I believe I've mentioned before that I find old fabrics and old, unfinished quilt blocks to be incredibly inspiring. I just love the colors, the patterns, the textures, the... dare I say it, possibilities. So I couldn't pass up this bin of vintage unassembled Ocean Waves quilt blocks. I got these for a rock-bottom price, because they are kind of sort of not really assembled. At all. Only one of the units was actually completed. The rest of them are still in their individual triangles: So, yes, I paid good money for a bag of teeny tiny scraps. Granted, consistently shaped scraps, but scraps nonetheless. And yes, I did know this was what I was buying. I couldn't help myself. Look at all the colors, the amazing vintage fabrics. I mean, just from a pattern catalog point of view these little scraps are invaluable. But that's not the only reason. I also couldn't help myself from saying, "Oh man, those poor little triangles. They need me! If I don't buy them, they'll just languish here, unloved and unsewn. I can't let that happen!" Or it's without question, certainly probable, theoretically plausible that I'm over-glamorizing what actually happened. It's possible that what really happened was, "Mmmmm....fabric. Must bid." But I'm nothing if not idealistic. :-)
