Do you save tins specifically to store your sewing items?
These are some of the tins I can see around me right now... a Christmas cookie tin to save little triangles, a chocolate tin to keep all my large clips together, and an Easter Lindt tin to keep large basting pins at the ready.
My son recently sent me this little blurry video clip that reminded him of trying steal cookies as a kid. Can your kids relate?!? Poor hungry kids looking for a treat, only to find the tin full of thread and pins. LOL!
I save pretty tins when I come across them, and this is the one that has been chosen to hold the 1" scraps for my Omigosh project. The tin is exactly the same size as the pattern, so everything can be kept together for when I feel like working on it.
Now I am trying to decide how scrappy to make the little double 9 patch blocks. The pattern calls for completely unorganized scrappy style, which I might do a bit of, but mostly I think I will want to co-ordinate the blocks a bit more because I like doing that.
But do I want the blocks to be different colour 9 patches with the same background square fabrics (top block), OR do I want scrappy background squares and all the 9 patch blocks to be the same colour (bottom blue block) ?
Do you have any advice and/or words of wisdom for me as I start making blocks for Omigosh??
