A Scrappy Thing

You might remember a quilt we made this fall, the Crossroads quilt that went to the local AIDS project auction.....

Well, thoughtful stitcher A scooped up all the silky tie scraps after we finished putting the blocks together and put them in a bag for me to take home. You might remember I love scraps and proclaim there are no scraps too small to save.

I like to make little gifts for my friends this time of year. I stitched together the scraps and made a coaster for everyone in our stitch group, so we would have a little remembrance of a very good quilt.

I will give them out today - here is one I am keeping. It measures 5" square and is backed with a bit of upholstery fabric.

Ho Ho HO!

  2. That is a perfect gift! There is so much to see in this mini quilt.

  3. These are fabulous, scrappy rules! I too believe there is almost no scrap too small to be saved. I always remember the poet Donald Hall writing about his grandfather's barn in New Hampshire. He found an old tin with a label that read : String Too Short To Be Saved. And there they were.....
