Wheels are turning!

Okay, it took me a while to get to this project but here I am!
I definitely spent more than 15 minutes playing.. 

I started out with the box. 
I had all these scraps from this previous quilt I made during my early days of blogging!

Initially, I thought of making an Anna Williams inspired quilt. That is how this square was born!
I soon realized that I will not be doing the justice to the process because most of these scraps are already pieced together. 

So, now I am wondering....

Should I make the scrappy wheels?


You see, the scraps are already in this shape..long triangles.. with skinny points! 

Grow some flowers to put in those baskets 
Light the fireworks?

May be, turn that basket upside down and make a house.. 

I wonder how Anna Williams' house would look like!

I know my sewing room looks just like this..  

Too much to consider!


I am going to take a glass of wine and, 

  go inside the tent and think about it for next fifteen minutes!

Have you had your fifteen minutes of fun today?

Those are fun ideas and great ideas to use with scraps.

I adore the framed box block, and think it would make a great quilt, maybe repeated blocks, with sashing - imho. Your house block looks like a hut in Tahiti! Also like the spokes on the grey background; they would really stand out like this. Just my thoughts, but I'm excited to see what becomes of these. Little pieces are just so exciting, aren't they?!

ALL OF THE ABOVE PLEASE!!!! What fun would that be!!! Go crazy! I love it! and you make me laugh Sujata!

Jan, the reality is that I get so many ideas and not enough time. Ideally, I would like to implicate all of these. May be not the wine glass...never had one of those but it sounded good! I personally like the spokes with the background too. I am going to have to see what happens as I progress with this :)

Thanks, you guys!
I am going to really mix it up and make them all. It is going to be an interesting quilt. May be a nice mix of Anna and Gwen!

Whoa! Those are great! I think my personal favorite is the basket idea, followed by the house. What wonderful scraps you have!

You could even do a tumbler type shape quilt with those wedges! What fun!

:0) this made me smile so much. thankyou! i really like the spokes and plain background, though perhaps that wont use up as much stash as you'd like?!
