What do quilters do when the world is a crazy place?
They maintain their sanity by sorting scraps and sewing quilt blocks. I took Wednesday off as a midweek gift to myself, and opened up a parcel I received earlier in the week. It was a surprise gift of scraps from my quilt guild friend Joan. These are the leftover pieces of her New Zealand fabrics.
I spread out the scraps and cut pieces for the scrappy projects I have in progress... 1" strips, 1.5" strips and squares, and the larger pieces went in the bin for strip quilts.
I sewed one waffle block from Joan's scraps and cut many more squares to be sewn into more waffle blocks. But this one is all New Zealand.
I also made some interesting Easy Breezy blocks from these scraps...so much movement in some of these fabrics! Thank you Joan for the wonderful surprise!
