So, since I admire my friends that make scrap quilts I decided to try it. I had this box of Kaffe fabrics leftover from my bright Acorn's Promise quilt. Gee, when I bought those I really thought I would use them all up in Acorn's Promise, but no, there was still a full box when the quilt was finished.
In an effort to avoid feeling guilty, I decided to make some hexagon blocks. Surely, that would use up the scraps! Wrong again, even after the hexies and cutting out borders that pile of fabric is the same size.
And my room is a mess.I'm going to try using them up again with an amazing pattern by Chris Jurd of Patchwork Fundamentals. If I still have this box full when the quilt is finished, I'm thinking of giving it all away. After all, if I make every quilt out of the same box of fabric, they will all look the same!
I worked hard the past few days and cut out all the pieces for the side borders of the hexie quilt and am quite excited to get them appliqued and then do the top and bottom. Someday, hopefully sooner rather than later, I will show it to you.
