I finally got back to the sewing room today after weeks and weeks of being absent.
My focus lately has been on our garden the kids and I have planted. If you want to see pop over to for my post and thoughts.
I diligently worked on a quilt top that I am planning as I sew. It is a scrap chomper, and though it is taking a serious bite out of my scraps, I still have mounds left over.
This quilt started out as a herringbone pattern similar to http://www.bijoulovelydesigns.com/ designed. Now, it is telling me to veer off and make it my own. We shall see how it develops but as I am sewing by the seat of my pants.
I hope to have photos of it soon. The only way I can describe it is that it is truly scrappy in the pure sense of the word.
No planning in how they are placed, I just tried to keep the lights and darks mixed evenly. The fabrics range from mainly cotton, poly blends and even a few that are unidentifiable.
I have fabrics from my purchases, my mothers, friends, my grandmother and my aunts, some are very old and some are new. So fun watching a new quilt top take shape, I cannot wait to see what it turns out to look like.
