Please excuse the cat hair encrusted pillow beneath Jabba, lol. and Matt’s arm, lol. I made this for a friend that we all just found out was having open heart surgery for a quadruple bypass, possibly quintuple, on Tues…the date got moved up so that they could get her in and out before the COVID deluge…Scary shit man…she’s only 5 years older than me at 55, which I think is still VERY young! So fingers crossed for smooth surgery and swift recovery. <3
On the topic of scraps and using up the stash…Back in January, I took my color sorted bins of scraps out and cut them into 5" squares, and 2.5" strips, and hauled them off to the “Star Wars House”. I hate to not have a project when I’m here, so I thought this was the perfect way to use them up and make quilts from them, instead of letting them accumulate even more.
So I made a pink and purple quilt right before this, that used literally everything I had in the way of cut up scrap purples, and I don’t have some crazy vast stash here. Just all these cut up scraps, and a very few pieces of larger fabric, and a few sub boxes I’d never integrated into the main stash. So I searched every crevice of those sub boxes, and scraps to come up with enough purple to make this, lol. I am so glad I sent those subscription boxes, because they saved the day lol.
Stay home & safe ya’ll <3
