Scraps...

I couldn't resist these in the sale, broccoli, beans and BLAH. The broccoli has a planned use, beans and BLAH I just like.  I haven't done much sewing this month, I've been reading a lot. 
This was my first ever try at random applique with bits from the scrap bin sewn on to a muslin backing.  I liked doing the curves and random shaped bits best. I'd like to make an  old fashioned quilt with the embroidery round the edges one day but there are other things I want to do first.  I haven't done embroidery since I was at school! 
I would rather make a cathedral window quilt, I enjoyed this more and I can see possibility with it too, rainbow colours flushing from one side to the other across the whole width of the quilt.
