Scrappy Projects

I had a productive sewing weekend. Besides finishing the quilted table runner, I also cranked out a quick camera-strap cover from scraps and started Amy Butler's Midwest Modern Quilt - the name seems to fit, don't you think?

The camera-strap cover comes from one of my favorite blogs, Cluck, Cluck, Sew. If you don't already subscribe, do. She has great aesthetic and informative tutorials. It's one of my go-to places for inspiration. 

The Amy Butler quilt is a free download available here. I'm making it from scraps left over from my mom's many garment projects. She has tons of Amy Butler - a whole bag of scraps - that she gave me. (Thanks, mom!) I will need to buy for the outer boarder and backing, but that is down the road. For now, I can enjoy cutting and piecing this fun, colorful quilt I plan to put on Olivia's bed.
