I’ve made some time to do a little sewing in these first few weeks of the year, and I’m happy to say that I’ve managed to accomplish a few things.

The first is a new quilt top for the Scrap Quilt Challenge (#SQChallenge20 & #SQ9Patch on Instagram). The concept of the challenge is that each month, there is a new challenge block – this month was the 9-patch, you need to use that block to make a quilt that is at least 45×60″, and you have to do it with your scraps. I’ve got a whole year to finish the quilt, but I am hoping to get it finished well before the deadline.

For mine, I decided to design a quilt with 9-patch blocks in a variety of sizes, ranging from 6 to 18-inches. The final quilt will measure 48×60-inches, which I think is a great size for little kids, because they can cover themselves up completely, but it’s not so big that they have difficulty carrying it around.

My other big bit of progress is that I’ve finally completed the baby sized Communique quilt I was working on, with the fabrics that Mil picked out. The weather has been too bad to take it out for photos tho, so you’ll have to wait a bit to see the full finished quilt. But I will leave you with a closeup from my Instagram stories.

What have you been working on lately?

    Love it! My love of quilts (and quilting) came from great grandmother whose creations were always scrappy. I loved looking at all the different fabrics. I can imagine a child looking at this quilt with the same fascination.

    Thanks for linking up to Creative Compulsions!

    Love the 9-patch with the mix of sizes. And I hadn’t seen that particular scrap challenge, so thanks for the link to that too.
