First Scrap Blocks

April 17, 2008 at 8:08 am 4 comments

Here are the first large blocks for the scrap quilt. As I mentioned before, I’ve so far only used truly scrap fabric. Despite having most of the big blocks either sewn or cut, I have not made the slightest dent in the scrap bag. I truly believe that I can construct this entire lap size quilt from the scrap bag and not so much as touch a fat quarter in my stash. Oh yeah, and I’d probably still have scrap to spare. This is not how I had envisioned it. I have some fun and beautiful stash fabrics that I thought I’d bust out. But I can’t ignore the thrift and practicality of it all, not to mention the challenge. I guess I’ll just have to save my lovelies for another day.

    They are so different from each other yet they look so good sitting next to each other. Very nice!
