I keep my fabric scraps in a plastic bin and lately have had problems closing the lid. I keep all scraps, big or small, because you just never know when you need that itty bitty bit of fabric. Right? But is was definitely time to deal with them, either make something with them or .... or what?
I started by cutting lots of 1.5 inch strips and then pieced them together by color. That is, either four strips of red or green, or blue etc. I then squared them up and made them into 4.5 inch blocks.
I laid the blocks out, moved them around until I was happy with the overall color scheme, and then pieced them together.
And look! This is what came out of my scrap bin! I did not cut into my fabric stash at all. It is a scrappy riot of color, and is now ready to be basted and quilted. I wonder what is in your scrap bin?
