Scraps again, NOT too small at all
I made some blocks the easy way - I added triangles that were WAY too big and cut them down to size.
SO I had some SCRAPS. They were strips: several inches long, averaging about 1 inch wide.
I resolved I would not save them. No way, I would throw them out......
and as they piled up on my cutting table, I noticed a red remnant sitting right there that would look SO nice with them....so I cut it up. My strips varied in size a little, but ranged from 7/8" to a little over 1 inch wide...
I sewed until I ran out of red fabric. I cut and turned and stitched. The skinnier the strips got, the more interesting I thought it looked.
Here is the little quilt I came up with. I need to trim it, back it and quilt it.
It didn't take long at all.
Remember, there are no scraps too small to save (hardly). Try it! It's like playing with fabric!
