Scraps Galore

Some weeks ago I hit a wall. Didn't want to work on the started quilts, didn't know what to do with myself... I came across a bag of snippets. They were saved to make quilts with someday. Sew I started -  with the bag next to the sewing machine I sewed pieces together (with abandon), ironed, cut, and sewed them together again...

Here's what that is turning into... the most work I've ever put into such a little bit of "quilt"
Quite angular and geometric. It's hard for me to do. I'm trying to be Free.  I never know when a piece is done.
Anyway, I'm adding this to  Em's Moving It Forward linky this morning. Come on over and see what else is there.

Thunderstorms and rain here today.



  1. Thanks for linking up! This is a great use of scraps!

  2. I like how this is coming out--free is good...hugs, Julierose

  3. It's fun to play with scraps and color outside the lines! Just go with it.

  4. Looks like it is working and great for scrap busting! Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday

  5. Looks like a lot of work to do. I have 3 bins with scraps in all shades.....and no idea, how to reduce.

  6. sometimes mindless sewing of scraps it's what is needed to get out of a slump and before you know it you even start to feel a sense of accomplishment (and maybe feel a little free!!!!)

  7. That is exactly what I need to do with my basket of scraps. It really is a lot more work than one would think. Looks great!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love the feedback, and getting to know you.
