Quilt 1 - Scrappy rose with a swirl
Firstly I handled strips . It took me 2 days to sort through and to pull out the the wider strips (2 inch and over). Then came Quilt 1.
Quilt 2 - Chevron - quilt as you go.
Still had lots of strips. The selection was getting a bit narrower around 2 inches and under. I also noticed that the colors were getting a bit more subdued which really had me itching to add new fabric but I managed to hold myself back.
coming up next ....
I have sorted though the scraps again and removed all triangular shaped pieces. There seem to be a lot of similar ones - mostly unused pieces from older one block wonder quilts and pieces that were trimmed off from the mariners compass quilts I made last year.
By the way , I now have only one (overflowing ) box + a bag of selvedges .
Will keep you updated .- Nonie
