Well, I was on a roll, tackling all those unfinished projects... I had the list down to just four remaining, when inspiration struck. Next thing, all my scraps were on the table! The trigger was this gorgeous looking quilt, and the fact that we were about to go to America on holiday, so it was wise to clear some space for the inevitable fabric purchases.
For my version, I decided to cut all my scraps to 5 inches long, but various widths ranging from 1.5 inches to around 3 inches. I did try out a layout with just the pink and grey scraps, but it was way too intense! So, everything went into the mix...
This is where I'm at so far. You can probably tell, in this picture the rows are sewn up, with each row around 40 inches wide. However, the rows are then just lightly pinned to the other rows for now. In fairness, it looked better outside (on the trampoline) in the bright sunshine than it did inside, but I just wasn't loving the effect.
So, this is a different take on the idea... What do you think? I have a yard of the neutral, white spot fabric, and could fit 3 inch strips in between the rows. Here's a close-up:
I'm pretty sure I know which one I prefer, but I'm keen to hear your thoughts!
