Taming the Scrap Beast

Still making progress here.  Most of the crumb blocks are still sort of unfinished and will be added to with this last pile of strips.

I'm definitely feeling better about starting this whole project.  Now, I'm thinking this may actually be doable.  I really want to put together at least one small top so that I can feel a sense of accomplishment.  To that end, I started sorting some of the blocks as you see here (light colors, blues & greens, reds and browns, mixed and the smallest pile so far- night at the improv).   These will probably go through more rearrangement as we go along, but it gives me something to go on for now.   

My book pile is now topped with Gwen Marston's Liberated Quiltmaking and Liberated String Quilts.  Both are so inspiring right now.  I can't wait to get far enough along here to try laying them out for a quilt.  I've got some more sewing to do before then though. 

As a bit of distraction, this is what it looked like here today.
