My scraps have been getting out of control, and for a while now I've been meaning to do something to consciously use them up, but bar grabbing a bit out here and there for other projects, they've just sat. And multiplied.So when I saw Stitched in Color (I feel like I need to physically restrain myself from inserting the missing *u*, ha!) is hosting a Scrap Attack Quiltalong, it seemed not only sensible but completely imperative for me to sign up! Now, I just need to come up with a quilt idea to whittle away at this mighty pile...any thoughts?
Funny story - I was halfway through writing this post and suddenly needed to lay my hands on a particular box of trim for reasons unknown but mostly because I simply couldn't remember having seen it the past few months (does anyone else do this? Get a wild hair - and completely distracted - midtask? I have a sneaking suspicion it's always been a trait, but I swear motherhood has exacerbated it beyond the...oooh look, shiny things!!!) Anyway....(what was I saying about getting distracted?) in my hunt for the trims, I found the rest of my scraps - a box about half the size of the big one in the pic above. Hoo boy, Scrap Attack couldn't have come at a better time!
