It's another Scrap Basket Sunday!
I'm linking up with Kim and the rest of the creative Scrap Basket Sunday quilters. I look forward to seeing what everyone has done with their scraps this week.
I worked on my June Button-Up wall-hanging, in between shopping with my grand daughter, working in my flower beds, and painting my picket fence around my little garden. Although I don't like strong storms and all that it can bring with it, I do welcome a nice rain that helps saves me time from having to go out and water twice a day; that leaves me a little more time to sew!
I really like the way this is turning out. I love that I was able to find pinks in my scrap baskets to use for the hollyhocks. The pink and brown stripe was just sitting on my shelf; leftover from using it as a back of a graduation quilt I made a couple of years ago. I bought the little check for the background, a couple of years ago, because I needed something with small checks to give texture and interest to whatever I was making. For this wall-hanging I couldn't decide if I wanted the check or a blue (for sky), but I'm glad I chose the check because it looks like a great day with a little bit of cloud coverage.
This week I will spend time appliqueing everything. It is June, afterall, and I need to get this quilted fast. I plan to use the appliqueing as my quilting (I layer everything, and applique as it quilts it at the same time. It's sort of a two-fer.) with a little bit of quilting in the open spaces.
My soil may not can grow Hollyhocks, but it can grow Sunflowers. The ground is nice and wet; perfect for planting seeds (and pulling weeds).
Have a great day!
Be sure to look at the quilt I finished in May and posted in my One Project a Month. You can see it here. It's perfect for scrap quilts.
