Making A Big Mess…

So this happened. For some, this might be a nightmare but for me it’s going to drive some much needed sorting and organization that has been nagging at me for a while.  In an effort to get to the bottom of my scrap bin for some long lost fabrics, I ended up with a mountain of fabric in my sewing room.

But first, the reason for needing scraps was so I could sew this pile of Square In A Square blocks for the Gypsy Wife quilt. As part of the Quilt Along, we had to make 35 Square In A Square blocks in one week. Of course I wanted great variety in my fabrics so I dug to the bottom of the scrap bin.

The Gypsy Wife pattern calls for 4 different sizes of Square In A Square blocks. I was really dreading this week in the schedule because so many blocks were required so I am happy to have this behind me. About a dozen blocks remain in the schedule and then it will be time to put sections together. More apprehension!

I have time off from my real job next week so I plan to tackle this pile of scraps and get it organized. Katrina can stop looking at me with her judgey look.
