Scraps. They breed on their own, we all know it.

I decided to contain them in a basket and made the rule that when it got full I had to sew them up. So I did, improv, cut into 9″ squares. They made good backs, and a few fronts. But that gets boring after a few hundred blocks.

Note to self: Perhaps the size of scrap that goes into the basket needs to be smaller so they don’t fill the basket so quickly. Hm.

So I separated them by color and again with the improv cut into 9″ blocks.

Always love crosses, so some improv crosses. That was fun.


Now what other patterns can you sew with scraps? Because this quilt, though 63″ x 72″ did not make much of a dent in the scrap basket.

See ya.
