Black and Grey Scrappy Saturday
Today over at Soscrappy is another Scrappy Saturday and this months colours are Black and Grey. I did not think I had so many scraps in this colour but I do have lots. I have a basket full of just Black and White yardage but have worked to keep the scraps down ( I thought). I look in another box or bin. I find more. I have allowed a bit of colour or a bit of white in so it is not to flat or boring. This first block has colour and some white and very little grey.
This block has very little colour but lots more darker grey.
I like that they are different but the same.
These are the spools I did this week as Leaders and Enders, from Bonnie Hunter's challenge. I dyed a black with white dot fabric and made the blue dot fabric some time back. I like it.
I am looking forward to getting back to more colour again. Next month we are to work on putting together some of our rainbow quilts from the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2012. I am already looking for ideas for next year. I have ideas for two blocks I might do already. I can also get back to my farmer's wife blocks too.
I need help with ideas here. I have a set of four old chairs that were my Grandmothers. I need to leave the brown wood finish (long story). But the seats need work. I once thought I would rug hook seat cover but my wrist does not like hooking. Now I think I should do some patchwork, but what. My room gets lots of light and fading can be a problem. They are not square so just square or triangle may not look good. Help!
