Scrappy Orange Heart

Here’s my second scrappy orange heart. Now I’m working on turning it and the other hearts into reversible orange and yellow heart bibs for two little girls who will start eating solid foods in a month or so.

Orange Fabric Strips

These 1 1/2″ orange strips are waiting until it’s cooler to be pressed and turned into a scrap heart like these


When that’s done, I’ll have 2 yellow and 2 orange hearts that I plan to sew into reversible bibs for Mira and Audra. They’ve just turned 4 months old, and their mom is looking forward to trying solid food around 6 months. I wish I could say I had planned the bibs to be yellow and orange like their quilts, but actually I just found the backing fabric in my stash and decided yellow and orange hearts would look good with it. Then, after I had made the first three hearts, I had to decide what to do with them, and baby bibs seemed like a good idea. So, that worked out well!

Fun with Scraps

After I finished piecing a quilt the other night, I felt like playing around with scraps a little.  I had a bunch of 1.5″ yellow strips, so I decided to try piecing a string heart block. The dark blue background fabric was in my stash.
