June is yellow month for the Rainbow Scrappers. I found some yellow strips that my friend Barb shared with me to use up ...so fun, love the bananas!
I was getting organized to start cutting some yellow Alamo Star blocks, and got completely distracted with the idea of trying some spool blocks. Last summer Bonnie Hunter suggested making spool blocks as a leader-ender project, but I already had a couple leader-enders on the go, so I resisted starting spools. Until now.
I realized they are the perfect blocks to use up leftover 1.5" strips. Many scraps can be cut to this size and used up in this kind of block. I sorted scraps from my bin and started putting pieces into a "spools" box to cut when I have a chance...and look at the pile that is ready to sew! I even started to feel very organized and hopeful about organizing my sewing room and getting control of the scraps.
So now the problem is that my two "leader-ender" projects are vying to be my primary sewing project, and that is totally defeating the purpose! Maybe the novelty will wear off and I can get back to the projects I'm supposed to be working on!
