You’re probably wondering, what is this mess? Pleasant Home is having a Sew Scraps Along. Every Tuesday and Thursday there will be a tutorial and lots of inspiration the other days of the week. Yesterday I saw the first tutorial and decided to do something with my scraps. Last night I ironed a pile of my red, white, and blue scraps. Now I have to cut them into 2.5” and 4.5” squares which will not be easy. Every time I go to make a cut, a little voice inside me says, what if you need this for an applique. Or, what if you need just this size for another quilt. Then I get realistic. These scraps have been in my scrap bin for over a year. Every time I need a certain color for an applique, I don’t go through my scraps, I go to my stash. My scrap pile just keeps growing. Now is the time to take action. I WILL cut these this afternoon! I will!
I have another project I want to get involved in. I want to learn to do free motion quilting. Leah Day is having a Quilt Along Wednesday Free Motion Quilting video. On Wednesdays, she will post a video showing the design(s) she’ll be working on, how to use it, and tips on how to quilt it. Check it out here.
