The reverse of said circle. The theme of this quilt has become using up what could be trash. This is the wrong side of the backing fabric. I put tucks in the blue square to make it smaller. I like that little point that is pointing to the center.
More "trash". The center is leftover from the border of Pointless Puddle. I manually cut the gear shape on the circle. I have scissors that cut decorative edges, but they don't work on fabric.
A Ringo Lake piece, with some extras from the drawer. The orange is probably from Lansing Leaves. These pieces looked like they were already planned to become circles, but I don't remember the planned layout.
More Pointless Puddle border. A two color background for a change of pace. That cream is from the tile quilt, and the brown is from Ringo Lake.
This one is a leftover from the binding of Adinkra. I included the selvage because I like the words "& pattern" and left the selvedge on the circle in case it wasn't rule breaking enough. I put a little bit of that background fabric in Ringo Lake. Just enough to add interest, since I don't want a lot of added busyness in that quilt.
I call this technique "scrunch as you go". I wasn't trying to make a leaf, but I guess that is what it wanted to be. The vein is leftover from straightening out the background fabric for block 206. This is an old fabric that I have used in older projects, so it tickles me to use in Ringo Lake.
15 Minutes to Stitch
Since it is Sunday, I need to check my sewing this week.
Days with stitching this week: 7 out of 7Days with stitching this month: 14 out of 14
Days with stitching this year: 14 out of 14
Success rate: 100%
I have to admit that I had to stretch the definition of "stitching" on at least one of the days. Ringo Lake has a lot of pressing, drawing diagonal lines, clipping dog ears, and cutting, so it hasn't always been stitching, but I am counting it anyway, since I made quilting progress every day, and since I am all about rule breaking!
Oh Scrap! - the first couple of circles have a greenish blue in them, and there is lots of blue throughout the quilt. And it is definitely made from scraps!
