Challenge 2017 - # 25, 26, 27 - a whole lotta scraps!

I've had a busy summer. Hubby and I spent a week visiting my parents in Winnipeg. We brought my mum back with us for a week. Mu and I got a lot of quilting done! One of my summer projects was to make quilts for the 3 children of our pastor. Pastor Ken and his family have recently moved from Calgary to Surrey BC. We will miss them. I decided to make scrap quilts for each of the kids and Mum was a great help to me as we worked on these large lap quilts for the kids. We found this simple quilt from Quilts and More magazine and dug into my huge pile of scraps! Mum sewed all the strips together. I cut the strip sets into block units and she and I sewed partial seams to make the blocks. The qu

Because of my fabric dyeing craze, I'm picking up meters of various manufactures of white fabric. I bought some princess mira batik white and Kona white fabric. Next stop was to drop off Mum's machine for servicing at

Wowza! Look at those colors!

I'm on a fabric dyeing craze lately. I've been dyeing fabric almost non stop and I'm loving it! I found a new to me book on hand dyeing fabric in my personal library. I pulled it out to have a look and was surprised that I hadn't remembered that I had this book. Reading through it I found a new and simpler method and just had to give it a try! I pulled out the very last of my white fabrics and ripped it into just enough FQs to do what I wanted to do. First up was a 12 step color wheel. I choose bright yellow, fuchsia and turquoise dyes. The method is straight forward and I was surprised that I made less mess than usual. I love the colors and the texture I get in my fabrics. At the back of
