Default Clam scrap

The hurricane Matthew is over with now. We lost power for two nights and a day and it wasn't too bad as the weather was cool. I had my camp stove and was able to make coffee lol and we had battery operated fans so all is will again.

I was going to start to work on my clam ladies. Hubby came in to get the garbage and I had a some little scraps in the garbage that were going. I changed my mind and decided to pick the scraps out of the garbage lol. I was going to try something. I got some old dryer sheets I had saved and used those for a foundation. I started to sew the little scraps on them but instead of sew and turn. I sewed right on top, so I was able to sew any shape and cut wereI needed to fit. I liked them so well, that I started to add the bigger scraps that I was saving and here are some of the blocks.

The first two are the tiny scraps that were in the garbage and on a single dryer sheet, the next three are on two dryer sheets sewed together. I just sewed willy nilly and then spray starched them and cut them square. I like this way of sewing lol. I am going to do a blanket stitch over the seam with gold or whatever later.

I am going to do lots more as I work on the pickled ladies, I will do a scrap block as I need distraction lol. These are so fun, I would rather be doing the scrap as they are all different and different centers of interest can be included. I do have a bin of scraps that I can dig into, but the ladies have more interesting and colorful fabrics.

I am sewing on my brother quilter machine and it only does a straight stitch, I have two of these machines, I love them so well. they are fast and sew a beautiful straight stitch. I will have to take out my bernina or the janome for the blanket stitch....don't we love our machines? lol

Love it. My oldest (21yo) is a cat lover and misses her Nala and Tori. I found some scrap fabric I want to work into her quilt. Love the clam scrap.

I will see if I get a break to take out the other machine to do the decorative stitch, it will make such a difference. I will post when I do one..
