I saw something on Pinterest the other day. It caught my attention, as squirrel projects do, and I had to drop everything and pursue it.
It was made with selvages. I don't collect selvages, but I have some 1-1/2" strips and I can easily cut more.
I sewed strips into pairs, then cut them into 4-1/2" lengths, and sewed two pairs together for a block. Here are the starter blocks on my design wall.
Meh, it's okay, kind of juvenile.
What if I limit the palette to just warm colors?
Much better. I really like where this is going.
The original inspiration photo was nothing like this, but that doesn't matter anymore. This project has grabbed my attention in a way that nothing has lately and it feels good to focus on something. I cut more warm-colored strips and I'm making more blocks, so we'll see where this goes.
