Strip picture

I was inspired by a woman I am friends with on Facebook who makes the most beautiful pictures from strips of fabric, so I thought I'd have a go.
I definitely need more practise :)

Scrappy back for my Jacobs Ladder

I love the snappiness of the back, I have so many small pieces of fabric, sort of width of fabric that are between 4 and 10 inches wide, lots of bits that are 6 x 4" and many, many other sizes, so I wanted to make a really scrappy back and I will definitely be making lots more of them, I just love it.

WiPs Wednesday - Jacobs Ladder

I've just got one more border to do on my Jacobs Ladder and while I wait to get the fabric for it - because even though I have a huge amount of fabric, isn't always the way, I just don't have the right sized piece in the colour that I want.

I am in the process of making a really scrappy back for it, which is coming along nicely.

WIPs Wednesday - Jacobs Ladder

I saw a photo of a Jacobs ladder quilt and just fell for it, especially as it's a scrappy quilt, my favourite kind.

I think I'm making fairly good progress, I started it on Sunday evening (after the rugby match - which we won.. woohoo - I LOVE rugby).

I've also inherited another persons sewing kit and inside was a tin of buttons and in that tin where these gorgeous little buttons, the pencil ones are about 3/4 of an inch small, very, very cute.
