Scrap Bag Challenge - Sneak Peek!

The leg of my jeans!
I am very slowly making progress on my Scrap Bag Challenge quilt. The top is put together, though not without a great deal of frustration! My original method was an epic fail (it required a product that is not yet available in Australia - more about that later!), so I resorted to Plan B. Plan B was fiddly, laborious and left me covered in little threads. I really don't know why I even own black jeans - they are much higher maintenance than blue jeans if you want to slip in a bit of time at the sewing machine!

However, I am pleased with my completed quilt top (thought I would have liked to avoid the unpicking I inflicted upon myself) and the quilting is coming along nicely. Just very slowly.

Here are a couple of photos of the quilt top. Do you think you can guess what it is? Hopefully not, otherwise I may as well have just shown you right up front!!

Can you feel my frustration? Lots of 1 3/4" squares!! Don't look for perfect points everywhere...

Any ideas of what it might be?


  1. I've been told to wear black when sewing so when you get covered in threads everyone can see how busy you've been. I'm curious about the product we can't get in Australia, I don't even know what it is and I want some, just because we don't have it. Are you making a scrap vomit quilt?

  2. The curse of the dreaded threads....they do take on a life of their own, don't they!! Love, love, love your 1 3/4" squares quilt!! The fabrics and colours are so joyous!! You deserve a 'YAY' for piecing this beauty together!!

  3. I suppose I better not guess, seeing as I know the answer!! But I must say that your quilting is looking lovely, can't wait to see the finished product :-)

  4. Can't wait to see it, thanks for taking part :)

    1. Oooh - great guess (but no!)! Will pop it in the post today. I left some messages on your blogs requesting your address (couldn't find it anywhere!), but I now have it so just ignore them!
