Taming the scraps
My poor little blog, I've been neglecting it again. I seem to be in a slump, and haven't been doing that much sewing lately.
So I decided that my newest, and smallest, scrap bin is in danger of overflowing, and I had better do something about it.
I've been sorting... here's some squares of various sizes
Lots and lots of strips, mostly 2.5", but there are some smaller and a few larger. They aren't sorted into various sizes yet, just piled up.
And even some triangles.
My first thought, with all those strips, is a chain quilt of some sort. I love Irish chains. I've been playing around with EQ. And think I have a plan....but the more I think about it, the more I think I'm going to have to do two quilts here. A triple Irish chain with all those strips, and then something else... we shall see.
But I have to put those aside for now, because I have some beautiful RR's to work on.
One with 30's fabrics, and a bright, jewel starred one. I have to put my thinking cap on and pull out my 30's scraps.
What have you been up to?
Have a great day.
