up my strip scraps and leftovers. I still have two more blue scrap collections representing solids and textures, so I may have to try to come up with an alternate log cabin layout so this will be big enough to become at least a lap quilt.

Linking up with Alycia Quilts.


  1. Ohboy! A new roof!!! Love the blocks you are pieceing! and the crinkleness ( thats a word right?) of your washed quilt!

    1. Crinkleness... I love it! Thanks, Alycia!
