After almost finishing (it’s now being blocked) the last really large project, Autumn, I decided that rather than keep walking through a path to my sewing room, I would work on actually clearing out my “scrap” boxes. Don’t get me wrong…I love using scraps, and especially scappy baby quilts that I make, but I’m on a new mission to use up 3 boxes of my scraps and strips. When scraps and strips from projects go into a scrap box at my house, they are washed, pressed and put away pretty neatly, often colors living nicely together – blue and green in the same box, orange and red together, etc. There is SOME order in my creative chaos!
So I dove in this week and am working on a quilt I think might actually be called “Creative Chaos” when it’s complete…
So go out and make it a great day – and make something beautiful…or nutty…or out of the box!
