Inner Dialogue

I have been working on my Scrap Vomit quilt here and there
as bits of free time pop up.


The cutting is addicting!
I find myself saying "oh I'll just cut a few more...and a few more...." 
I have strictly stuck with scraps from projects that have already been made.
It's been a little tough to stay away from my yardage!

I didn't realize just how much all of these little pieces would mean to me.
I have racing thoughts the entire time....

"oh, that's from the boys bed quilts"
"this one is from Sasha's baby bedding"
"wow, I used some of this in my grandmother's quilt 
when my grandfather died."
"and this one is from Cait's quilt when I was 
giving her sewing lessons"

A lot of these fabrics are from the last few years.
I think I might go down to the storage room and 
try to find some older goods!

I sized my squares down to 2" rather than 2.5"
These squares finish at a whopping 1.5"!!!
I have been using Oh Fransson's Stamp Collection technique.
It's pretty fabulous!


You can learn all about that here!

Just look at these beautiful intersections!



There is no way that I could have achieved such perfect lines with such 
tiny squares without this method.
No way!  None!

  1. I can't even begin to imagine piecing those tiny things! But you are going to have such a fun quilt when you are done. And so cool to be able to look back and play "I-spy" with all your past projects!

    Weird question... Do you happen to know what line of fabric that purple flowery print is from. Top right square of the center 4 in the last picture. I have a tiny tiny scrap of it in red and its one of my favourite prints ever!
