I'd bet serious money that I'm not the only person who spent a large portion of primary school re-arranging pencils in her pencil case to make a pleasing rainbow effect. Colours - just made for playing.
I used to be a subscriber to a quilting supplies catalogue. This was before the days of on-line ordering and the shop would send out fabric samples every 6 months, about the size of postage stamps. To place an order, you stapled the sample to the order form and specified the amount you required.
I have a lot of these little postage stamp sized squares from back-catalogues, and the hoarder in me never allowed them to be thrown away. When I saw the 'colour' theme on Whiplash they began to call to me " Use us, use us....." So out they came and I played with them on the floor for a while before inspiration struck.
Little 9 patch squares, loosely themed around a colour - so here is the pieced top. Yes, I know it's not a totally finished item, but I'm not the bionic woman you know. I quilt by hand and it'll take a while to be completed. I'm just so gratified by finding a use for those itty bitty bits that have been hanging around.
Whiplash has been a real incentive for me to try something that I wouldn't otherwise have done - thank you.
