Description

I am not a huge fan of blue, but I have a lot of blue scraps from another project I'm working on that had to be blue.  So this is my "use up all the blue scraps so they aren't all over the place" project.  The pieces are teeny tiny (HSTs are 1.5 inches) compared to what I have worked with before, so there are a few small errors, but I am ok with it since this one doesn't have any ultimate purpose.  I'm calling it a learning experience! 

I don't really have a plan for where this is going, other than every time I get enough scraps, I add more.

This is pretty awesome... working with those tiny HSTs might have driven me crazy!

Caribousmom

Wow, this is really incredible! And I admire your tenacity in piecing all those tiny HSTs!!!!

Robynie

HST is short for half-square triangle. Crazy quilter jargon!

Aprilc

Oh my! This is gorgeous! Blue is my fave color, so I'm partial to anything using it:). This looks amazing. Clearly you have lots of patience and talent!

Mymble

I always love to see your projects because they are so original and make me see things a new (good:) way- and this is no exception- will look forward to the finished project!

Sewnsew

I love the zigzags!

Nonna_mahoo

That's really striking! Don't think I would have the patience to piece those teeny tiny HSTs!

Kristananne

Wow!! This is so so so cool.

True

Amazing quilt and the amount of work WOW!

Jess

How did I miss this before? I love it. It's a great scrappy project!

Gail

How fun! I love how it's turning out!

Janquilter

I somehow missed this until now...it is spectacular!

JudyBR

How do you do this? Just put together some randomness and it turns out amazing!

Jessicalam

Wow! This is AWESOME! I love how the randomness creates an awesome pattern. Great job! (But I am a bit partial to blue!) ;-)

Sewnsew

It is fabulous. You did a marvellous job. Love the yellow.

Sewzalot

That is amazing!! I wonder how many pieces of fabric is in your brain waves so far?

Sewnsew

I like projects that are pick up and put down. Yours is a great way to use scraps.

I need to get myslef a design wall too ... ok not for a couple of months ... but it looks so much easier to order scrap blocks (than have a pie and go through them, because you remember that there is that one block thath the scrap is just the right size for the missing part at the right .. )

Robynie

Strandkorbtraum I actually took down my design wall, because I used the batting for a quilt. In one of these pictures the pieces are on the floor, and in the other they are taped to the wall.... but I totally miss my design wall, I hope you can get one too!

Ahh it's more a thing of me beeing in an in between state. I will finish my BA in February and am going out of town (again) for a Master (hopefully) so I try not to accumulate too many things I will have to move eventually... and batting takes up a lot of space.

JudyBR

It's done! Now what are you going to do with your tiny scraps?

Robynie

JudyBR I'm not sure. I've been culling my scrap bin a bit and cutting some 2.5" squares when possible, but I don't have any plans for the really small pieces right now...

nachtpedalquilts

Wow, what a great, patient job ... it's gorgeous, this quilt ... I love all these little details ... What's its size? I'm really impressed ... ;)))

Robynie

nachtpedalquilts Thanks, it is 64" square
