I actually did have a purpose for sorting my scraps the other night. You know, other than "I just felt like making a mess and discombobulating myself".
I've been dying to make this
|Maple Leaf Rag from Material Obsession 2|
My plan while sorting the scraps was to find all of those tiny pieces that I've been hoarding, that I couldn't bear to throw away, and the strips.
is so far being transformed into some crazy quilting pieces
They need to be large enough to cut the pattern template out of. Which I of course sent to work with my husband with instructions to cut a piece from the acrylic sheet I bought.
I so didn't need to start another project right now but I figured this one is going to be like the string quilt I made, tedious and repetitive. So I thought I'd keep that little scrap bin handy and when I had a lull in the day, or only a few minutes to sew something together, I can whip up a few of these and just tackle it a little at a time.
And as if the table wasn't overcrowded enough, the UPS man added to it yesterday
This is for a commission job, the rest of it will be here tomorrow and I can get to work. It will be a queen size quilt, but a fairly easy one. I'm hoping to be able to knock it out pretty fast.
