What is a scrap?
Does it qualify if you are making a "scrappy" quilt but the "scraps" have been cut from yardage or fat quarters?
I'm inclined to say "yes." So here's my entry for Scrap Happy Saturday.
Inspired by seeing completed examples of Cynthia Brunz' pattern Geese Migration, I pulled out the one I started earlier in the year.
Each block has five different flying geese united by a single solid fabric "sky" ...
... and fifteen different 2-1/2" squares
I am trying to have no more than two blocks with the same color sky. With a planned 32 blocks, that's a lot of "scrap."
I wanted to add some more fabrics for variety and I needed to make a few more blocks. But, most of all, I needed to figure out where I stood in the process (YIKES!)
So I put finished blocks up on the wall and matched them up with their kitted up "sisters." I had almost all of the geese units assembled ...
... and used the design wall to start laying out the squares where needed.
My goal is to assemble at least two blocks each day so that I can lay out the quilt on a large design wall at retreat in August.
Of course, I have generated a lot more "scrap" in this process. I am making some HSTs as leaders/enders but I will have piles of 2-1/2" squares left over. Any ideas?
Linking up with Cynthia at Quilting is more fun than housework.
