I'm doing something different for me. I visited the blog of the designer of the Sherbet Pips fabric line for Moda http://www.comfortstitching.typepad.co.uk/. because I loved the images in the fabric, as so many others did. The designer, Aneela Hoey, began a casual qal of crazy blocks using scraps. I joined in because oy, do I have scraps. But also because it was a different kind of block, not anything I have done before. Now, these blocks look very different and it took me a few to appreciate their cuteness. The idea is to have a center image and sew scraps around it until the block measures 11 inches. Here are some of mine:
I was at a loss at what to use for the center image and then in my scraps I found my cupcake fabric. Aneela suggested we sort our scraps into colors and each block is made with one color. It works great, and my scraps are getting used up so nicely. I've made 12 blocks, and need to make 20 or 30.
It really works to horde fabric. You never know when the perfect quilt block will come your way:)
God Bless You.
