A Catch-Up Post

So way back at the end of November I splurged and used some inheritance money to go south for a workshop with Victoria Findlay Wolfe. Hosted by the fabulous modern quilt guild of Bainbridge Island I had a great time. For the workshop I had had an idea to reduce the amount of blue fabrics I have.

I used to have four clear plastic shoe boxes of fabrics (all the small bits, <.5m) for all my colours. Yes, all my bits of fabric fit in four boxes. (There are two medium rubbermaids of yardage/big pieces in the garage).  And then I added a clear plastic boot box (just slightly bigger than the shoe box) for the solids. And same again for blacks/whites/greys. And scraps too. But all the colours were still in those four bins.

  1. Purple/green/brown.
  2. Yellow/Orange/Pink/Red.
  3. Low volume/mulitcoloured prints.
  4. Blue.

I had too many blues.

So I decided to use only blue fabrics for my 15 minute improv workshop. I have a pattern in mind to use these for, so there is a destination in mind.


As of today, I have 68 of 88 blocks done. And the blues still overflow one damn bin.

I’m linking up for the first time with She Can Quilt and Mrs Sew and Sow for their Scraptastic Tuesday!Scraptastic_Tuesday


I’ve also linked up for the very first time with the all-Canadian Wednesday Needle and Thread Network!W_I_P__Wednesday___________Link-up___@_The_Needle_&____Thread_Network.png
