WIP Wednesday - Klenck Junk

I love living in my comfort zone -- doing things I know and am comfortable with.  But I do know it's important to get outside of that box in order to grow and learn new things.  My quilting friends have been known to coax me out of the box, but generally with me kicking and screaming.  In an attempt to continue trying new things, I decided that this year was all about Yes.  If an opportunity presented itself, I would say Yes (where possible).

Here is one Yes that I was a bit excited about.  Val @ Purple Boots and Pigtails asked for volunteers to participate with a project.  Her One Mans Junk seemed like a great way to get outside of the box.  So I put my hand up and volunteered.  And then she said participants could only use the fabric that was in the scrap bag.  Ummm...what???  Excitement gone.

Here's what Val created.  It's been a challenge trying to figure out what to add using only the scraps in the bag.


Then I had an idea.  Excitement returned!  Here's a tiny glimpse of what I'll be adding to the project.


As I was about to start adding my sections, I had another idea.  So now I'm off to figure out how to incorporate this new idea.  Stay tuned for an update.

  6. Oh, this will be fun! I love that flower print--straight out of the 70's, but perfect for today, too. I can see what a challenge it is to add using only the scrap bag, but look at it this way: you're the first one to add to the quilt, so you have lots more choice than whoever gets to be last!
