I know, I know. I said recently that I was going to really try to get a few things done around here. I even made a list of goals to have done by the end of September. But what do I do? I start playing in the scrap bin and can't resist starting a few more quilts.
I have been setting aside my white, gray, lime green and black scraps for quite some time. The bin they were going into finally over flowed so I thought I had better start cutting to see what I had. I spent a couple nights cutting them into 2 1/2" squares and decided to add a bit of turquoise to the mix.
As usual, I have no clear direction on this so we shall see what I end up with! So far, I have just randomly started chain piecing them together....
I have also been sewing together some red string blocks. With so many of my last projects having red in them, I have quite a few scraps that need to find a home.
These are 10 1/2" blocks so they go nice and quickly!
I was also sidetracked by some scrap triangles a friend gave me. Not sure how I will use them but they are all sewn and trimmed and waiting for the perfect project.
How come your friend's fabric is so much more fun than your own?!
I also spent last night playing with various layouts on this big stack of triangles that were also "gifted" to me. I might just try to bury these under some fabric in my sewing room so I quit spending time on them.
Think that will work?
I am pleased to say I quilted and bound this scrappy lap quilt so this week wasn't all about starts. Unfortunately this quilt wasn't one of my FAL goals but I am still happy to have it done and listed in my Etsy shop!
Well, it's a new week now and maybe this will be the week I zero in on some more finishes.
I really do have a number of fun WIPs to choose from so it shouldn't be that hard!
