Fabric Deprived? I Think Not!

 There's a quilt in that mess........... somewhere.
 I'm on a mission.  My mission is to create two quilts for our cabin, from scraps of fabric. It seems everyone who comes into my studio tells me I don't have much fabric. Well, I'm here to tell you........I have plenty of fabric, and I swear those fabric scraps reproduce while I'm sleeping.  I keep sewing strips together, glance over at the pile I started with, and I don't think it's getting any smaller!

My approach to this mission is to sew several different components, then attempt to assemble them into a visually desirable quilt.  I must admit, I'm more interested in the utilitarian aspect than the aesthetic aspect of the quilt.  We're talking remote Alaska cabin here. Warmth rules in this mission!

Large quilts are not what I enjoy doing, so we'll see if I really end up making two quilts.  Hmm.........I'm seeing some potential wall size quilts in that mess, how about you?
