Playing with strata
I had so much fun yesterday, I wanted to play some more today. This time, I grabbed the left over strips from the Nature's Choice fabric I cut the other day. I made some strata, then sliced it all at angles. I also added some Hawaiian fabric scraps for color. Once I played around with it and pieced this 14" square fabric together, I asked myself "What if I . . . . ?" So, I sliced 2 1/2" from each side, the top, and the bottom. Then I added a 2 1/2" inner frame of cream on cream flowers. I made the cut strips longer and added them to the outside. Now, it is a 17 1/2" square.
I have some gray I can use for the next border, then a wider border of the Hawaiian print. I think I am going to grow this one to be a lap quilt. I am so glad I discovered 15 Minutes Play. I love that I can use my scraps in a way that is unique to me. It also pleases me to use as much of my fabric as I can. This is all very good.
