|Nothing but scraps and nothing but fun!|
I've been making this design up as I go along, in fits and spurts between sewing other projects. I love the freedom of this method of quilt building and it's been a great way to gobble of scraps and leftover bits from other projects. It's also very relaxing and creatively stimulating for me. It's like going for a walk without worrying which route to take or being concerned about the time spent - it's about the pleasure of the journey. Does that make any sense?
Anyways, I know this style of quilt making isn't for everyone. It's a bit too much chaos for one of my in house supporters, while another loves this kind of creation.
I've got more block building to do and I'm still working on the final layout, but I do have some blocks sewn into sections. I see it as a puzzle and I'm quite happy moving those pieces around to find the right "fit". ;o)
It's a lovely backdrop and close at hand (for puzzle piece moving ;o) whenever I sit down to stitch. I'm trying to keep it lap sized, but this kind of fun is easy for me to get carried away with. It feels good to have a "no rules" project on the go to offset my other projects and work.
Wishing you some fun creative time this week!
