Th opportunity with doing a tutorial on random piecing is that you end up with a healthy start on an improvised quilt top.
I sewed all my chip and chunks into blocks and started to play with a layout.
Added some Kona ash.
It's grown a little bit since I took this photo (into a completed top) but my lighting isn't great and I didn't have room to lay down an entire top. :-( But you get the gist.
Using up my leftover pieces in the centre improv block meant that 8 fat quarters ultimately boiled down to this pretty tiny pile of scraps. The pile of ash scraps is a little larger but I used the better part of 3 yards on background and binding strips. I'm thinking I'll quilt it with orange lines... We'll see.
Weather-wise, not so much. I woke up to this.

I started a pair of socks. I have a history of knitting something simple during playoffs (hands busy, mouth quieter) and finished a long-running project last year so I need a new one. This will not be it.
I was reminded after missing a goal, and having to take back every other repeat, that lace and hockey don't mix. Back to the drawing board...
