So, I got to thinking......

Now that I finished my project, which I regretfully can't share, I have time to think again. Well, maybe I'm always sort of thinking of my next project, as I am working on my current project.....if that makes any sense.
So what was I thinking about you might ask, or not? About LEFTOVERS of all things. The leftover things I've been pondering over are more than just scraps.
5" x 8"
I have buckets full of QAYG scraps such as all shapes and sizes. I'm always squaring up or cutting down all sorts of quilted blocks. To good to toss but to fussy to join using my regular QAYG methods.
  My thinking got me this far....I'm still experimenting, but I think I'm on to something!!!

These are all scraps from my Ripple Effect I Quilt....some pretty good LEFTOVERS. I need a little more play time with this method, but all sorts of possibilities are clamouring in brain.
Unfortunately, my time at the coast is coming to an end this week....the good thing is I have lots more exciting LEFTOVERS waiting for me in Alberta, that I can't wait to dive into. The bad thing....I heard it was snowing there this morning!!!


  1. Oh no! You can't be leaving already? Please let me know when you are back in town. I wish you all the best enduring the cold!

  2. I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with - safe travels!!

  3. I can not wait to see what you do with these.
    Sorry about the snow, but Spring is coming your way, too :)
    Keep smiling.
    Your blogging sister,
    Connie :)

  4. The large piece in the last photo looks ready for binding...first thing I thought of when I saw it was moonrise on the lake...looks just like trees on the water....awesome!
    Safe trip lady!!:)

  5. Just found your site - love it! Our guild is doing a log cabin challenge and your work is so inspiring. I plan to go through your QAYG tutorials. Thank you!

  6. I LOVE scrap quilts and that's what this will be. No sense in letting those "pieces" lie around when they'll make a beautiful "scrap" quilt :) Enjoy the process....and don't think too much..just put it together. It'll work :)

  7. Hi there! I was snooping around google for a Modern quilt shop in Victoria and came upon your site. Your blog is wonderful! We are coming to Victoria again in April and I was wondering if there is a shop that carries Modern fabrics and such? I'd appreciate any help

  8. Hi!!!! Great idea!!!!! I really the small pieces!!!!!

  9. I love seeing how you bring things together . . . the leftovers are little works of art all by themselves.

  10. Way too cool!!!! Love this piece!!!! I knew I saved my scraps for a reason! I just need more of them!!!

  11. This is wonderful! Can't wait to see what the finished project looks like!

  12. I love your use of scraps! After finishing a quilt, I hit the scraps, but don't have your talent! Beautiful work!!

  13. we won't talk about the snow storm that's going on right now in Montreal! The second one this week! your scrap projects look great. At least we can hibernate in the studio.
