My sewing group is having a two day meeting to try a pattern new to us. The "binding tool quilt" from Missouri Star Quilt Co. I got the tool last weekend so now I am choosing fabrics.
The culled strips placed in groups of four ready for cutting out.
Do you all have a hard time choosing fabrics for a project?
This is not a pattern I would choose but I want to join in the fun with my friends.
I decided not to do a formal repeated color block, but to enjoy some of my collection. Originally I started by pulling a gradation of color from my yardage stash but quickly got tired of the stiffness of the look. That's when I turned to scraps!
I am doing something in the middle.
As you can see I tried to instill some order by gradating light to dark, while leaving room for fun.
We sort of lead each other through construction and choices and enjoy seeing what each other is making.
Of course there will be lunch.
Now I need to do the pre-cutting so it will feel like a kit!
I get to use some special bits of fabric and the scrap bin will be even more overflowing after removing all these!
