Scrappy design wall

   Cutting and piecing small projects has filled the design wall.....a watercolor banner, large table runner from the Hot Dish pattern, a table runner using the Piano Keys pattern, and a scrappy rail fence using the 2+4 rail block variation.

  The Hot Dish runner is large it is ready to be pinned and quilted.  The Piano Keys runner is going to get a border this time around before it gets finished.

  The watercolor banner needs an applique....possibly the butterfly, if I can find the fabric I want to use.  Then a border is needed too.

  I went ahead and assembled the blocks I had for the rail fence.  It is a small lap throw size right now, only about 36" by 48", so a border is needed to finish it up.

   A lot of leader/ender piecing was accomplished as I put all of this together this week.  I think I can actually begin to put together a few rows on the vintage bricks, just to see how it looks.

   Along the way, I pulled out a scrap bin of strips to look for some pieces for binding.  I found binding and some leftover blocks.   These may find their way into some mug rugs. thing leads to another....and I have miles of thread to go before I stop.
   Sir Old Man stopped in and asked what all of this is for.  The gift pile, and one for a charity auction, I replied.   I do believe he thought I was preparing to open a shop or at least put things up for sale!  That is more production that I have in me, I think.  I really think I am just making more scraps.......happy stitching.

Lots of pretties on the wall! I'm scrambling for finishes to clear things out, but they do make for sidetracks looking for border and binding fabrics.

I can see that Hotlegs will be put to work soon. You have been very productive in your process of making scraps. : )
A butterfly applique will really finish that piece up beautifully!

The butterfly would be beautiful on the banner, I hope you find the right fabric. I wish there was a way to keep the men folk out of the sewing room, it's best for them not to see, LOL.
