First, thanks to those of you who have voted for my cousin's project. I'll definitely let you know if she wins!
On to quilty stuff...not that I've done much this weekend because I've had other things that were more imprortant. Once I get groceries bought and put away today, I hope to get back to the sewing room.
But as I was sorting through my leftovers, looking for a particular green, I got ambitious and sorted them all by color. Then I couldn't get them all back into their box. This sorting made it easier for me to pick fabrics for the swap blocks, but my box still looks like this:
That box is the "sweater" size box. Some of you are probably giggling at me as hard as we were at Ann when she showed us her pathetic scrap box, but I have a problem. I am NOT a scrap quilter. I may use multiple reds in a project, but I'm not a fan of making truly scrappy quilts. They're beautiful, don't get me wrong, but I have a control issue, I guess, when it comes to color!
What to do?
I've seen a few modern-scrappy-ish quilts I like, but they're so far from anything else I've ever made, I'm not sure I have the confidence to even try one. And we're all more critical of our own work...
Good thing I have swap blocks to keep me sewing instead of worrying over this bin too much. Probably one of these nights I'll wake up knowing what these scraps need to be used for... In the meantime, I have PLENTY of other projects to keep me busy!
