Scraptastic Project

Since November, I have been working on a project with my scraps. Now, if you sew, you create scraps. If you're a quilter, those scraps are elements of your work. So, I had boxes and bags scattered around my sewing room with project leftovers. Something like the first picture. My brilliant idea was to sort the pieces by color family and sew them together at random into large pieces.

This past weekend, I started cutting the pieces into diamond shapes.

I have several ideas of where I can take the project from here, but the fact of the matter is, that I'm not really certain where I'm going. This has been such a fun project.
