Trying to Make A Dent

I have a new niece who should make her first appearance any day now. So my first priority at the retreat was to put together this little quilt for her. It's a smaller version of my Harvest Sky pattern. I've got to get hopping so I get it quilted and bond before she arrives.Next up was my spiderweb quilt. I sewed out of the same bin of scraps for two days and it doesn't even look like a small dent was made. How does that happen? The only proof I have are these blocks. Maybe by the time I make the remaining 29 blocks the scrap bin have signs that it has been put to good use.

  1. Didn't you know that scraps reproduce in those bins? ;)
    Love the photo of the flimsy with the sun streaming through from behind -- makes it look like stained glass.

  3. lovely webs. and you did make a dent, I promise. It's just that you fluffed up the scrap bins so you can't see the difference.

  4. I always feel the same way when I go into the scrap bins. They never seem to disappear. Both quilts are wonderful. One of these days I am going to do one of those webs. I love it.
