Blue Scrappy Scrap Bag finished



2018 FAL:



This is my first finish for the Q1 finish along 2018. I posted my goals for the first quarter here.




Each month Angela  gives a colour and the Rainbow Scrap Challenge participants use their scraps in that colour to make something new. This month the colour is light and medium blue. I have made a scrap bag from scraps to join the bags I made last year, but this time stepped outside the RSC limits to use all blues, and aqua and teal. These are colours I don't use much so they don't need a bag each; they can share!

This was also my January goal for "One Monthly Goal".

Pattern from Fiona at BubzRugz
The bag finished at about 8"x7" but, before I cut the pieces out to form the base, it looked like this:

 a rectangle ±16"x22".

I had fun trying out the techniques I have learnt in Jacquie Gering's Craftsy course, "Quilting with the Walking Foot". Even putting on the binding was easier following her advice on using the walking foot.

What a fun bag. I’m always impressed when I see non flat shapes getting quilted.

Great scrap bag you have done.

Chantal said...

Very well done, Marly! Isn't scrappy blue the best color ever? Well, in my book anyway, lol. ;^)

Fun bag! Thanks for the pointer to Jackie Gehring's course, I've been looking at some Craftsy courses and that one sounds quite useful.

I love your blue scrap bag. It would be fun to have one in every color to put the same color of scraps in.

Very nice work! I love the rows of wavy stitches that look like rick-rack.
