scrap quilt progress since hiccup

After a two-week break, I was quite excited to get back to my scrappy mayhem quilt.  The photograph shows the first six chunks tailored to size and assembled. I am now making a long thin block to go down the side.   There is still a healthy heap of bits and pieces, so I reckon this will finish as a big double!

Kate Chiconi is making a bookshelf quilt, which is quite superb.  Mine is simply hanging on the bookshelf, as the only way I could get it all in one picture.  The tapestry above is a bit of Jock’s Canterbury Tales which he did a long time ago to pass the time while we were waiting for planning permission for the House That Jock Built.

  1. I love this scrappy quilt. As soon as I can sew again I’ll start thinking about one. I’m in love with Kate’s bookcase quilt. It’s probably way beyond my capabilities but I love books so much I must try a book quilt sometime as well. Now if the swelling will go down on the eye. I’ll be all set.

    Thanks for the link, Viv! I’m loving your scrap quilt, which blends rather well with the bookcase behind it – perhaps it’s an abstract bookcase quilt? I have one more day of sewing before we leave on our week-long holiday, so I’m hoping to show a bit more bookcase progress tomorrow. Keep up the good work.
