Fed up with nagging him to revise, I have found myself joining in with an informal quilt-a-long over on Instagram that Katy blogged about here and I am blaming that Peppermint Patcher for giving me the final push! I've been long collecting ideas on Pinterest for making a scrappy quilt and this one fits the bill perfectly.
My worktable had accumulated a sprawling pile of fabrics that were the leftovers from the last few projects I've been working on so I made a start by cutting a 2½" strip from each of them before I put them away.
I have to confess, it's addictive. My only rule is that I try not to duplicate a fabric for each strip, so that's 216 different fabrics required. Blushing, I am going to confess that my fabric stash will allow me to achieve this! A lot of it is scrap though ; )
I'd forgotten how satisfying the image above is to me. A pile of potential fabric goodness.
Six blocks done, a sixth of the way through, and a snapshot of my fabric collection. It feels oddly liberating to be making something with no agenda and just being able to trust my instinct.
