I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed by my overflowing scrap bins lately and a strong need to simplify.
I was able to use lots of stringy scraps in my scrappy string quilt that I blogged about last week, but alas, that barely made a dent in my stash.
So I sewed together three rows of it,
and then put the rest in numbered stacks to make new room on my design wall.
I then got to work on some more HST’s. Using my scraps and some Kona Snow/Bone (also scraps), I made some 2.5 inch squares (finished size) to put into a little pillow cover, or if it goes well, maybe a fun little modern, scrappy HST quilt! It’s a great opportunity to work on my HST skills and getting some clean, matching points; something I always seem to have trouble with. I find all that point matching very fussy and time consuming but I love the end result!!
I’m linking up with Lee’s WIP Wednesday again. As always, there are loads of fun projects to check out over there.
P.S. I also got my plane tickets to Austin for next month!! Whoo, hoo…..Who else is heading to Quilt Con?
