Hello and welcome to my little stop on the Scrap-Applique Book-A-Round.
I don’t know about you guys, but I get very attached to my appliqué fabrics. I don’t know exactly why but when I am getting to the end of one of my favorites I get very stingy with it….and a tiny bit sad. I have a little pile of bits that I just can’t throw away but I don’t know what to use them for.
Well, Kay Mackenzie has come to my rescue with her new book Scrap-Applique Playground. She is just so clever! This book is filled with really cool projects that you can use all your precious little scraps for. Just take a look at these really great pictures!
I was so excited when she asked me to be a part of the Book-A-Round that I rounded up all my favorite little pieces of green and pink and made a block using her technique for “barber pole” stems. Here’s a little detail.
Here is the block
…which I am currently making into my new little quilt pattern, Miss Kay… as a little THANK YOU for her super spectacular website All About Applique. Be sure to go check out all the other Book-A-Round stops.
AND, the best part is, I have a copy to give away. Just leave a comment telling us which color is the biggest in your scrap pile. For me, pink and green are having a little competition but green might be winning. I will announce the winner tomorrow night.
