When it comes to quilting, I sometimes have a hard time letting go - be it fabric, scraps, WIPs or orphan blocks. I know in my head that I am probably never going to use many of the things I continue to tuck away but it is so hard to let them go.
But I am trying to change that.
With the Quilty Orphan Adoption coming up this weekend, I have been going through all of my WIPs and evaluating them. One of the projects I came across was a single block made from the book Folded Log Cabin Quilts. I have held onto this for years thinking I would someday revisit this technique and make a project from it.
I am finally letting it go. One of the reasons I am able to give up on this is I am passing this book on to someone I think might use and enjoy it.
So I turned my original little (very imperfect block) into a mini for my wall, put all the strips into the scrap bin and sent the book off.
But not before I turned some of those strips into a cute little hexagon mini mini for the new owner of the book. I don't expect her to make a project using this technique but sometimes it is easier to pass something on and let go when the item is going to a friend.
I have another project I will be putting up for adoption in a few days. If you have something you want to pass on to someone who can use it, the event starts Friday the 18th!!
Two WIPs crossed off my to-do list in one week!
I might have to celebrate by starting a fun NEW project!
