Putting My Playtime To Work
I'm making totes/grocery bags with the playtime methods I've learned here and in my liberated quilters group, with a large log cabin on each side of the grocery bags. The bag fabrics are leftovers from small cuts of old fabric (I generally buy only 1/3 yard pieces for variety). I stitched a fabric to the log cabin, then trimmed the fabric with scissors and went on to the next fabric in my pile. I usually use scissors, not rotary cutter, for liberated scrap patchwork-it's faster to trim with scissors and makes me more liberated, I think.
It's fun to see a finished product from my fabric play; the bags will be donated to my library for the Book and Plant Sale "teacup auction" Wish you all could come!
