WIP Wednesday . . . a Little Amy Butler Love

I started this week by starting a new project.

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 calling . . . no shouting my name. I just felt the urge to make something with these gorgeous Amy Butler fabrics. Maybe it's a touch of spring fever because the colors really spoke to me. So yummy, so fresh and spring like. I've had many of them for awhile and recently added a few others to the mix. They just needed to come together.  : )

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.

I have the hardest time throwing away these tiny little trimmings? There's something about slivers of fabric that I just love. I've been known to save piles and piles of them. Always think they would make the most colorful bird's nests but of course I never get around to doing anything with them.

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.    : )
