The first pile of scraps I loved was all the cut off bits from sewing the paper pieced arc blocks. I turned those scraps into a quilt called "Shattered" which I finished in 2013.
Now I am smitten with the scraps from the sides of the IOP blocks which are cut off before sewing the curved seams to attach the arcs.
See the half moon shape I just cut off there?
I decided to put all the half moon scraps on the design wall to see how it might look. It was so fun to play with various layouts, and I came up with this idea.
Oh my goodness! YUM!
Now I can't focus on the Indian Orange Peel blocks because I am detoured by these lovely scraps.
I think I have a problem and may need someone to save me from myself!! LOL
