playing in the parts bin


ever go in your sewing room
but dont know what you want to work on?
that was the kind of day so I pulled the
bin with all the parts blocks
you know the ones you made and you dont know
why.......
and I pulled my strip bag to see what I could make




this flying geese piece was calling me 
so I added the coin strips to each side
and 2 strips of 2 1/2
hmmm I like it
then I took those little
9 patches that I had made
just because JulieRose and sent me the turquoise one
on the left and it was so darned cute



and added more coins and pieces


until I was happy with the general size



I am going to layer this and quilt it up
to make myself a sewing machine cover
with ties at the sides
I like it very much
and Julie a part of YOU
 is in here too


look at those old fabrics
like old friends.........
what are you making today?

Great idea. No sewing for me, heading to boy scout camp.

You made great use of your parts bin and Julierose's contribution fits nicely.
