All this rain has gotten to me and I needed something to cheer me up, so I started playing in my sewing room.  I needed to create.  Make something different.  I had seen some improve paper piecing on Instagram and decided to try that and at the same time use some of my scraps.  I came up with the above.  I think I will bind it in that dotted fabric, place some Insul-Bright in the sandwich and use it as a hot pad.  Maybe I'll make some more for Christmas.  It's a great way to use your scraps to be creative.  Maybe you can try it at the next Happy Scrappers meeting at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this coming Wednesday, October 9.

Oh Caroll! What a great block you’ve made! Definitely a great idea for some Christmas presents. When I look at it I’m curious about your process. For the rays that have two different fabrics...were those fabrics already sewn together or did you sew them together before sewing it as a ray?...was that clear as mud? I love this happy scrappy look.

That is such a fun playful block! It looks like a great way to use up the scraps.

Check out Jo Avery of My Bear Paw’s published pattern from 2015 for how to put this together.
