Monday April 25, 2011

My design wall actually has much more on it this morning than this.  But due to a very busy Easter weekend my camera battery is dead and I cannot take pictures right now to show the progress.

I "think" I've decided that I like it having the blue center. Right now that is the layout.  I have also removed most of the lighter colors in the blue and red.  They muddy up the breaks between the lights and darks. 

Since my scraps have been getting out of control I thought 2 1/2" squares would be a good way to make this quilt and use up some of those piles.  However, I am sure it is not going to make much of a dent.

This is part of my scrap disaster.  I can say that as of right now the scraps are out of the brown paper bags (there were five bags) but the large tote hasn't changed much.  I just have not added to it.  It's just a good thing that I have a sewing room because I could see my whole house being consumed by scraps.  Hard to believe that I love scrap quilts so much but have so little control over the mess.
Enjoy your Monday.  Hope you are able to get to your sewing projects often this week.  And don't forget to check out the design walls at Patchwork Times.

I agree with you about the blue center. It is my favorite of the two :)

I really like the top layout, it is so bright and cheery. And I agree about scraps. And when I am working on scraps (scrap, string, or even applique quilt) my studio becomes a horrible mess. And I hate cleaning up. ;-)
