Scraps, scraps, scraps

Scraps, scraps, scraps – after a day and a half of cutting, I am 2/3 done.  This smaller box is still waiting its turn.

These are what these squares look like all cut into usable pieces (I cut 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5 and 6″ squares)  and

these are the larger pieces, but not big enough to put with the fat quarters as well as lengths from bindings etc.  These bins are all overflowing and remember I still have a box to do.    I have no idea how many quilts can be made with all these, but it will be several.   I feel as if I should invite you over to play in my sandbox – well scrap box, and we could make some very pretty quilts.

Cutting gives me lots of reflection time.  I remember the quilts made from the fabrics, and sometimes I think about the scraps of my life and how they have come together with Master Quiltmaker in charge.   And yes, there are still pieces for which to find a special use.

Tomorrow is Costco time.  The dogs are wanting treats and the DH would like a few things as well.

  1. What a wonderful way to spend a few hours (or day)! All those colours, and the memories… I should probably do that more often too. I use a lot of 2.5″ x 4.5″ rectangles too – you can make a lot of different block combinations with just those blocks, or add in 2.5″ squares and you get another bunch of blocks.
    Do you have a cutting machine, or do you cut everything with a rotary cutter?
    I`d love to come play in your scrap box with you! I`ll bring mine – that would be a lot of fun!
