Not that I needed to start something new. I have plenty of nearly finished things that should have taken precedence. Two quilts with binding sewn on just waiting for the hand stitching. Two patterns almost done. Another one in the planning stages. Two bee blocks due very very soon. Plenty that I should have worked on . . .
But these fabrics were
A quilt design I reworked a little fit these fabrics perfectly. I pulled a couple of solids to go with the prints and started cutting. Soon I had a nice little pile of these lovelies.
Do you save tiny trimmings like these? If so, what do you do with them?
The quilt is going to together quite quickly. I'm thinking it will make a great pattern so another project gets added to my growing list. Eventually I will get all of them finished. In the meantime, it's multiple projects in various stages but I think that's what keeps me going. Maybe I have quilter's ADHD. : )
Linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday. Go check out what everyone else has going on.
So pretty! And you're right very Springy! You're using some of my favorite AB fabrics :-)ReplyDelete
Such lovely AB prints! I can understand why they'd be shouting at you! And honestly, why not start a new project? Gotta stay inspired and enjoy the quilting journey!ReplyDelete
I add my unusable cotton scraps to the doggie bags my guild makes for the aspca. Trimmings can be used to stuff toys or pillows, but they make them very dense & heavy unless mixed with larger & lighter pieces. Otherwise they go in the compost pile where they break down quickly, or birds can use them if they get them in time.ReplyDelete
you can't say no when amy calls you! I sure wouldn't. =) it looks great! and very spring-y.ReplyDelete
I use my trimming for stuffing, too. I've been thinking maybe I should put them in a bag and throw them in the wash to make them more frayed and fluffy because the bits I've cut off prewashed fabrics before have been so nice and soft.
if the trimmings are an inch wide, you can still use them for a tickertape scrap project or some paper piecing.
I just love AB's color choices! I love this and it is so spring-y! It just screams flowers, time outside, and allergy meds! LOL!ReplyDelete
Such pretty fabrics. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt. Like you I have a gazillion projects to finish but I always feel the tug of starting something new. There's just something about the excitement attached to a new beginning. Enjoy the onset of Spring, both outside your door and at your sewing machine.ReplyDelete
Well this looks very springy! Enjoy your sewing and I look forward to seeing moreReplyDelete
Love me some AB. That mint color is fantastic!ReplyDelete
Love, love, love this fabric! These photos makes me smile!ReplyDelete
What beautiful fabrics.ReplyDelete
I love the Amy Bulter fabrics you used and the pattern looks great. May I ask what the color solid you are using? I love the light aqua color.ReplyDelete
It's looking beautiful! Yes, save those yummy trimmings. I save everything. It eventually gets fused to make the background of an art quilt.ReplyDelete
So pleased to have found your lovely blog and designs! I am new to quilting and have been looking for simple modern designs that show off my kaffe fassett and amy butler fabricsReplyDelete
