Scraps

The great scrap organizing project of '09 continues.

A pile of 1.5" squares:
1.5" Squares

I have no ambitions to make a king size "postage stamp" quilt in which no two squares are alike. Nothing like that. But there seem to be a lot of people on craftster tackling these, so I thought I would package up some squares and small scraps to give away, and figured I might as well cut one set for me to play with...

This is to be my experiment in curved piecing. I decided to start small; a girl baby quilt from scraps.

This morning or today I should finish up the scrap overflow box. Ahem. Yes, that means I haven't actually touched the so-full-it-barely-closes scrap box yet.

Well done. Aren't the neat little piles satisfying?
I'll be eager to hear about your curved piecing, which I have yet to undertake myself.

Yikes! those squares are small.

Good luck with that scrap box!

I had this amazing experience last weekend when, after I put backs on a few of the StormQuilts, a bin that couldn't be closed before now accepts its lid beautifully. It is the first indication ever that I have actually REDUCED the amount of raw fabric in my house!
