#The100DayProject

I’m a few days late for the official start, but I have joined into #The100DayProject and will be posting photos of my projects each day to Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/juliebneu/  The idea behind the project, which fits so perfectly with Creative Play, is to do a creative project every day for 100 days. I’ve been itching to do […]

Summer of Scraps Week 6

The photo I showed when I first started the Summer of Scraps project only represented a portion of the scraps that I have. I also have a bin full of bits and pieces of batik fabrics:So, this week’s project, which was also a UFO on my list for the American Patchwork & Quilting UFO Challenge, […]

Summer of Scraps – Week 4

I’m at the halfway point in my Summer of Scraps and I made a huge dent in the white scraps this week with this quilt top: The colored “scraps” for this one came from a strip exchange I did with quilting friends a decade ago. We cut 2 1/2″ strips of some of our stash […]

Summer of Scraps Week 3

As promised, I went a little easier on myself this week and sewed up a quick project. Since I already had the rainbow scraps out and my daughter is in a serious rainbow phase at the moment, I made a flag banner for her playhouse.  The inspiration for the project was the July 4th Bunting […]

Summer of Scraps, Week 2

Summer Plans

Summer is Here!Summer is here and I have started making my summer plans. My plans don’t really include champagne on the dock, though maybe they should. Instead, I am planning: Auction Hiatus  – My eBay auctions haven’t been as successful as I had hoped so I’m putting that experiment on hold. I’m going to rethink […]

#APQ Resolution – May

Many of my UFOs for the American Patchwork & Quilting’s 2017 UFO Challenge have been stacking up because they’re ones that require a lot of work. March’s project was to quilt an entire quilt and I’m still working on that. April’s project was the same. But May’s project was an easy one to get done […]
