Organization Leads to Squirrels
One of my monthly goals is to get these shelves re-organized as part my Scrap Challenge. Some things went into piles for guild members (just not my style, but theirs) and for the church group. A few large pieces (2 yrds or more) went into the large tote that holds backings. It was a good start, but then I saw a squirrel. Not the four legged kind - those guilter's "squirrels" - distractions.
I happened be going thru my solids when I got a 'blip' for a need for testers. This was the perfect pile of goodies for that project. Yeah - I was drawn into something not on my list.
Yup, cut right into them and started to play. Fresh fabric, fresh pattern, and add a wonderfull sunshiny warm day with doors open - it was fabulous!
This baggy - I hate to keep things in baggies - was found crammed behind those plastic shoe boxes. My longarmer gifted these some time ago. Cut offs from a Windham fabrics quilt - she does shop samples. Actually, I think this quilt went to Market - but I have these great scraps. Yeah, different sizes but I will make them work - a plan is formulating as I stitch these. I can use them as leader/enders or if a day just needs some mind-less sewing - they will go thru that machine like crazy.
**this line is Rhapsody in Blue and you can see several quilts done up over at Wendy Shepard's - Barb made the Blue Star - gorgeous!!**
So my organization might go on hold until that test quilt is done.
I am Thankful that generous quilters share their scraps with me,
