I am one of those people who spread my self very thin with lots of projects going on at the same time. I work in a creative chaos which gets really out of hand some times. When I looked at my sewing room last week it looked like a messy hoarder lives in there. Come to think of it maybe a messy hoarder does live there. I'm not going to tell you about how my creative chaos spills into other parts of the house. As I was to the point of tripping over things I decided to tidy and organize before moving onto my yellow scraps. It always takes so long but worth the effort as I have a nice room to work in now.
So after organizing this:
I managed to make this:
Sorry the light was really bad when I took these two pictures. The bottom points on the white maverick star are pretty tiny and get lost in the busy fabric, but I've decided it's part of the charm. I was inspired to make the patchy maverick star by looking at other peoples posts.
I'm loving checking out everybody's posts and getting ideas for how to use up the scraps. I'm thinking the key to successful scrap busting is organization (not my strong point). I've set myself some goals. I'm going to try to make one medallion block, one large maverick star and one of those patchy blocks with the maverick stars that many of you are doing ......anything else will be bonus. We'll see how I do. You can share any wisdom you have regarding organization if you want. But I can't promise I'll follow it.
Today I'm getting together to sew with two of my friends. I'm working on a comfort quilt for my guild. I'll be working on this disappearing nine patch quilt. I'll include a picture because there is some yellow in this quilt and the yellow in this quilt came from my scraps.
I hope you all enjoy your quilting today. I'm planning to.
