Boy, I sure have gone crazy with my scraps. I spent one afternoon sorting them for the "play" strips and another bin for strips for my spider web quilt. I also put larger strips in a separate tub for make blocks and a 4th tub of larger pieces that could be cut into blocks or strips. I have so enjoyed the freedom of just grabbing a fabric and stitching away. Some blocks look are pretty and others look like I have just thrown up. But when they all get organized on my design wall, I am sure they will form something beautiful. I slapped them all up just to see what I had going here. I figure it will take me about 3 days to rearrange them 600-700 times before I put them into rows. I am thinking of adding strips around the blocks in either black or red. I am up to 25 blocks. What do you think about the strips?
I like the idea of putting black around all of them.
I like them ALL!!!!!!
Oh, I took a workshop from Helen roddy brown last year. The thing she said was that she always used purple around anything that had a ton of colors already. She felt that purple was the color that pulled it all together.
I also think red works when you have lots of colours.
I encourage everyone to get away from strips... they look great, how else can you make them to get scrappier...
Keep on playing!
I would just mash the blocks together, no sashing at all. Or make long pieced strips like Sujata's Bee blocks start with and use those for sashing!
