Something scrappy

Like most quilters I have scrap bins overflowing with remnants from previous quilting projects.

I try to be organised and have my strips into 2 bins, 2.5 inch ones, which consist of unused scraps from jelly rolls and quilt bindings.  The other bin contains 1 inch and 2 inch scraps as well as selvidges.

I often admire the array of scrappy quilts made by fellow quilters out of left over scraps and decided to start one of my own using the strip scraps.

I decided to make colour co ordinated block by sewing the strips together randomly.  I have trimmed these into 8 inch blocks.  This will be a WIP as I work through my scrap bins.


  1. That's putting your scraps to good use... although you now need another bin to store! Good job!

  2. Looks like your on your way to creating a wonderful quilt! Great use of those scraps.
