I'm sorry I've a lurker lately!
I have had a bunch of projects to wrap up, and school staritng
and family visiting, BASICS quilt drive stuff etc. blah blah blah...
But I am back, and settled...
I thought about starting another sew along... But thought I'd leave it up to you.
I wanted to share my latest 15 minute inspiration...while SHOPPING!
I found this shirt at TARGET. I walked by it twice, and thought..Hmmm,
I like the weird color combo!
Warms and cools, it felt very much like the weather lately...
summer turning to fall! So,
just like that, TWO XXL shirts jumped into my cart...
Of course I came home and took 15miutes to pull fabrics,
and another 15 minutes to sort through my 7 scrap bins to pull pieces
I thought would be fun to use for a FALL quilt.
I want a big ol' scrappy 15 minute block quilt.
After seeing the ones that we all made when I started this site, I decided,
it's time to make another!
If you want to sew along, comment here, and
go find a piece of CLOTHING, hopefully something you already own and
that you can part with...
Or hit the GOODWILL and find something that has a color combo you
Don't usually work with.
I'm planning on making 10-15 blocks a week.
This will be my 15 MINUTES of PLAY TIME while I am
finishing up some other BIG quilts.
I just made 5 blocks
using my 5 sided technique, and it didn't take me 30 minutes...
If you go round your shape once with some biggish pieces,
you can get a 6.5'' block pretty fast.
Then I use my 6.5" ruler, lay it on, and cut it out... Likety split...
I'm trying to use a piece of the shirt in each block....
we'll see how far I get with two XXL shirts!
I'd love to have a few people playing along...
Seeing what you all are doing for 15 minutes keeps me inspired!
I'm ALSO goign to start playing with setting ideas for our BOM blocks.
I'm a few behind on that,But I will get there...
So go find some INSPIRATION!
Then come back
and show us so we all can be inspired!!!
