My scrap jar quilt

Remember in January when I started my Scrap Jar quilt which was a free tutorial by the very talented Amber over at a Little Bit Biased. I enjoyed making this quilt so much.



Now its all quilted and I love it even more. I love looking at all the scraps I used and my favourite pieces of fabric that I had been hoarding for ages thinking I'll use them one day. Then thought it would be a good idea to put them into this quilt.


It fits on my bed so nicely, plenty of over hang on the sides of my bed. The quilt is 90 inches square so it turned out quite big.














A close up of the quilting I did using an all over design called Daisy chain.

Now today I hope to get the binding sewn on.

I have been doing lots of sewing recently but I can't share photos just yet as they are for swaps I have joined.







I did receive this gorgeous little house from Kathy over at Sew Happy House. during the week, I won it in her giveaway. Its the first giveaway I have ever won.

Right, I now need to tackle some house work then I can sew, sew and sew for the rest of the day. I hope you find some sewing time today.
