I've been trying to use up my scraps but haven't made a dent., originally uploaded by nkiblueeyes.
I have a problem. A scrap problem. I am not one to throw things away. You might mistake me for a fabric hoarder, but I like to think of myself more as careful to not waste.
I had some yardage of various green solid fabrics, so I cut them into about 9 inch squares, marked a couple lines down them diagonally with a 1 1/2 inch thick ruler. Then I let the center of the green blocks shine through.
Also, I chopped lots of my scraps into strips. Didn't sort them. Didn't worry about how thick or thin, as long as they were at least 1 inch thick.
All that was left was to get busy sewing. :)
I have plenty of scraps and have hardly made a dent in the scrap pile. To be continued...
