Challenge #109 at Unstampabelles


It’s my turn to share on the Unstampabelles Blog this week.

I will admit this was a real challenge for me and at a stretch meets the requirements!


TWIST: Scrap It! (but card/journalling will be accepted if they follow theme)

You can  let your hair down here and show us what is happening at home while in lockdown!

If you have been following me for a while you know I am not a scrapbooker. However I do dabble in other areas, one of which is sewing and more specfically quilting. So for my take on the challenge I decided to use scraps to create a new journal cover for my quilt journal. I keep notes on the quilts I have made such as where I purchased the fabric, fabric quantities, block design/pattern and a finished pic of the quilt. How does this relate to lockdown? For most of last year I did continue to go to work in the city office upto the point when we were in stage 4 lockdown which was for 6 weeks however that ended up being about 3 months! In that time I spent a great deal of time watching webinars and using my time to create items for charity.

I used scrap pattern paper and stitched triangle dies to create this half squre triangle pattern. I then added the word “quilt” to create a new journal cover.

Here it is on the cover of my journal.

Now a few pics. One of my first journal entries followed by some of the many creations from 2020.

Quilts from pram size and knee size. These quilts don’t have batting. They are called summer quilts. Qult tops are made from off cuts from a charity I attend – Days for Girls, pieces from Donations in Kind, upcycled jeans and general pieces gifted to me.
This was a quilt I made for a friend.

Thanks for stopping

Hope to see you in the challenge
