do you cut up blocks and play?
I had this block I didnt like
I love the colors
but not the large scale of the pattern
in this design
so it was a UFO block
for a very long time
until recently I cut it up a little
I put it on point and made
an 8 inch block out of it
for my slab quilt
see? didnt like it any better but it is
all sewn up so why waste it?
into the slab row quilt you go
and I have cutoffs to play with
yeah they are pretty big
and this may be another block
that I sew and cut down to 8 inches
we will see
love playing in the stash
that was only a few minutes worth of work
I grabbed one of my strip bins that was overflowing
and went to work stitching
log cabin kinda style until I got
some pieces longer than 8x8
cut it into 8 inch block and sewed some moe
easy made two more
and two more
power sewing is so much fun
so this morning before work I added 6 blocks to the 8inch slab quilt
better get ready for work now!
are you having fun in your stash?
