I attempted to lay the slab blocks out in an approximation of the future setting, but the design wall is not big enough and I don't have enough blocks done to be effective, but you sort of get the idea............
Are you as tired of seeing this scrap bin as I am? I have decided that once I finish the block at the end of this post I am just going to get sewing on this, if I need more strips as I go along, I will cut them then. I am so bored with cutting strips I just am not making any progress.
I thought I might show you that not even the tiniest bits get thrown out. I have a friend who digs through them for applique bits and the rest she uses to stuff dog beds she makes for the SPCA. I throw out very little in my sewing room.
I stashed these bits away as the beginnings of two more tinker totes
Here is block one of the Arcadia Avenue BOM. It is time consuming, 4 hours so far, but I LOVE it, and renewing my love for foundation paper piecing. Only four more sections to go through blue into green and then the triangles to square it up.
I am hoping for lots of sewing time over my next two days off work and
I continue to knit socks and piece Millefiore hexies in the evenings but will spare you more pics until I actually finish them!!
