Made Fabric

This is a detail of a “made fabric” improv block I hammered out last weekend.  This is about 10 inches of a bigger piece that so far is about 20″x20″.  I adore creating these! I don’t know what I’m making, how big it’ll get, what it will look like or what it’s for – I just take my latest pile of teeny tiny scraps and go into my sewing trance. In this case I’m using leftovers from the Tomato & Tangerine quilt and contrasting pillows in turquoise and greens. FUN!

“Made Fabric” – Scrappy Stars

IMG_1915

I LOVE sewing my tiny scraps (all sorted by color, of course!) and creating “made fabric”.  There is something so satisfying about making something out of what feels like nothing – especially when you take those teeny tiny pieces that you don’t want to throw away.  This small star block was a test for a much bigger wall hanging I made.  I went a little crazy on the quilting – but I just love looking at it! Above is the small trial run. Below is the bigger finished quilt. Love em both!
