Me and my sewing room had a chance for some bonding time this weekend, ahhh bliss, hours of uniterupted sewing!
Remember this block? Well I thought about it, and thought about it, and thought about it some more, and just decided that it was too big to make it work in a quilt in any capacity I had in mind. The more I looked at it, the more it just looked like a giant block of blue wonky spit up, and it really needed to be cut down.
This is what is occupying my design wall right now, and I am proud to say that these blocks were made 100% out of my scrap bins! I am really happy with the decision to cut the big blocks down, but whats funny, after adding the borders, these "smaller" blocks still measure about 16 1/2 inches square, vs. the "big" unaltered scrap blocks measured 18 1/2 inches square!
I'm half temped to put together one more blue block and sew this together with some white sashing and call it a day! I have quickly realized that blues and greens completely dominate my stash compilation, so I think I and going to set this project aside, as I have plans to cut into my Central Park fat quarter bundle, which will leave me with many more pinks, purples and orange scraps.
I also had time this morning to put together these little Nook covers for a coworker who asked if I would make one for her and her sister. I used Amy's magnetic snap tutorial on my own this time, and was able to put both these covers together in less than 2 hours this morning.
