Using up scraps

I've been on a path of using up what I have and I have lots of fabric to use. I pulled out some fabric scraps around Christmas and started piecing them together and ended up with three quilt tops, this weekend I quilted them. They will be used as donation quilts, last year I donated fifteen quilts, so I've got a good start on this year. This is what they look like.

The Weekly Leaf
This week I used paintstiks brushed off of a mask onto hand dyed red fabric.

Then added lots of stitching in the parts with the paintstik color.

  1. Your scrap quilts are so much fun, great colors and design. This week's leaf is fabulous. I also liked your SAQA auction piece. I have not started mine. Since I am going again this year, I should make one.

  2. Your weekly Leaf stitches are mesmerizing and the negative space delicious.

  3. Love following your themes. Happy stitching!

  4. I ALWAYS love seeing your gorgeous hand stitches....those last two this week are delicious!

  5. Your weekly leaf is so inspiring. Hope it will inspire me sometime soon to start a weekly project.

  6. Weekly leaf is my favorite this week! Stunning!!!
