Yes, it's true...I've started another project. No, I have not finished the beautiful wool coat from several years ago. No, I have not assembled our wedding album yet. Yes, I do have Christmas gifts to prepare, a book proposal to write and a little cutie pie to play with, but this enormous pile of scraps was calling my name last night.
project-obsessed mommy blogger who let me raid her stash yesterday, my scrap pile grew so big it could no longer be ignored. Originally, I had been thinking of making just a twin-sized quilt, but I think I might have enough to do a big ol' queen sized throw now.
Amy Butler collections, but there's also a few from Joel Dewberry and Urban Chiks thrown in for good measure. It took hours to get everything all cut into strips (I have now learned the importance of neatly pressing my fabric - even my scraps - thank you Miranda!) For a quilt that is supposed to use up all of my leftover scraps, there sure was a big pile of tiny pieces left over when I finally put down the rotary cutter.
