In honor of Fall, the cute small (about 20" X 24") quilt above was made with fall scraps, from a pattern I got from canadianneedlenana (maybe from this source. ) I love the little bird and would make that again
|note little fussy cut fall images in stars|
fussy cut words in the pumpkin stars too. I love this orange fabric with crows!
I admit, it was hard to allow myself to cut into the hoarded rust colored moda fabric to bind it. Feels wasteful to use pretty fabrics on backing or binding to me but it was perfect. Now to hang it in the family room to enjoy and maybe bring on cool weather.
as I mentioned before, my friend Jan at colorfulfabricholic, sent me her project scraps from making a kaleidoscopr quilt last year. I love getting scraps but especially when they are all from a project. Weird angles, all go together, and I can just play with abandon!
from the tiniest pieces came my favorite item so far, the long banner on the left.

When you make a kaleidoscope quilt a la Ricky Tims, you have a lot of angular strip scraps left.
|see the tiny strips added to make them work?|
I cobble together left overs, making them work, try to balance colors, sew in strips if needed. I turned a set of 4 the same size into a runner by adding in corner pieces of black and one of my halloween prints for a border... it says faintly happy halloween in gray!
I separated painting from sewing this week, doing a paint party Friday post yesterday
I would love it if you went to see what I painted this week. Color is color, art is all good, and painting informs my quiltmaking.
