As a kid I hated "leftovers". The reason they were left over was no one wanted them. That's not the case with fabric.
Last year I had some scraps I felt were too good to throw out and with reference to the frugal patchworkers of previous generations I thought I'd try to use them. I made lots of these
I had an idea and put them together but they didn't really appeal so if you look closely you may see some threads still at the edges. There are quite a few more where these came from and it would be a shame to toss them out so I am trying to come up with an alternative design to use them.
Speaking of leftovers I seem to have accumulated lots of 1.5" strips so I thought I'd try a slightly different version of "Muffet's Way". If you do look back, it is the quilt in the middle picture of that post. Below, I have used reproduction fabrics in smaller blocks
I have been working on it this weekend and would like to have 25 blocks all sewn up by Tuesday. Scrap quilts appeal to me above all other styles, even though I love album quilts. It feels good to avoid throwing leftovers out.
