Something From Nothing (Part 1)

I am participating in my first swap!  Organized by Victoria on the 15 Minutes of Play blog.  It has been so fun for me to use some of my scraps, and think of the math behind quilting.  I do have a chemical engineering degree, so it feels good to reactivate that portion of my brain after chasing toddlers and children for 10 years.


I started with an idea of what I wanted to try in my head, and for the most part it pieced together as I visioned (although I did have to cut out one more row (or 'book') as I was putting it all together.  So this is my {first} 'Stack of Books'  I love books, so this is appropriate.   I think that I need one in my living room!


Now all I have left to do is the binding (hand sewing!!!)

I really wanted to try free motion quilting on this little piece, but I do not have the correct foot for my machine.  I think I'll invest in that item on my next trip to JoAnns or fabric.com.  Plus, maybe I should try it before I use it on something I am giving to someone!!
