Little Pieces

Many pieces! Here is my latest baby quilt in progress. I’m calling it Scrappy Star.

HST units pieced and being trimmed to 4″

40 units all trimmed using Bloc-Loc tool. Bloc-Loc has several sizes and shapes that make trimming units a snap!

Time to lay out the star design. Sewing in progress.

The next project I worked on this past week was a zipper pouch made from candy bags.

I bought 2 Mentos bags. After cutting them open, I covered both sides of each bag with Heat n Bond Iron on Vinyl. I followed this youtube by Laura of Sew Very Easy.

And easy it was!

Flip side.

The zipper pouch measures 10″ x 6″. The Mentos pouch and candies – her favorite – are ready to mail to a special friend for her 20th birthday. Hubby said to add a note that says, “Mentos as a memento for your 20th Birthday!” He is such a punny guy!

That’s it for this week. How was your week?

Last To-Do List:

  1. Prep for one more baby quilt. A star design this time. ✔️ squares cut, units sewn and trimmed!
  2. Candy Bag Pouch – hoping to find a bag of Mentos to use! ✔️Mentos comes in fruit favor too. Who knew?! I bought 2 bags in two flavors.

This Week’s To-Do List:

  1. Piecing Scrappy Star baby quilt.
  2. Make more masks! I have several family members requesting masks.

    I like how your star is looking–have been thinking of making a dk blue/white quilt myself. Cute bag–haven’t tried those but always thought it would be fun! (Fruit-flavored mentos are the yummy ones!)

    Hi Sharon! I love the Mentos bag – very clever and funny with DH’s message. I can’t wait to see the baby quilt star layout. I’ve got to make about a dozen more masks this week myself. We were just asked for a bunch yesterday. I thought we were finished making them but now that I’ve had a break for a bit, I don’t mind. Thanks so much for linking up this week! ~smile~ Roseanne
