Bibs, coasters, quilt back: check, check, check!
Friends, I turned this mother out!
This might just be the first time I’ve lived up to the good Make It Snappy name when it comes to bib production. Even if they’re cut and pieced in a timely fashion, they languish at the Velcro attachment/top-stitching stage. You know that; you’ve seen it here before. Not today, though! Do you know how mentally taxing it is to have almost-done projects laying around? Not the ones that are meant to be picked up again and again, but the “quick” ones that you just can’t quite finish. I find it draining, and for once, decided to save myself the self-imposed guilt and just stuck with it. Woo-hoo! [Note to self: Remember how good it feels to finish.]
Boy, I’ve said it before: those coasters really are addictive. They’re such a great use for scraps, because they only call for 4.5″ squares. You don’t need a whole lot of width, but in the end they take up a fair amount of fabric. I’m not going to show you a picture of my scrap pile, but you’ll just have to believe me when I tell you it’s…well, unbelievable. Anyway, I’ve got two more sets of these cut and ready to go, with plans to bust out a few more. A couple stacks will be for me. I don’t know why I’m suddenly so conscious of it, but it makes me a little crazy when I find glasses sitting in pools of water all over the house. And yes, I’m usually the one the left the drink there in the first place; whatever. Besides, coasters are purdy.
By the way, can I just mention that all of the fabric for the projects shown today fit into the “use what you have” category? Congratulations on fulfilling your destiny, my cottony friends.
