What I'm working on

I've been working with pastels for my last few quilts.  I don't know why, maybe it's because it is so darn cold here I have been needing some sunshine, even if only in fabric.  While I was pulling fabric for the mystery quilt I showed you on the last post, I realised I had many, many scraps of pastels still left over.  

Let's face it, my scraps are hideously out of control.  I was all self righteous because they were sorted into colour and then scraps or pieces. But having looked at it all I realise I have Too Many Scraps.

So I pulled a few more the other day and started another darn quilt.

There are many many units there that I will be sewing into four patches to make another quilt on my bucket list - a triple irish chain.

I am trying hard to make all the units so I won't get horribly confused and lose count but I couldn't resist making at least a couple of big blocks to see how they look.  I hope it will turn out okay, each of those squares finishes at one inch so I may be ever so slightly mental.

I have family visiting today who are about to take my girls out for the morning so I'm going to be head down, bum up in the sewing room for a few hours fingers crossed.

See you on the other side.
