Every little bit helps

On my 2015 must do list is a personal commitment to use not only my stash fabrics, but all those scraps from quilt tops and backs of the past. Fabric bits that are too big to toss, but too small to cut into any consistent shape.

Some of the fun things I've attempted so far

Valentine hearts- 2 types

Improv piecing (you get a very different look depending on what kinds of scraps you are working with. I like both looks!
    Chihuly inspired scraps (most of these were in odd shapes of all kinds).


    Black and white (and shades between) scraps (most of these were strip cut scraps of varying widths).



More on the Chihuly and black and white Sew my stash 2015 adventures as these become quilts….


  1. I think its fun to play with scraps. Here's another one you can add to your list of what to do with scraps: put them in an bag and mail them to someone else to play with! or do an exchange.

  2. I've been having fun focusing on using my scraps this year, your black and white quilt is especially great.

  3. I do find that when I get caught up in an improv quilt using scraps the creative juices flow more so than yardage fresh off the bolt. It's a pretty messy and overwhelming process sometimes too. Love all that you've done here!


If you don't speak up, I won't know what's in your mind…….
