Yummy colors for a surprise

I wish, wish, wish I could show you what I'm doing with this Grunge fabric from Moda, but I'm working on holiday surprises so I can't. But the colors are too luscious not to put on the blog.

I found them in Gig Harbor's new quilt shop, Quilt Revolution. These bolts are about half the colors at the shop.

When I got home, I cut them free hand into strips and added a few others from my stash.

As I sewed my free-form surprises, the scraps got smaller and smaller until I had to start throwing the smallest away:

I may end up saving them from the wastebasket and turning them into yet another project!

Have a colorful day

Scarves! Don't those tiniest bits and bobs go into your airy scarves?

These are great colors - very soothing yet but not dull. Piece away!

Can't wait to see what you're working on! And definitely hold onto those scraps... you never know what will be your next inspiration! I have dedicated a plastic shoe box for my scraps, knowing that something will come up that will let me use them up, thanks to you and your scarf tutorial! Have fun...

Well, it is not really fair to show us a teaser like that. Now we have to wait. I am getting too old to wait for very long.
