national quilting monthMarch 2, 2022
Hello all, Mary Ellen here,
I’ll be glad to see the end of 2021. Hoping that 2022 will bring the end of all of our COVID travails.
I’ve started on a long overdue clean up of all of the fabric scraps I’ve saved. First I decided to throw away the small scraps that I thought I’d be using in paper foundation piecing. That made a lot of space in the 2 bins. I had originally divided the scraps into lights and darks–but I found that there was a lot of crossover. How light is light? How dark is dark? I now have them sorted by color–using the great big ziplock bags which I then put into the 2 bins. Novelties are in their own bag, black/gray in theirs, and browns in theirs. Do you have a good system for scraps? I’d like to get them organized into some method where I’d be more apt to actually use them!
A few years back I posted about a fellow who walked quilt designs into the snow. Here’s a National Geographic video of the same sort of thing. Some of his musings about his art would apply to quilting, I think. See if you agree.
