This is because I save practically every scrap - even those fabric "crumbs" - when I probably have no good reason to do so. Until now that is! I've already started combing Pinterest and Flickr for inspiration on block designs and color palettes...it's all just too much to narrow down yet but at least I have until May to finally get things figured out.
But I really need to focus on less new fabric and working from my extensive stash. I haven't even considered trying to total up yardage or different prints. I think I would scare myself. And speaking of scraps, how extensively do you guys hoard those scraps and crumbs? And what about orphaned blocks? While I was combing through my scraps, I separated out all the orphaned blocks from random quilts, minis and various guild projects. I can't bring myself to just toss them, but I'm not sure what I'll use them for.
Correction - I did use some of my leftover Posy HSTs to create this block for a surprise mystery project. Guess there's a good reason to keep them after all! Yay for fabric justification!
In the meantime, check out the other members of ScrapBeeLicious - it's going to be an amazing 13 months of blocks!
