    Love the 'pieces' you're working on!

    Teddy has just gathered up the scraps I just pulled out...he is hopeless. He sees me working on it, he doesn't care one bit...he claims all scraps if they are on the floor.

    Yeh, I noticed that abstract look and I think it's because of the black and I love it. I will make this as big as 60x60 more or less.

    I need to make a long one at 20 inches wide and one long one accross the bottom about the same more or less.

    Shape also inspires me. Let's see what the long 20 by by 40 piece will bring.

    Oooooh! I am loving watching this all come together. :D One of these days I'm going to do this too.
    It's brilliant seeing all the suprises - like the house & ladder. Looking forward to seeing how it ends up. :D:D

    Ok, that mess of S&C in the first post is gone and I had to empty another bag but these are larger piece, thank God! lol.

    I am working on a long part going down both sides of the other four pieces and have more that half done last night. Notice my little doggies with the kerchef?

    Then I just took a ladder and placed it in the bottom space and will work from there.

    I will probably switch the pieces around once I get them done.

    How about turning the blocks so your "streets" meander through the quilt--triangle topped squares could look like houses dotted here and there next to the streets. Maybe that would take away from your mindless activity though.

    LOL should have looked at all the posts!! Love your pics, thanks.

    I had lots of leftover pieces of pinks and greens and a rose print. Made all the small rail fence blocks I could, starting with dark greens and darker pinks and the rose print. As I ran out of those I used the next lighter color and continued. When I put it together I put all the darks in one corner and then gradually added the lighter ones and then the lightest ones. When I got it all together I thought it was too long and narrow so I added an appliqued border up one side and then put a dark green border all around. My very favorite quilt to date!

    These are not finished by any means. I don't want a block to block look. I want it to flow together as a whole, so I have to do a connection somewhere.

    I put the three together and I can see where there is an outside strip, it gives the block appearance. I turned the top two with no strips on that side and I can see what I like. I love the black intersperced here and there.

    I now think I should put some cats and dogs and houses in. I got some neat blocks out of "Sew Precise".

    The two blocks on the top, show the striped pieces of the long string that I did. I filled in the curve at the dip and left the round part alone and then I cut the whole strip straight. I just add and square up as I go but love the crooked things inside.

    I will update as I make more mindless.
    And I throw those pieces away..........

    Why waste a good scrap when it can be used like this and have a wonderful quilt in the end! I love this! But...I get so bored and have little patience with small pieces. You are an inspiration. Will cont. to watch this grow. Thank You for sharing.

    Yes, good idea, if it can be managed to a degree, since I didn't plan ahead lol.....

    This has become my FAVORITE way of quilting. I just get all of the scraps, all of my left over strips and quilts are born! THEY decide how they will look and they are always beautiful! It does take a very long time to complete them as I start with the teeniest scraps but I LOVE them. Since it is an immense, time consuming but every minute loving experience, I am doing this one for ME!!!!! OMG!!!!! For ME!!! What a novel idea. Someone has to be a quilter to appreciate the time and love that goes into a scrap quilt. Sigh...................just thinking about it makes me feel calm and safe. Good luck with yours and maybe I will finally learn how to post a picture or two!
