Barbara’s scrappy stitching has swerved off in a slightly different direction this week. Small “apple cores” have sneaked in under the radar and a small teaching sample is under way. Super easy for handstitchers, more of a challenge for machine piecers perhaps.
The most recent scrappy project for Barbara’s intrepid band of handstitchers featured a Four Point Star block – the blocks finish at 6inches so the project is a very manageable 18inches square without borders.
Over at the Rural Office bags of scraps and crates of stash have been emptied out and re-sorted just because that’s what you do when life gives you lockdown. At C&B Towers there has been much cajoling of scraps into blocks, backgrounds, backings and battings. Scrappiness definitely rules!
