I've said it before......I'll say it again.
ONE quilter's trash...
ANOTHER quilter's TREASURE!!!!
These tiny scraps came from a bag given to me
by a quilter who was overwhelmed with the mess.
Some of us like fabric folded neatly in thirds...or...fourths...etc...
Some of us like raggedy bags of jumbled scraps!!!!
Guess who I am???
I DO fold my fabric......most of the time.......
but, I also LOVE those nondescript bags of SCRAPS!!!!!
I sewed the scraps together after determining a loose color scheme.
I found a backing...
Just the right size!!.....in my cupboard.
I added some wool batting...leftover from a previous project.
I then basted the WHOLE thing with some
BIG. UGLY. STITCHES.
It will hold together nicely when I go to hand quilt!!!
Here are the orange embroidery flosses I found in my box of thread.
They're not all the same exact color.
You know what???
I'm not sure that matters!
I now have a new little "take along"
