One "Chunk" Joined

Sewing along on the strip sets Saturday morning, it occurred to me that I could do some cutting and adding to the sections to make them fit together easily.  Two of the sections were close in size along one edge.  Cut a strip off of the longer one and made them match.  Then I took three smaller sections and played "puzzle" with them until I had a piece that was the same length as the section I had joined. That new section was sewn on to make one good-sized chunk. 

The play of colors and visual textures from the batiks, hand-dyes, and prints - with a few solids added for a calming effect really make me love this.

I have loads of scraps left so I will start some new sections with the "seeds" that were left from "playing puzzle" (trimming to make it fit)  and other small sections I have sewn and not added yet.  This is a totally joyous process. 

*Scrappy Pro Tip: Always save trimmings that are at least an inch wide. Those are your scrappy seeds.

I just love sewing pieces like that together. I wonder why I do it so seldom. It is a joyous process.
