It's been a while since the last issue, and I know there are new followers reading for the first time today - welcome! Thank you all for checking in with The Scrap Basket. It's been enjoyable getting back into the routine of gathering things I think you'll enjoy. This issue is jam-packed, so let's get to it!
New to me is the fact that I've joined the 2016 Finish-A-Long global hosting team. That sounds official, right? If you're unfamiliar with the FAL, check out this post. Basically it's a no-obligation, no-incrimination group of crafters who want to finish up works in progress. There's still time to make a list of your projects and join in!
This round-up is a little different in that rather than highlight one kind of quilt or technique, it's a variety of items that I just plain love. All of them gave me a wow moment when I saw them pop up in my Instagram or Bloglovin' feed.
I fell in love with this solid yellow bowl by Trinia/Penguin Feats in which she dyed her rope with turmeric before sewing. How cool is that? [penguinfeats]
This lovely bowl by Samantha/Petunia Blossomis fabric-wrapped, and I love its low shallow shape. Note the sweet finish with contrasting thread. [petuniablossom2]
Here's a fun one! When I contacted Julie/Julie Hirt Quiltsabout sharing her bowl, I asked if she'd followed a tutorial. Her response? "No. I'd be happy to make a tutorial though." Serious? Oh yeah. Check out Julie's Rope Bowl Tutorial - it has oodles of tips and variations and makes it all seem so very doable. [juliehirt]
I need your help! I've been asked to do a blog post on quilt math, and I know many of you already have some great stuff written. So I'm planning a round-up! If you have a quilt math post or series you'd like me to include, or one you refer to often, email me firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
