Ever spend 15 minutes to work on a new idea (or an old idea), try a new technique, or just mess around with your fabrics or scraps? I set aside 15 minutes a few weeks ago, and ended up with the start of some cute pinwheels from a pile of scrap squares (still in progress).
Lately, I wanted to use an old orphan quilt block to make a travel size pin cushion. I also wanted to try making a mosaic-looking pin cushion (inspired by this one) using extra-small scraps. It was like making a tiny version of a ticker-tape quilt.
It was quite fun to spend 15 minutes playing with these scraps, and especially freeing since these were sort “improv” for me.
