Did you hear? Connecting Threads is holding another design contest this year! They are taking submissions from July 22 through August 10th. You can read all about the contest here and the guidelines are here. I may be thinking of submitting something....yikes!------------------------------------
Now, on to the scraps!
I'm already finding that my 101 scrap project challenge is a fun way to play with various color combinations and techniques on a small scale. Using up scraps will simply be a nice side benefit!
I quilted the piece heavily, as you can see. You can get away with that on a small piece and it doesn't take forever. Hurray! To finish it off, I used a single fold binding. Carol has a great tutorial for that here. If you have to bind a small project, I highly recommend it!
*I should note that this hand quilting thread (by Robison-Anton) is uncoated. I know that some hand quilting thread (Coats and Clark for instance) is coated and will NOT work in a sewing machine. I haven't tested other kinds of threads, so I can't recommend or give further advice on them.
