String quilt plan

When I dumped out the Walmart bag, I came up with a plan. I've been slowly adding blocks and seeing my plan come to life.

August OMG

I started out so good at the beginning of the year with OMG (One Monthly Goal). I even won a prize for one month. But then I kept forgetting to post.

For this month, I want to get the back done to my son's super hero quilt. I'm piecing the back, in bigger sections than I did the front to use up more of the Super Hero Fabric.

Here is the front:

More scraps and a plan

I sorted out the red scraps from the walmart bag full of scraps.

And the pink scraps

And made a plan for my strings.

How much fabric scraps can you stuff in a Walmart bag?

I had a very stuffed Walmart bag full of scraps in my room, so I decided to dump it out and get it sorted by color.

I got the orange cut into different sizes and sorted into by Orange box.

And the purple too!

Working on the red now. Not sure if I'll do much more after the red, we will have to see. I'm going to need to buy a new rotary blade soon.

More quiet book pages

I finished a few more pages.

I made 2 ABC pages. One for my son's book, and one for a book for another niece.

I also made a number page for my son.

Flaps containing buttons under them to match the number.

Economy block swap

A few days ago I joined a FB group, Fussy Fun Block Swap. I joined right in on there swap, making economy blocks. Since I still had transformers out from a previous project, that's what I used.

The letter n

I finally made the letter n. I asked in a post a long time ago if music Note fabric would work. But never made it.

I stopped at a fabric shop with my girls and a neice. We started looking for fabric and they came up with:

y is for yarn, I already used yarn for the capital Y so I might have to look around some more!
k is for koala.
h is for hot chocolate.
j is for jalopeno.
And i is for iguana.

I had seen lizards and peppers. I have a few more letters to find q and x and possibly something different for y. So if you have any ideas let me know.
