Monday bits and bobs

The house was empty except for me by 8am this morning so I had five straight hours to sew before playing canasta this afternoon and Guild this evening. I have progressed the following, some more than others.

Sweetwater scrappy trip around the world (TATW). Looking good. Top is now pieced so I think I'll break out the Ikea bitten fabric for the backing and hope I have enough.

I also pieced some binding from the leftover jelly roll from the scrappy TATW. It may or may not be long enough but I have other pieces still left over.

A trivet using fabric from my colour co-ordinated scrap bags. Looking good so far.
Some of the 90 scrappy quarter square triangles for a sewing machine cover from Quilty Fun for the Sewing Room Swap 2.

And I started the February Love in a Mist block for the Siblings Together 2 swap. The top left hand fabric isn't as dark as it looks, but I may replace it tomorrow. again, all from my scrap bags and when I was short of a colour, I dug in my bags of fabric and added to the bags. 2.5" squares were easy to find, but the 3" squares were more tricky.

Join me tomorrow for the blog hop when I will be visiting lots of blogs and attempting to finish quilting a client quilt.
