At the beginning of the year I was already two months into the Quilty 365 project and, full of post Christmas enthusiasm decided I would also join in with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Only one problem with that: turns out I have hardly any scraps. I thought there was a lot sitting around, but I use my leftover fabrics on my quilt backs so my scrap box contains mostly teeny tiny little snippets, quite a lot of which is only good for the compost/mulching the garden. Oh well, I thought to myself, when for the second month in a row I couldn't even find enough of a colour to make some tiny 9 patch blocks, this clearly isn't meant to be.
At the same time I have to admit that much as I like my circles, I don't want to make any more, at least not of this particular version. So maybe I can combine what I have from the two projects?
I have started playing around with the strip sets I had cut from old shirts, using them as fillers.
I'm also playing around with the idea of having some 'blocks' that are not denim: I'm not sure if the strips are quite what I want, so I'll keep playing with that. Maybe more little squares (though I think I would make plain ones, not use the one that I've put down here). I did tiny 9 patches for the days that I was ill in February, (bottom left of the photo) so maybe that's the way to go.
Actually I realise I may well end up making more of the blue on denim circles to get where I want with this, and that's fine; it gives me time to think about what else I might want to do.
In the meantime I'm linking up for the first time with Oh Scrap at Quilting is More Fun than Housework.
