May for Me

I’m going to participate in the May for Me Celebration this year. Click the button on my sidebar to find out what it’s all about. And, to get started, here’s a post about some playing I’m doing this week.

Here’s a little peek at assorted bins of quilty “stuff” on a shelf in my closet. I know, not much compared to some I’ve seen, but I have very limited space to store all the projects, fabric, etc. that come with this obsession of mine. This is just one stash.

I’m trying to use this stuff up and move it out. So I chose a bin of 3.5” x 6.5” bricks that I cut up some time ago from some Connecting Threads scraps I had. But I didn’t have a plan for these.

I pulled these out and starting putting them together in a brick pattern keeping the colors the same diagonally, if not the actual fabric pattern. I think I like it. I was going to try to make all the diagonal rows match in fabric, but I’m playing fast and loose on this one.

My goal is to get all these bricks into a top by the end of May. Then I can free up this bin for one of the many other UFOs stashed around here out of sight and out of mind.

This top is destined for a Donation quilt.
