I needed a black background for a little quilt and being smack down in the middle of a scrappy love fest I wanted to piece one. I had a few black scraps in the box in which I never seem to make a dent even with the Intuition Quilt in progress. I wish my bank account worked the same way.
Instead of just piecing the scraps together I thought of Victoria’s inspirational post and decided to take a little road trip piecing wise. You’ll find pictures on how I got from this to this and with this in between on my post at 15 Minutes Play.
I’ve got to admit it took me a while to get there. I lost track at some point(s) and had no idea where I came from or where I was headed, but in the end all the pieces were attached to each other in a semi orderly way and the made fabric was big enough. It was a fun exercise and the background is much more interesting than just a few rectangles or strips pieced together.
Thank you for the inspiration, Victoria!
