15 Minutes of Play QUILT
15 Minutes of Play Scrap Quilt
So I told you about the 15 Minutes of Play book, right? I LOVE the quilt that came from “yeah, just sew your scraps together however you want.” It is such a liberating process.
I opted to sew all my scraps together in color families. I made the finished “Made-Fabric” pieces any size. Really, whatever size turned out is what size it is. So, here’s how the pieces fell together.
Now I just need to plan an arrangement.
Here’s something funny: In the book Victoria Findlay-Wolfe talks about what you’ll see from the accidental pairing of unlikely fabrics and what shapes will evolve through the improv process and all… And what you learn about yourself – what you like and don’t like…
Um. Yeah. I like rectangles and 90 degree angles. Not too terribly surprised, but it is pretty funny. All kinds of improv and wild, as long as it can be 90 degrees for the most part. =)
Honestly the neutral/off whites did kind of throw me a bit. I just added them in the corner over here:
I was floored that most of the pieces seemed to match up with one another give or take an inch or so.
Chaos Theory, right!
Happy to report that this is the layout that stuck.
Of course, it is now it is my new favorite thing.
It super super needs to hang out with the iron for a bit. I’ll be doing that on quilting day, though. There are a couple areas that I do think will have a “That will quilt out” moment, but over all, pretty square and uber scrappy!!
