In my defense.... my brain is a little overloaded as well... so I might as well have it all out there... right?
I have been working on using my scraps, finishing projects, working on new ideas, and back to scraps ..... and you know how you work on stuff and it doesn't seem like you are making any progress - and then BAM!!! There's a lot almost done at once???? No??? you don't? You must be one of those organized quilters I dream of becoming..... some day!
Are you ready for the full disclosure..... can you handle the truth?
My design wall.... I will not tell you how many projects are up there - but you can see at least.... well.... three???
So let's peel it off - this is the heart blocks - (Tutorial found Here) I only completed 9 of the RSC color challenge blocks. BUT!! It is Nine more than I had at the beginning of the year - so I am good with that. It is going into top stage Right! Smack! now!
And then under that - peaking out to the right hand side are my Scrappy Logs. I have most of my scraps organized into these little bins, and when the bins overflow - I have to do something. This has been year of the Red's and Blues.....
|I made this from the bin|
|And made this one from the bin|
And even after those two quilts.... I still have full bins - so I have been making these wonky log cabin blocks as leader ender type blocks.... I say type, because sometimes they are all I work on before my time is up.
My advice to myself. Do not put the bins away until they are empty.
I have the room on my table - so why not! Plus I have 8 more blocks in progress.
They finish at 12 1/2 inches so it will be at least one quilt when its all done.
And that is my scrappy advice for the month!
