After reading what some people had said about the quilt along and what they were using for the fabrics and then sleeping on it I decided that I wanted a scrapier look and not color blocks. I also decided to not just use scraps but to cut into my most favorite prints that I have in yardage.
I don't know about you but when I buy yardage I usually keep them for a certain quilt or use it as yardage ( i.e. for the back of a quilt, blankets) but I never cut into them for just scraps but that is what I did! I am so proud of myself (totally scared to!)
Now for sure I am just going to grab a strip and start sewing without over thinking what is going into the one block. I think I will make a bunch of blocks and then quilt them after I have made a bunch. I think that will be a good assembly line thing.
To help eachother out so that we have as many different scraps as we can (might be hard since we do have the same taste in fabric!) Erin and I are doing a scrap swap. This is my stack that I am mailing to her. Hopefully it all fits into the envelope.
