I'm still here, alive and well!!!
I've had a pretty stressful couple of months and I'm trying to stay positive and grateful for all the wonderful things that are in my life.
This week I've been busy, as usual but I decided that I have had enough of the endless scraps of fabric floating about. Some of them are still left over from the very first quilts I made!!
Inspired by the many colourful quilts from the book Fresh Quilting linked here and Elizabeth Hartman's book here I fell in love with a block and decided to play.
I tipped all my scraps into a big basket and got simply, scrap happy!!!
I was going to stop at 6 blocks by 6 and make it into a baby quilt but it's quite addictive and I will keep expanding it until I'm happy.
I love the design, the vibrancy and the nostalgic moments I had when lifting out fabric I'd forgotten about. It's been quite a cathartic experience to get involved with my scraps.
The funny thing is that although the basket was full to overflowing when I started ... 42 blocks later, it is still full to overflowing!
