YOU GOT ANY IDEAS??? – When I started this project of making as many scrap quilts from other peoples leftover scraps and unwanted blocks, I didn’t realized at first that no matter how much you use up there is always some scraps left. I have a little trash can next to my machine on the floor by the ironing board. That is where I had been throwing all of my “scraps” when I was working on the tops. I ended up with a small trash can full of fabric. Every square inch of fabric can be used and remember: What you throw away costs you as much as you the fabric you keep. So, right before I was going to put that whole can full of fabric in the trash outside, I was reminded that I was really throwing money away. So, I went through it and pulled out pieces that were at least an inch square. I laid it all out and it was such a variety of colors, patterns, and sizes that I decide to start saving all my scraps and making blocks out of what I had been throwing away.
I found some redish color and decided that all my blocks would start of like a log cabin block and that would be the thing that ties all that chaos together. When I got enough I laid them out square. They didn’t do a thing for me. So I set them on point and they started to dance. I like this quilt, BUT I feel it needs a little something to make it pop. YOU GOT ANY IDEAS???
