I have jumped in to participate in the Bottled Rainbow Quiltalong at Stitched in Color (you can click the link in my sidebar to see how to join in). I bought these pretty fat quarters before Christmas when they were on sale from Connected Threads. Luckily, the fat quarter bundle had all the colors I needed except for two and I managed to find them in my stash. Here they are all laid out on my living room floor.
Then I started sorting my scraps onto the matching colors. Lots of my scraps did not have one dominant color, so I set those aside. I found out that although I have lots of scraps, I do not really have these exact colors. Some of the colors I did really well on (bright green, dark green, blue, and the bright pink-no surprise, really) but some of the colors I didn’t have much at all. I decided to include fat quarters and that helped.
Then I dug into a few of my charm squares packs and I was a little happier (okay, I know that those are technically not scraps but it is better than going out and buying more fabric, right?). I am sure if I go upstairs and check, I can add some more yardage to the piles but that can wait. I signed up for the scrap swap at Sew Sara so I am hoping I will get a few more scraps in the colors I need.
I seem to be low on the petal pink, cerise, indigo, and tangerine. I will have to be on the lookout!
Meanwhile, I guess I need to pick up the living room!
