My days are pretty scheduled.
Playtime, nap time, bottles and baby food, ...
So when Lori at Humble Quilts started her newest quilt-a-long
I knew it was the perfect project
to give me some unplanned creative sewing time.
To add to the challenge,
I decided to use the " dump and sew" strategy.
What is that exactly?
Beth at, Love Laugh Quilt,
suggests you dump your scrap bag and see what happens.
The perfect solution for a mini scrappy quilt.
Out came the scraps.
A couple of years ago I passed on most of my scraps,
so what was in there was relatively new.
sometimes you need to ask for someone else's opinion.
I did noticed two themes.
Blacks, browns, blues, shirtings, with a cheddar cheese trail
Leftover Kate Spain, Fig Tree, Sandy Gervais maybe with a bright Raspberry trail.
No problem having two themes.
Just make two quilts.
With a little more sorting
these mountain trails are beginning to take shape.
This has been a great exercise is
exploration and discovery.
Christopher and I must have
a little bit in common.Until Next Time-
