Scrap Happy Summer Parade

I am sad to report that Em's Scrap Happy Summer Challenge has come to an end. Of course this doesn't mean that I will stop making things with my scraps! I will keep playing around with even the tiniest of fabric pieces to make something new.

So for the finale. Here is my Scrap Happy Summer Parade.

I have made several more of the strip blocks. They are not sewn together yet, but I hope to have them done soon. With Mimi's help I should be able to make a quilt out of these.
On previous posts I have already shown you some of the other scrap projects that I have been working on. Here are a few of them. The small flowers, the 2 1/2 inch crumb block quilt, the picnic quilt, the klosjes and the red and blue blocks and the 3 1/2 inch crumb blocks.


























I haven't shown you a photo of my ongoing flower garden for awhile. These are the larger flowers. I think this one is almost done to the flimsy stage. I am not sure how big I will make it. I guess I will stop when the flowers become boring or if I run out of scraps. So far there is no sign of either of that.
And finally for today I want to share with you the row I made for the Row Robin Barb is hosting. I used some of my scraps and some of the fabric that came with this row. The theme for this quilt is springtime.
Go on over to Em's Scrapbag and see what others did this summer.

You have made some beautiful things with scraps. Maybe you need to make one small piece with a little of each in it as a recap of the summer.

Your string quilt....did you use a foundation? and if yes, was it paper or cloth? Beautiful work.

What a lovely colorful post today Hetty! It is amazing what wonderful quilts scraps can make and it does feel good to use them all up.

Everyone has been so busy making quilt tops and pretty banners and all sorts of things. My summer has just slipped by me in a fog of hospital and illness and taking care of everything else besides sewing. Maybe Fall will be better.

Hetty, these quilts are fantastic! I love your colors and all the different patterns you made. Just georgous!
Plus you have a cat that looks identical to mine! Only my Tika kitty is a boy - he gets called a girl all the time. Its the pink ears!
Great Post!

You have turned all those scraps into true works of art!!! Keep up the good work....but...I don't know whether to be inspired by you OR intimidated as I don't think I could turn my scraps into anything even half as nice! LOL

Mimi was in the background watching over you.
She felt it was time to show herself and join all these beautifully colored pieces of scraps turned into amazing quilts.

That is a lot of lovely projects. It seems that the more you do with scraps the more are left. Keep going ;-)
