mid month

I have a large bag of scraps. Any one want them? Seriously... Getting through your stash one scrap at a time is very slow.
I have not bought any fabric in the month of January.
I am working on some 14.5 inch stars using all scraps..... have 6 blocks completed.

Something old...Some thing new..

Starting the 350 block count for 2017.  I picked up a pack of 9 patches at a state meeting. The fabrics were very very traditional ie I believe the 70's with that dusty rose pink.  Forgive me if you love that color but I certainly dont.  I tried a disapearing  nine patch. That looking pretty bad to me.  Mind you the blocks did not have contrasting
value. Than I got the idea to miss two blocks together. The result was chaos.  And I WASTED alot of time trying to improve it.  Finally it was give up or ... It is a small swiss dot and it does lie flat
I hadn't ironed enough before the photo. It  is a lap quilt now... Hopefully some one will love it.(Donation scrappy quilt one 17 blocks.

Final Count down two and three

Two clear surfaces.... This was a great one as I had clear and clean to pit 4 people in my sewing room. There is a clear reality that a clean surface needs stuff on it. I have triangles laid on on one, and cut down squares from scraps on the second.

Than I sewed.

Three: Commit to a year of.... I commit to using the fabric that I have.  Which is enough to cover most of the eastern sea board.
