Design Wall Monday

The scrap Vortex is still in production here in my sewing room. I have almost finished 5 rows of varying sized blocks. The rows all measure the width of my design wall, which is 49".

I'm not tired of the process of improv piecing yet, so I'm thinking of making another 2 or 3 rows to make it a bit bigger. However, I am eager to start another project this week, so I better get over to the sewing machine and get to "work"!

  2. Lots and Lots of scraps on your wall. I'm drowning in scraps calling my name. I just need a week or two at home without distractions so I can get them sliced and diced into my scrap users system. I did read Diane's post and have to comment. It was so nice that she could find the owner and return her baby quilt. I wonder about my treasured quilts and what will happen to them when I am gone. I dread the thought that they'll be sold at a yard sale for $5

  4. I've kind of started Scrap Vortex but I'm not very far along. I'm trying to build blocks around leftover pieced blocks. I plan to cut the larger blocks apart to make them smaller. This is definitely something I don't normally piece so it is real challenge for me. I'm piecing them as leader and enders between another project.

  10. Great to have the day off and do some sewing. Very colourful, Very scrappy. Very improvisational. Scrap Vortex is such a good name for this style - it just draws you in and swirls you around all the colour.

    I've all but lost my New Hexagon Millefiori obsession and am gathering my scraps to go Vortex lol
    And fussy cutting does give you lots ( more) scraps to play with !
