I hope you are not bored with my Scrap Vortex reports: I am loving it so much and at the moment it is just about all the sewing I can manage (though I hope to have a finish for Friday this week).
If you haven't had a look at Amanda Jean's really helpful posts and you have a bag of scraps (anyone out there who doesn't?), follow this link, which includes the previous posts, and have a go; it is really good fun once you get over the initial shock and into the groove.
The process does make a bit of a mess, admittedly, but I like to ignore the mess on the floor and focus on the wonderfully neat (once you have squared up) blocks which you will have made from scraps which many people would have thrown away.
I have layered my larger pieced blocks on my design board to give an idea of how it will look once they are all joined together - not quite at that stage yet.
I am thrilled at how many of my scraps have been transformed and made to live a useful and beautiful life as part of a wonderful quilt: what more could a small piece of fabric aspire to? It's a sort of immortality...
I am also progressing my Scrapper's Delight quilt and using up the bigger strips now as the blocks grow. Even better working on two quilts at a time, and you won't be surprised to hear that I am chain piecing everything!
Still very much work in progress, but I do feel there is real progress now that the pieces are bigger. Linking to Lee at Freshly Pieced: WIP Wednesday. A Kaleidoscope Quilt like hers is on my to-do list but it will have to wait a while longer...
