It's a shame that my real world friends Emily & JoAnne are Blog Lurkers instead of participating in the Bloggosphere of Quilting. Because then they could attest to the fact that in The Real World, I am dangerously spontaneous. And yet, I am deathly afraid of scrap quilts.
In the real world, I learned to ride a motorcycle 10 months ago. I bought a Big Ass 1800cc bike to learn on and I spend sunny days riding with a group of people that thinks that "high of 50 degrees" (10C) is enough of an excuse to ride.
I'm OK if I can keep them well behaved, which generally means "limited palate" and "rules".
Here's the design wall for my yellow & grey quilt.
The left side are the random bits leftover from some
strips from the other sections.
Today I started putting together the predominantly white with black bits, as well as some of the wider strips of yellow in the hopes that I could put together a 16" wide strip, 90" long ...that wouldn't freak me out.
Here, you can see where I sewed the individual sections into sets of 2-3.
This is me, trying to tame the scraps.
Based upon what I see on-line, I'm afraid that I am the only quilter with color-mixing-scrappiness-issues. Please let me know if I am not alone, and you are interested in joining my support group.
