Quite some time ago we ran a series of Scrappy Sunday posts which stirred a lot of interest, and one of the recurring themes we discussed at HQ was how challenging it was for so many of us to work in a truly scrappy or random style. Barbara was reminded of these conversations when she decided to use up some hexagons left over from another project. The aim of using up the hexagons was to make a piece of fabric that could then be used to make a bag or some such useful object. This was as random an arrangement as could be managed! –
Hexagons still have a somewhat retro feel for us – they remind us very much of our start in patchwork back in the dim and distant past. How much has changed since we began!!

I find it impossible to make scrappy (using scraps I have on hand) quilts. I “see” quilts in my head and I plan everything including backing and binding. The only scrappy quilts I like are usually limited to one or two colors and mostly background and coordinate fabrics. Just can’t do it.
