Must be my frugal nature, but I can't seem to throw anything out. Sew..... I have boxes, baskets, and bags full of scraps, strips and strings! It is time to do something with them!! lol.
There is no rhyme or reason to my process; I just picked up a piece and sewed it to something else and before I knew it I had 31 blocks. My original plan was to sub-cut these made-up-blocks and turn them into HSTs using a basic, neutral, background fabric. Hmmmm. Well, can't seem to find the b/g fabric that I really like. Above is one 5.5 yard piece I have in my stash with a few of the blocks thrown on it... what do you think? Do they play nice together?
Above and below are close-ups of two more blocks with a peek of the b/g next to them.
I'm interested to hear what others think about this. Please share your thoughts and comments with me. I really don't want these blocks to wind up in a UFO box somewhere in my sewing closet. Can you help? I can't seem to picture it all together in my mind's eye. I think it's a great idea... but for some reason it is just NOT "coming together". The idea won't 'gel'! Know what I mean?
Until next time... thank you so much for popping in to visit my corner of the world. What's going on in YOURS??
