Showing The Pieces

The last post had no photos of the pieces I have been sewing in odd moments.  Some of you may be thinking that I have "fallen in a hole." But, you can relax!  It isn't true.  I have become less "productive."  Rather I am going slower and enjoying the process more. I have no deadlines and don't wish to set any for myself. 

The scrap pile doesn't seem to be dwindling at all.  Even though all of the pieces here are scraps from various other projects. If the piece is at least 2 1/2" square, I am compelled to save it.  I have bins, boxes and bags of scraps. Here are the results of using a very small portion of those scraps. 

The above is all sewn into one bigger piece. 

While the one below is several pieced sections laid out into one piece.
They are not all joined. 

I think there are twelve sections there.  This is not how it will look
when it is joined.  I am sure more pieces will be added. 

Meanwhile, back at Mom's the puzzle is still "in progress." 
There has been some serious advances in the piecing of it also. 

The part I am least looking forward to working on? 
The red/pink/orange leaves in the tree on the left. 
Of course, it may be like the bridge.  Once we buckle 
down on that section, it may fall into place fairly easily. 

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

Oooh - I LOVE the piecing - and the puzzle - ;))

This has a decidedly traditional look, like our ancestors often made when they used every available bit of cloth to make a quilt for warmth. I love it!

I had to chuckle when I read that your scrap pile doesn't seem to be going down! Don't you know that scraps are like rabbits? they multiply when you're not looking! :-)
It'll be fun to see what your pieces end up as!

Yeah, I've been thinking about getting going on some scrap quilts soon too. It's going to be an overwhelming task I think! Your scrap blocks look great.

Those scraps are playing very nicely together and turning into something pretty. You and your Mom have made great progress on the puzzle.

Oh yes!
