Oh Say Can You See...

 ....That I started a new quilt.  Well technically it can be called working on a UFO, because the nine patches were made over a year ago... I think.  This all started while moving things around in the studio.  You know a little spring cleaning.  It quickly became the purging of EVERYTHING.  2 garbage bags full of decor fabric, 1 medium size box things I don't need or use, and a bolt of decor fabric and a lot of dust bunnies
 GONE, DONATED, OUT OF MY SPACE...WHOOHOO! 


There's still some math to work out and some serious brainstorming that needs to be done on pieced border.  You see EQ7 doesn't tell you the easiest way to piece things, actually it goes about things the hard way most of the time.  


Once I get all the details worked out I share more of this pattern, but for now here's a cute little pile of scraps.  So pretty...I tell my hubby all the time that we have the prettiest trash in Podunk!

  1. You have the prettiest trash because you have the prettiest stash. I had started to type a comment on your tulip post this morning but life called me away. Your tulip quilt is beautiful. Having the prettiest stash and knowing how to use it to perfection with your wonderful ideas on dedign = beautiful qiilts.

  5. I tell my hubby he is not allowed to empty the wastebaskets in my sewing room, because I like looking at all the trimmings jumbled up. Scraps are so pretty!!

  8. Congrats on that cleaning toss. I must do the same too. You do have pretty trash. I think it's because you have such pretty fabric. Looking forward to the reveal also. Can't have enough patriotic quilts. Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone!

  10. looks like another great quilt coming to life here and a good clear out as well. Been thinking of EQ7 for ages but from what you say I might struggle if it is not good at all parts of a quilt

  11. Looks kind of like Goose in the Pond block and then some. Prettiest trash and no dust bunnies? Lucky you! Even my sewing machine seems to have dust bunnies. I use my scraps as mulch so I guess I might have the prettiest mulch because I have a lot of the same fabrics you do!

  14. Looks great so far - I completely agree with you on EQ7 picking the hardest way to piece a block!

  15. Congratulations on your purge! I have a bunch of fabric that I should probably purge myself, but I think of all the money spent and I just can't do it! Your quilt looks like it is going to be fabulous!
