|I held her as much as I could get away with - unfortunately, I had to share with others.|
While sewing, I also cut hundreds, literally HUNDREDS, of scraps into squares for use in future projects in an attempt to tame my mountains of scraps. But some of the scraps didn't get cut up. Instead, I experimented with a string quilt block I found online earlier today.
I know it is bold of me to use orange as the strips around the center of the block, but I had some orange strips already cut, so I thought "What the heck?" After all, the point is to use up scraps I already have, not make new ones. I love the finished quilts at the end of the string quilt block post - I'm hoping I'll love my version, too!
I'm glad I made that list of goals at the beginning of the month - it is helping me to focus my efforts when I go down into the sewing room.
