Quilted thoughts

There's something about sewing together scraps of uncoordinated fabrics that excites me. I have two laundry hampers full of assorted scraps in my sewing room. I like to pull up a few handfuls and go to town on my sewing machine. I'm making that crazy-style quilt pictured here, the one with alternating blue squares. I've gotten all the squares together. That was a challenge for me--sewing them on the diagonal. I've decided to make more crazy-style strips for the border. I join some, and cut the resulting patches with my six-inch ruler. This type of sewing makes me feel so happy.
