Sewing up a few squares today was unusually slow-going - my mind kept wandering and I was worried I'd mess it up if I ploughed on regardless. And so, Son Of Scrap Quilt or, Scrap Quilt II - The Return: This Time It's Personal I'm Even Less Likely To Finish It was born from the teeny tiny scraps (inch square or less) left over from sewing the quilt squares.

No regard to aesthetics. No planning. No real goal in sight. Just dig a hand blindly into the teeny scrap bag, sew, press, repeat. Remarkably theraputic.

Love your progress, and I love your quilt "offspring"  And you are hilarious, too, LOL.  I have some units like that sewn together of really tiny scraps.  When I decide that one unit is "done" I kind of trim it and then put it away - my theory is that someday I will have enough unita to put together into a quilt.  So if you don't finish it for twenty years, so what?Huh  It's because as quilters we can throw away anything that's like bigger than a finger nail, thinking "I could USE that!!"

If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

Hey - I just saw this quilt on someone else's blog and it made me think of you - isn't it incredible.

It won first prize in whichever quilt show it was entered in.  Pretty impressive!

I love it!

The circles and the wave motifs are a really nice touch. It looks huge - I dread to think how long that took.

If I had made that I would sell everything I owned and go AWOL, only to be found ten years later naked and grubby under a bridge stroking my quilt and quietly intoning "pretty....so pretty....I loves you little squares...oh yes I does....I loves it....hnnnnrgh....h nngnrgh"

Or I might just be extremely proud. It's a tossup.

I saw that "Little Cities" quilt in person at the Chicago International Quilt Festival.  It was really impressive.  Here's a detail:

I have so many scraps to use up.  I should maybe do something like you are, except that I don't do so well with free form patterns.  Undecided

Thanks for updating us!  I like to see your progress!

Bit more progress....



As time goes on my colour choices are getting more and more hideous offensive cavalier....



And as the main quilt grows, its illegitimate son, Scrapules, grows too...



The chaos that is my carpet....
