In my sewing room there's lots of bags and boxes of stuff. So as not to be labeled a hoarder (and to clear a path) I decided I had better use some of the stuff in these bags and boxes.
This bag hold all of the long pastel strings cut from the sides of backings. I used the shorter pastel strings in a string quilt earlier in the year. These are the loooooooong strings.
I started sewing together strings and started cutting triangles for some 6 pointed string stars. I need 248 triangles for the quilt I have in mind. (The one like I made earlier in the year with bright long strings on navy, hand quilted and on my bed.) There may not be much variety when all is said and done but a quilt, especially a quilt with stars, is better than a big bag of trimmings (aka tripping hazard).
And won't those stars look just fine on this piece of floral I'm going to use for the background? Well, for now I think I'm going to use it for the background. A girl can sometimes change her mind.
Waste not, want not.
Making something from practically nothing.
Using every last piece is the part of quilting I find quite satisfying.
