Scrappy Challenge

After reading this magazine I set myself a challenge:


(Yes that is the Tumbler quilt underneath but it’s not quite finished yet so let’s move on.)

I have a bag overflowing with scrap fabrics. Some from my own projects and others from bags sold as a pick & mix, (I can’t resist a bag of scraps). I do dip into it occasionally but like the idea of sorting them out into more useable shapes before it starts taking over the house.

So my Accuquilt came out and I spent half an hour last night playing with the hexagon die:


I also cut some 5″ squares and am going to do some triangles as well.

I can see a scrappy hexagonal quilt with some ‘white on white’ in the future but I need to spend sometime cutting them out first.

Does anyone else care to join me?

Please leave a comment so I know that you’re interested and I can have a look at your newly invigorated stash…
