Playing in the scraps


Dunkin found a box of solids
Um MOM
you have a ton of these in here
Even after that modern baby quilt you made



Look at all the pretty colors



I was uh hemmmm. Cleaning out an area and trying to figure out why I had sewn nilly willy so many strips or coins as they call them
Some narrow, some wide. Some short some long. 

So I  started playing by rough cutting a square
Then slicing at an angle
Inserting the coin strip

Some I did once. Another twice
This is called birch trees if I remember right seeing it in blogland


I like it


A lot. So much fun and gave me the creative nudge I needed to start a new project

Another new project you say?
sure

If it makes Mama happy its all good

I hate when I have something and I forgot what I was going to do with it originally.

I love seeing those strips in backing. I've started a few things and never figured out why I started them!!

Glad I'm not the only one who can't exactly remember why a project was started. Dunkin shouldn't visit my craft room...goodness knows what he'll find.

This reminds me of the Birch Trees pattern by Crazy Mom QUilts.
It's a great way to use up little scraps!
