Isn't funny how our tastes change over the years?
As I was cleaning my Hidey Hole
I found this piece of fabric I had ordered at least five years ago
to use in a specific quilt.
I found the book, looked at the quilt and wondered what I was thinking!
I didn't hate the quilt, but I wasn't going to take the time to make it today.
So, instead I pulled out my box of Kaffe scraps and started playing around
with the beautiful fabric.
I tried one design and it didn't work.
Then I decided Half Square Triangles.
Lots of designs can be made with HST's.
This is what came out of the play time.
First of all, I can't believe I've made another scrap quilt!
Maybe the coronavirus has infected my quilting thoughts
and has turned me into a scrap quilter!?!
I really enjoy making HST's.
They are so versatile and so relaxing to make.
The thing that is so cool about this gray/brown fabric
is that it changes colors depending on the light,
the angle or how it's positioned. These two photos show how in some positions
it has a burgundy/maroon tint
and in others it has a teal tint.
Sometimes it looks more brown than gray.
At first I thought there was a front and back to the fabric,
but that isn't the case.
The dark background is not my usual choice,
but I'm very happy with these results
and am even happier to have another pile out of my cabinet.
My box of Kaffe scraps doesn't seem to be any less full, though.
Be well and be safe.
