Not me. I sit at my beloved machine and mindlfully sew them together while listening to a book on disc.
I almost love this kind of piecing best... no big decisions yet I enjoy seeing how prints and shades look next to each other. Seeing the lines develop and look when trimmed into diamonds is very satisfying.
Finally the orange scrap bin is getting down to the ones hard to use. They might need to become squares for watercolor quilts.Look at the scale/size next to my hand....
If it weren't for this year-long challenge to use scraps, one color at a time, I might not be making these fun quilts.
I have friends who think I am cuckoo to work with such small pieces.
My answer is look at what comes from them!
I feel free to mix pattern and color with them.
Since they are so small there is no worry of waste.
When you cut into a yard of beautiful fabric you might feel anxiety that you should use it in the "right" way.
One of my favorite artists is Klimt.
These remind me of his use of pattern, line and color.
These are not sewn together yet. All the possibilities are still open.
They became a star??
