Greenfields quilt top

Hello there! I can't believe how quickly time is flying by, 20th of February already and this is my first blog post of the year!

I have decided that 2017 is the year I am going to attempt to face up to the scrap "situation" and to that end I am going to try to link up with Nicky and Leanne for Scraptastic Tuesday each month (yes I know I missed January altogether and that I am pretty close to the deadline for February,  but I will try harder!).

I started off by sorting out the rattiest, stringiest bits from the tangled scrap boxes (i.e. the least appealing bits) and found a good pattern in Kathy Doughty's "Making Quilts" book which looked like it would use a lot of scraps!

So this is the completed top of my "Greenfields" quilt.

It took me from 2nd of January until the 16th of February to complete,  I think that there are a lot of pieces in there, but it doesn't seem to have made much of a difference to the scrap "situation"! It was a good opportunity to use up bobbins with weird coloured thread, and half empty one's too.

This will be heading off to Siblings Together when it is finished. I have just ordered some backing fabric for it, so I can get it quilted in the next few weeks.

Linking up with Nicky and Leanne for Scraptastic Tuesday, just in the nick of time!
