Okay, so I sort of have a bit of a problem with fabric scraps.
And then there’s this:
And there are three or four shoebox-size boxes of other colors.
Oh, and I almost forgot this bin in the closet:
I would like to make a dent in this, however, as it’s starting to feel a bit overwhelming and taking up a fair amount of space in my small sewing room. I’m starting to have that slightly-frantic HELP TOO MUCH STUFF feeling in here.
I saw this on someone’s blog (sorry, whoever it was, I don’t remember who you are to give you credit!), spotted the blue version with the hand embroidery and thought YES.
You have the option to just put a square of fabric in the center of each block, do hand or machine applique there, or embroider it.
Here are the fabrics I have in mind for the blocks:
And the setting triangles and binding will be made from the fabric I bought in Pendleton the other day:
I’m thinking about using the blocks to make a runner for my ginormous dining room table.
This is a great stashbusting project because you only need 1/4 to 1/3 yard of each of the six block fabrics, then you can use the blocks however you want, depending on what other fabric you have (fabric requirements here).
