Punishment sewing is over because a plan has emerged! I found some more green fabric to add to what I already had, but I felt the need to organize a bit before I proceeded.
I cut all my strip sets into 12″ lengths. Surprisingly, I really didn’t have much in the way of odds and ends, so it was a lucky guess on that length. Then I cut the extra green fabric to the same length and it seemed much less tedious sewing those strips on.
Put a few of the sets together because I thought I might make squares and then recut and resew to mix things up and make a cool design. Then I came to my senses! Why would I do all that extra work for stuff I’m trying to use up quickly so I can go back to my fun fabrics?
Now the plan is to make a strippy quilt with 12″ widths and call it good. If I don’t keep it simple, I won’t follow through and USE those scraps.
And I have plenty of other fabric to use for the sashing between the strippy bits. So, the “what if” is solved, the plan is in place and fresher, newer, cooler fabric will be coming up soon!
