Yesterday I was cutting what seemed like my millionth 2″ diamond for a pattern that I am very excited about – it will be making an appearance in a magazine this winter – when I decided I HAD to make a scrapbook. Or maybe two.
My neglected pile of photographs did not inspire me, although they should have, since they are in dire need of organization.
No, the source of my newfound obsession was the scraps on our floor.
So, I picked up a couple of inexpensive 7″ x 10″ photo albums at Target and pieced together some covers out of Ambrosia. I then quilted them with some scrap batting that I had leftover from another project. I stitched in the ditches, added some simple vertical striping, put on the embroidery foot, and it was off to the races!
Who knows? Maybe this will inspire me to sort through photos. (Not likely, if there are still more fabric scraps available.) I will make this pattern available on this site soon, by the time Ambrosia ships – so you can make a scrapbook to record summer memories or give to a friend.
