Last night at bedtime I started on my intuition quilt. I stayed up until 3:00 a.m. working on it! What a blast.
This is what inspired me. As I was going upstairs to get started, this scrap accosted me at the bottom of the stairs. I have no idea how or when it got there. I had not noticed it earlier in the day. (My husband looked at me like I was nuts when I took this picture.)
I picked up the scrap and used it as the starting point for a log-cabin style block. I have this big bag of tiny scraps that my sister gave me. I was planning to just pull from there and start sewing. I love sewing scraps together in log cabin rotation.
It was frustrating that all the pieces in the bag were so tiny. I did use some of them, for size and color variety. But mostly I concentrated on greens from my own scrap bin (larger size scraps). I chose greens because of this fabric with the veiny leaves. It is leftover from a quilt I just finished for my daughter. I'm trying to get at least some of it in almost every block, at least in the beginning.
So I made my first 12-incher in log cabin style and was having fun, so I kept up the pattern... a beigey center piece, surrounded by random greens. I have these four squares done and a bunch more started. I don't think my whole quilt will be log cabins, but for now that's what I'm doing for the beginning part. And I'm having fun, and I finally broke out of my sewing burn-out! Wheeee!
