I'm joining Kim (and lots of other quilters) in whittling down my supply of scraps. My Quilts to make in 2013 Pinterest board holds images of scrappy LeMoyne star quilts. And I have the scraps, sitting there in my very own magic basket.
The idea of Scrap Basket Sunday is to work on my scrappy lemoyne star blocks once a week (or thereabouts). If I was to work singlemindedly on these blocks, I'd probably get bored after making 10 or 20, and I need about 100 for the quilt. But interspersing them with other projects will keep the novelty going longer, at least that's my theory. Of course, it does postpone the finish, but since I don't know yet how I will set the finished blocks into a quilt, that's ok with me.
This will be my fabric palette for the lemoyne stars. I have lots of partial fat quarters and other bits and pieces in my Fig Tree Collection basket, pieces left from peviously made quilts.
It's time for a test block.
If you would like to join us for Scrap Basket Sundays, go see Kim.
