The overwhelming majority of you told me I really should keep my scraps from the Schnibbles Winter White/Old Primrose Inn quilt. So I did. And I made four patch blocks with them. Today I went to the quilt shop to buy a few more pieces so I could make something out of the scraps I'd saved. Are you starting to see a problem here?
So I pieced four patches into nine patches and made little stars and cut fabric all day and used some of my scraps. I didn't get the Winter White quilt pinned as I'd planned, so I didn't start quilting it. Nope, I messed around with scraps. And at the end of the day? I have a pile of scraps that's just as big as it was when I started. Now are you seeing the problem here?
This is what I have so far up on the design wall. I need to make two more blocks and then sew it all together (the colors seem kind of weird here--I'll get a better photo when I finish it):
And this is the pile of leftover "stuff" I have--including a full charm pack I thought maybe I'd need (and bought today) but I didn't.
So now I'm thinking about what I can do with THESE scraps. Do you see the problem here? I'm afraid that for the rest of my quilting life, I'm going to be sewing projects out of Old Primrose Inn scraps. THEY WILL NEVER DIE. Unless I take drastic measures.
So here's what I thought I'd do. Leave a comment on this blog post telling me you really love scraps and I'll put you in a drawing for these leftovers. I'll pick a winner on Wednesday night in a random drawing and announce the winner on Thursday's blog post. I've GOT to get these things out of the house! Thank you for your assistance.
