I must be out of my mind but I am going to attempt to make a queen sized scrap quilt.
There I've said it, I've posted this and now I must forge ahead. Sandy over at quilting for the rest of us is posting the directions for a scrap mystery quilt that her guild is doing and some of my twilter friends on twitter are doing it so I thought it would be fun to join them.
go to sandy's blog here to check it out - I have alot of fabric that has just been sitting and this is a good way to use up stuff I that I've been
hording for years accumulating.
So after a few nightmares about cutting up 864 squares and some nudging from sandy announcing a linky party showing our progress (of which I had none)
and after a nice fall day walk to clear my head
I proceeded to cut and chain sew - and you know what - it felt good!
kind of going back to my roots, I'de forgotten the pleasure you get from this pedal to the medal sewing and the beauty of scraps. Now I haven't cut all 864 squares, not even close - just well I haven't counted but maybe two handfuls of 2 1/2 inch squares mainly to see how the background will work that I picked.
I couldn't decide on a background and so after spending an hour at joannes, I picked this pumpkin orange - a color that I
dislike have never used before in my life. But this is a project of getting out of my rut, so I said to myself - just go for it - and I did - and I like it :-)
Why don't you join us on this mystery quilt - but I warn you
YOU MUST HAVE LOTS OF SCRAPTITUDE!
