After last month’s unimpressive start, I made a point of being ready this time!
I have a lot of long skinny strips in my scrap baskets, bits of leftover binding, trimmings and offcuts. You can’t do much with them – except make a scrappy block. So here it is. It’s a big one, at 17″ square, and the seams aren’t totally straight, but then, nor were the scraps! It’s not wonky, just a bit crooked, and I’m fine with that! Nor is it a very complicated block, but there are no rules here, and it’s done.
Maybe something like the Scrap Vortex quilt being created in brilliant Technicolour by Amanda Jean over at Crazy Mom Quilts…. And then there’s Cath’s version over at Wombat Quilts. She’s gone for low value fabrics, and it’s gorgeous. Whichever version I went with would certainly take care of some of the tinier pieces! It seems everyone is catching the scrappy bug, and it’s such a good thing, because otherwise these treasures sit unloved and unused in a bag or box and never see the light of day.
