A few weeks ago I had such creative block I could not sew a thing. A friend suggested I grab some scraps and sew. This is the result. The front is all the scraps that I sewed a few weeks ago tied in by rick rack. This top has Halloween, Christmas, cars, flames ... It is truly an uncontrolled scrappy top. The back I used my baby go to fuse on some flowers. I really like the idea of using a two sided runner. In the end this runner dissolved my creative block :)
My only dilemma is what to do next??????
I am in love with the disappearing nine patch pattern. Every quilt looks a little different depending on how you lay things out. I made this top to keep in case... Well in case came this past week. The assistant director at work is due on July 17th with a baby girl. She is the type that does everything she can to help out the teachers even when the director and owner don't want to hear it. I just felt her baby needed a quilt. This circumstance taught me to try to always have some tops ready to go.
Thankfully, I bought a baby go last week. I plan to make a bunch of tops from my scrap bin and keep them handy. I'd also like to donate a few more to linus. This little machine is truly a godsend I can cut binding in 3 minutes ... before 3 hours if I was lucky.
