|Stack o' ties!|
Somehow I ended up down a rabbit hole of blog reading, and came across the Quiltmakers Magazine Bitty Block QAL. I'm not sure why, but I got sucked in immediately. Usually I need to ruminate on new ideas for at least a week. This one I jumped into so fast that after waking the dog I sat down and made the first set of blocks.
These guys finish at just 3" (so they're 3.5" right now). I don't even really like bow tie blocks. But, I do love little blocks, and quilts made up of little blocks.
|I see you!|
The first Monday of the month they will post what you need to make. Each block will become a row, and the rows will eventually become a throw-sized quilt.
My plan is to use all scraps. From the scrap bin. No going into my stash. I'm not even really trying to match things up, I'm just looking at contrasts (light/dark, bright/soft, warm/cool). Hopefully this way I'll shrink that scrap bin. Plus, I think that it'll result in a nice and scrappy quilt. Usually I have too much control to allow things to truly become scrappy. It turns out most of the fabrics I use go together anyway (I hope!), so the overall quilt should be busy but somewhat cohesive. Hoping this new project doesn't distract too much from all the projects I'm trying to finish up right now!
