I have a confession to make. I am a terrible procrastinator .Today I should have been cross stitching but something else was calling me. I opened the bag of scraps I bought from the shop Cardygirl took us to. Cardy's bright octagon quilt and other works she has in progress as well as a post by Kevin the Quilter inspired me to give it a go.
I bought these to experiment with this book I bought from Material Obsession recently.
This is far outside of my comfort zone. So much so that I had to buy a bag of scraps so I would have something to experiment with!! So, here is my first piece of 'made fabric'.
I made a few more pieces of fabric and then put them together to make a block. I can see now that I have too much yellow gingham in this one. I was happy with the first piece of fabric I made, but not so sure about the block I have created. But I'm keen to experiment and it was fun 'making' fabric to create something that you can't buy in a store.
