Funny how those scraps and bits and wedges just never seem to go down in the pile - in fact, I think they multiply! But I have been enjoying SARAH'S tips, techniques, patterns, and ideas so far this year. Even this old dog has learned a new trick here and there.
I have found there is a need to tame some of my shoe box totes that I just cannot close the covers on. The grays jumped at me (I actually knocked it on the floor too many times) and using many in the Winter Solstice QAL, but that isn't enough.
So I paired them with a 'found' gifted mini charm pack and started to make boxed blocks - easy and no stress. The fun thing with these blocks is you can change them up for so many looks. Larger center square with skinny boxes, 4-patches in the center, even make them rectangle instead of square by making the top/bottom strip wider or start with the center as a skinny rectangle and box it. Just play!!
Half the quilt is assembled and I will work on the other half today and marry the two. I have a large piece of gray on the shelf that is going for the final border. Yes, I said a border. I'm thinking of naming this one 'Arsnic and Old Lace ' as that is all I can think of while sewing all these grays.
