More What If from a Special Scrap Block


What If I take the leftovers from the block I made from Allies class packs she was offering on her site, see this post from way back when and cut it into strips to make the crazy block outline? Couch it down with some saved up shoe laces and cording. (I knew I was saving that funny little sawed off block for something.)


The CQR collaborators are growing over at Judes What If blog and I'm learning lots from reading all the imaginative thought and what's fueling these concepts. Do see Judes side bar for links. Some great ideas to expound upon in future projects.

I really like this idea! Will you do traditional embroidery in the black areas?

Aha - crazy patch seams - clever! I was trying to think of a way to reverse the concept (fabric seams. embroidered patches) but i would never have thought of this. you are so clever (must be all the extra oxygen your brains getting now. lol)- this looks great. Im truly impressed.

How cool!
Love seeing those scraps in action in such a new way.

Nice tootsies, too.

Jane, your blog is fascinating and beautiful...I want to thank you for visiting my blog and for the award - I just hope I'll have a few minutes to do the necessary things to accept...

I have an Allie pack too that I have used in all sorts of blocks! That's a great idea for bordering the main block.
Have you noticed how lots of us Northern dwellers are starting to work with darker colours again as the season rolls on?

Way cool - great colors, Jane.

I've been to Jude's blog and am very tempted to see what kind of "what if-ing" I can do! Not that I need another project, however small/temporary ;- )

I like this idea. Love the notion of using the black shoelaces and the black accent sections. I too love to use black with vivid colors - it really makes them POP.

What part do the cute toesies play?
