Boy has it been busy in the studio! Last month, I kicked off 2 block of the months; the Starry Night Quilt and the Scrappy Starry Night Quilt series. To tell you the truth, I’m more excited about finishing them then you could ever image! It means, I’ll have two new pretty quilts to add to my tiny collection.  Come join the fun and bust through your scraps with the Scrappy Starry Night Quilt Block of the Month series on The Sewing Loft.

I'm turning my leftover fabric scraps into this fabulous quilt one block at a time with The Sewing Loft's Starry Night Quilt and I love the way it looks!

Even though this quilt will be scrappy, I’m determined to unify it with two anchor fabrics that were left over from different projects. Kona white which is left over from the original quilt and a large chunk of storm from a project I made last summer. Fingers crossed, I have enough!

Scrappy Starry Night Block 2

 

The second block was released last week and is all about simplicity. You can find more information, directions and tips here.

It's time for the next block in the Starry Night Quilt Sampler. Come join the fun and Increase your skill set with a block of the Month sewing series on The Sewing Loft.
Even though this block is based around 4 fabrics, I needed to find a way to keep my version scrappy for this sister quilt. So, I stitched up a big block of fabric using my “Scrap Fabric Management” technique for the base. It was really fun to see all the colors come together but sub cutting was another story altogether. Boy, was I stressed! I didn’t want to waste any of that scrappy goodness.

But have no fear, I powered through it and really LOVE the way it looked. So much so that I almost didn’t use it for this block. Just think of how great it will look with a white X mark through the center. I think I’ve just found my next project.

WOW, I just learned how to create fresh new fabric from my scrap leftovers with this easy technique from The Sewing Loft. It's a win/win in my world without the guilt!

After I got everything cut out, it was time to get stitching! Because I like to step outside of the basic box, I threaded up my machine with some colored Aurifil thread. Talk about the perfect color, it’s just smiling at me! Don't be afraid to step outside of the coloring box when selecting thread color. I'm loving the turquoise in Pat Sloan's perfect box of colors by Aurifil.

Fast forward and I really like the way it turned out. Plus, I need to give my scrap bag swap partner a big thank you for the center square.
