A few little lizards

Once again, time has slipped away from me and I’ve fallen behind in my blogging. Ooops! All I can say in my defense is that this time of year is particularly intense for me, with all the patterns we offer as part of our traditional Christmas in July series.

So there certainly hasn’t been much sewing around here lately, particularly over the last month. In June, however, I did manage to use up some of my tiniest scraps to make 3 little wall hangings, lizards being the common denominator.

For the first, I used some of the ¾” squares left over from a mosaic quilt made about 10 years ago.

That’s a long time to hang on to teeny tiny, scraps, I know! And, as if that weren’t enough, I actually cut them down to ½”. Yes, that’s me… crazy.

So I made this little quilt:

And there’s actually a tutorial to go with it!

 What to do then with those even tinier ¼ x ¾” bits left over from this project? While a collage, of course! And I used my new Silhouette cutter to cut out the lizard for this project.

Oh, boy! Then I was left with the piece I had cut out that lizard from AND some of the ½” squares! It seemed like such a waste to just throw all that away. So what to do? Another little mosaic quilt, of course!

And a tutorial to go with this one, too!

Believe it or not, I STILL have quite a few ¾” squares left over!!!

I think these will just have to end up in some fabric collage. I’m done with mosaics. For the time being.

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
