I could not help myself. I had to get started with my scrap swap project. First is a collage of some of the the fabrics I received- Thank you Karen A. I think overall most of what I received are in the warm category. I think I am in the cool color category so I had to do some thinking about how to use these new scraps.
First, I sorted some to be added to my Color Challenge box (lower left corner). Then I guess I just can not really do "Random" so I pulled out a collection of pinks and turquoise. (lower right corner). These were selected to go with a large
piece of pale pink/turquoise that I wanted to use .
Then the fun part Making Fabric!! Compare this to a piece that I had make earlier from my own stash. I think I need some brighter/lighter colors in my scrap basket.
My Fabric Collection
New made fabric from Swap Collection
And here is where I am going with this. 1/2 square triangles. A pretty rough layout, but you can get the idea of how the made fabric works with my background. This should make a cheerful charity quilt.
Now off to the Internet to search for 1/2 square triangle layout ideas. I hope to back soon with more of this done, but I do have a very long to do list so unfortunately it may take a while. I hope everyone else enjoys this as I have.
