A few weeks back I was on the board looking at crumb quilts and thinking I would never have the patience to use those little pieces, guess what happened?? I bought a book called "Start With Scraps" by Carol E. Loessel from Clotilde and have not been able to control myself. at first I used the bigger pieces, sewing them together and then cutting the strips and adding them to somthing else, eventually ending up with some interesting angles and small pieces in the mix. I really loved the results. Now this has become an obsession. I have made "fabric" with christmas prints and have separated my scraps into clear boxes with kitchen scraps, baby, christmas and a misc. box. I can't seem to stop. I have lots of other things to do, but this is so satisfying that I am ignoring everything else. So far I have only made the fabric, need to get some square rulers to cut the stuff up and make somthing else out of it. Any ideas on the Christmas fabric, like a tree skirt?
