I have spent the last few days here at the Starry Home Crafts Studio
cutting scraps of fabric. I have been saving these scraps in big tins and jars for years. I finally took the time to cut them into 5 inch right down to 1 inch squares and strips. At some point during the third day of this, my husband came along and said "aren't you getting sick of this yet?". I thought for a moment and realized that, no, I could go on and on cutting up these tiny little pieces, because with each new color and size, I can see just the little quilt that this will go into. Those 3 inch squares will be baby quilts and appliqued flowers some day. And those 2 inch squares can be sewn together to make triangle squares for tiny pinwheels and stars. Add those to some 1 and 1/2 inch squares and you have thousands of design options. I really have no idea yet what the 1 inch squares will be. Stay tuned for That project. Oh, and the leftover scraps, too small to cut up, what about those? Well of course I saved them. I even saved them by color. Someday, they will be part of a fabric landscape. And when I just couldn't stand to seperate the colors anymore, or a fabric had too many colors to fit into one jar, I stuck all of that together in a tin. They'll be the stuffing for a primitive Patchwork Girl of OZ I intend to make some day. All in all, my New Year is starting out with inspiration galore. I wish all of you a wonderful, inspirational, and prosperous year.
