Have you heard of Aneela Hoey? If you don't know her name you may know her range of fabric - Sherbet Pips? Well I have been following her blog Comfortstitching for a little while now. I love her approach to design and the way in which her colours just flow. She is very inspired by her children and they feature as a large part of her work.
My Scrap bucket looks like this:
It is full to the brim! Although they are "scraps" there are lots of pieces of fabrics I love and usually the last little piece of my favourites are hiding in here. I use these alot in my works but at the moment the pile is a little larger than I like it to be.
When I was reading Comfortstitching through the week Aneela posted a Tutorial on a Scrappy Block Quilt A Long , I was sold. She talks about how addictive these little squares are to make and I definitely agree - here's one I made yesterday.
Since making this one I have made another 5 - I will show you a photo next time of my growing pile of Scrappy squares. I am not sure how big I will make it at this stage - but I think I might just keep adding to it to be more of a picnic rug size. I have gone with bright colours - green, yellow, pink, teal, purple and orange.
