First, my Swoon flying geese scraps. I collected these little triangular cut offs as I made my Swoon quilt and had decided to create a coordinating cushion. So, to get used to my featherweight I started chain stitching them together. After trimming them to 2.5 inch HSTs, I stitched this scrappy star together. It's quite large at 20 inches square, but I do really like it. I like that it will compliment the Swoon, but isn't a replicate block. Now to quilt her, make a back and finish her off!
The second project was a massive bag of selvages that was taking up space in my sewing cabinet. I have always liked the look of selvage projects, so I started collecting them. However, I had not worked with selvages before, so I didn't have a great idea of how many I'd need to collect to make a block or two. Well, my one zip lock bag made these pretty 10 inch square blocks. I have about 1/2 of a bag left plus I was lucky enough to inherit another bag from my friend Fiona, so I will easily have near enough to make a quilt top, using this and this as my inspiration. Making these blocks was so easy and immediately rewarding - a nice trip down memory lane revisiting my favorite prints. Happy days!
