Quilt With Us

Yesterday I spent a lot of time on this strippy improv as I want to get it to the sandwiched stage and ready to machine quilt.  Today, I've cut my batting and will pin baste it together.  They are predicting snow for tonight and tomorrow, so it's a good time to stay inside and get some quilting done.  In this picture, my triangles on the edges are just pinned, but I have topstitched them down like the seed shapes.  It's funny, I started this strippy thing to try and dwindle my scrap stash down, I think I've actually made more scraps....ugh, I guess it's an endless process.  ;o)

My light bulb switched on when I decided just how small a scrap was too small, and I pitched them!  I cut the rest in 2-1/2" strips and 6" squares and sorted by color into plastic boxes.

Well, on the bright side, we never run out of scraps.

Thank you for the comments.  Pam, great idea on taking them to the local school!  Barb, I love playing with color, the more color in a quilt the better for me.  It's like eye candy.

I hear you on your efforts to reduce your scrap stash, creating more!  Mind boggling, but true.

I am loving this improv quilt!  Taking a risk with color and design is paying off great for you!
