Scraps, scraps, scraps! 

Yes we all have them. It’s pretty much a given if you are a quilter... you likely have built up a scrap stash.

I Don’t know about you… but I keep every tiny little scrap because you never know when you might just need that teeny tiny piece of fabric!! lol!! 

What about you? Do you

  • toss your fabric scraps?
  • or hang on to every little piece?
  • Or does it depend on the size?

Q: So what do we do with all our scraps?

A: that’s easy – make quilts

There are countless amounts of easy projects

The ideas of what to create … are not the issue

Q: how do we effectively & actually use our scraps to make these quilts

Because if we have to

  • dig through piles of scraps,
  • all different colours
  • different shapes & sizes
  • everything packed tight into that one bin or bag, or basket

 And have to sort, iron & cut all before even starting... I don’t know about you but that doesn’t seem to enticing to me!?!

I know I just want to get right to sewing... right?

And often what happens is that we just don’t end up using them

And they keep pilling up!
