I finished going through all of my small scraps (less than a fat 1/8 of a yard) and cut them all up into hexagons. It is kind of fun to see what fabric I use the most of. I have tons of red, pink, yellow, aqua, green and black/gray but I was surprised how little blue and orange I had.
I decided to try something different with this English piecing project. I am making overlapping large hexagons. The overlap will keep things interesting and will help to use up odd numbers of hexagons. I am really liking it so far. I don't know if there is such a thing as improvisational English paper piecing, but I think it will be a lot of fun to make up the design as I go along. I am aiming for a lap sized quilt.
I set aside all of the strips that were too small to cut hexagons out of. They range from 1-2.5" and are 4-42" long. They would be perfect for a string quilt, but I don't think I am going to get to that any time soon. So, if you would like them, leave a comment and I will send them to you. (First come, first serve.)
Linking up to Scraptastic Tuesday, Fabric Tuesday and WIP Wednesday.
