Just playing

I'm a bit in between projects right now (who am I kidding I have about half a dozen up in the air!)...
I'm at a breaking point on a couple of my projects - waiting for supplies on a couple of them, waiting for further instruction on another. 


I didn't want to start anything new, but came across these random tiny blocks from a year ago. I decided to play with them a little bit. Give them some fresh air and bring them out of the dark closet for a little bit. 

I added a couple borders and pieced a couple of the blocks into sections. I was really diving into it, and I kept thinking, "What should I do with this quilt? Who can I give it to that would actually appreciate it for it's craziness?" It hit me, my sister. :) So this one is going to you Roseann! I hope she likes it. I have no solid layout in my head. None.

So far I'm thinking scrappy but with a limited color combo (limited pink and purple), and I may attempt to come up with a cool quote or something to write in free-pieced letter blocks. 

Don't you just love it when a random sewing night really ignites a lot of fun ideas? I'm excited to keep working on this!!

  1. it is so exciting to get that boost of creative energy when you are just working with what you've got. I am liking the fun/crazy style so far and i bet Roseann will be excited about the randomness too!

  2. Isn't it great to bring unfinished stuff out of the closet? I think it almost feels better than working on new, cuz your piece didn't get purged! Looks like you have a lot of fun stuff on your blog to search through. Thanks for sharing.
