One Thing Leads to Another...
Our quilt group had a sew day last winter to make sock quilts. Everyone brought fabric to share, and we made a zillion socks- raw edge applique. We took our socks home to finish the top with our choice of arrangement and borders. I'm sorry, I can't remember who designed this pattern.
The sew day was at my house- that meant itty bitty scraps wound up in my trash. But not for long! I pulled them out, and made a bunch of scrappy abstracts, cut to 3.5 inch finished blocks.
I hung onto the blocks for a while, before deciding what to do with them.
Maybe with yellow to brighten them up?
Or with black for drama?
No, white won't work.
I'm liking this mustard yellow.
Or maybe tomato red...
I decided on little black frames for the "abstracts" along with the red. (Not as orange as this photo...)
I think I may hand quilt this- one more added to my tops-in-need-of-quilting collection!
