Rainbow scrap challenge this month is to use our neutral light scraps and I continued with a few blocks.
and I want the strips to be different lengths and maybe uneven in width, I don't care if they are frayed, I place the right sides together and sew. As long as the long straight seam allows them to lay flat when pressed, it adds to the surprise in the block. I make them til they are about the same size.
To work this way you have to release your critic, you have to find joy in the unexpected, and believe it will all work out in the end. And it does. Sometimes I need to trim a bit off one to make them go together, or add a little to another.
Nature is ordered in a random way and so are these blocks.
I also auditioned fabrics for the geese quilt
I turned one piece to the back, I rejected many for being too light, too dark, too patterned, wrong tone but in true Murphy's law, the ones that work the best I have the least of!!
I painted this week, the pictures were on yesterday's post ( HERE )but I wanted to mention to the quilters out there how I used these sheets in the printer...
