I have been satisfying my need for mindless sewing and scrap eradication this week. I have had this police & fireman fabric since I won it free last year. It is a good feeling to use it up (make way on my shelves for something lovely & tasteful). Critique aside, some little boy will love it. It still needs another outer border and finishing, but I am building my stash of flimsies that I will finish over the long winter (and I do mean long!).
These scrappy blocks were actually fun to make. They came purely from my scrap blue bag, except for the snippet of Kaffe Fasset yellow in them. I gotta admit, I HATE blue and orange together, but those blocks were just calling for that bold orange bordering. You see...I did my undergraduate work at University of Alabama, and one of our staunch rivals was Auburn - blue & orange ! For decades I have hated the two colors together.
