Using small fabric scraps

Fabric scraps of even the smallest size (1" x 1") can be sewn together to become the starting point  of beautiful patchwork.

Recently, I have been adding to the collection of my low volume fabric scrap stash, thanks to using fabrics that read as white, to the quilt blocks I have been sewing. I love when those scraps accumulate!  Sewing scraps together is something that I have been enjoying for years and when I say I like to use up even the tiniest bits, I am not exaggerating.

Parade of Scrappy Star Blocks - Rainbow Bee

My first Scrappy Star Block for 2021!

January 2020, I started the year choosing the Scrappy Star Block (click here for Jennie's tutorial) for my bee mates to sew for me as it was my turn as Queen Bee. I sewed two sample blocks to guide the ladies, as I wanted the stars in one colour (with each star to be a different colour) and the background fabrics to be a low volume mix of whimsical prints.

Home Sweet Home Sewing


Imagine my delight when I was contacted this past summer to take part in a virtual book tour to promote a beautiful new sewing book, written by the lovely,  Helen Philipps.  I have long been a fan of Helen's sewing and her gorgeous books, so you know I said, "Yes, please!", to her kind invite.  Home Sweet Home Sewing, published this past autumn, by @tuvapublishing is bursting with a charming array of patchwork projects, ranging from an adorable pincushion to a beautiful quilt and all enticingly presented.

Simple Strappy Pencil Case

A pretty and practical solution for corralling pens and pencils!

Maybe you're like me and have a collection of notebooks and writing/drawing paraphernalia that you like to tote around? Do you find yourself searching for a way to keep things organized and ready to use?
