Remember what I said about relocating and how I am struggling to pack my stuffs? I decided I could squeeze out time to make some blocks or minis out of my huge scrap stash (should be easier to handle that way). Yesterday, I rummaged through my scrap basket/box and pulled out some coordinating fabrics and I plan to make as many things as I can until I exhaust them. Anyway, after my previous failed attempt at slashing and stitching, I wanted to give it another try with a mini in mind. I started out with 15″ square in some left over gray fabric because I tried black the last time.
Current Work in Progress
This is what I have so far but the idea was to either slash it in the other diagonal or slash vertically, I am however afraid I might damage it and end up with something like before.
The question now is should I just stop with what I have or should I take the risk and slash further and if yes, in what direction? A part of me is telling me my accuracy has improved since this last piece and I want to find out which way this would end up if I take the risk. On the hand is the thought that I won’t be happy if I take the risk and end up ruining this piece especially when as I type this post I am getting another idea of including borders to the original piece to see where that goes. Oh I also feel like my solid strips if I go ahead should be thinner say about 1-1.5″. So what do you reckon, to stop or to continue?
I’ll confess I’ve been doing less packing and more sewing but I do have to get back to packing so I’ll let this “percolate” (…I really like this word, thanks Amanda) while I wait for your suggestions and the next available sewing slot…sometimes today or tomorrow 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to reading your suggestions, in the mean time it’s time to clean out my closet and I truly hope that’s what I will be doing for the next few hours…No digressions allowed unless a sewing break becomes necessary in between!
