Scraps!


 I commented on Gene’s “More Scrappy Fun” post that I never seem to be able to make anything from my fabric scraps. For years I donated them to a guild friend we called the “Crumb Queen”. She used every scrap somehow and made beautiful things. Inspired by that memory and Gene’s recent blocks,  I tried again. The one I made this morning is upper right in the photo. Then I found the other two in a drawer. So I guess I did do this in the past and am still able to do it now. It was a lot of sewing though. I don’t know if I’ll do it again!

  1. I understand about a lot of sewing because I don't have the patience nor am I good at making nice corners on blocks that like. That said, yours look super and I love seeing them. Happy new week. Hugs-Erika

  3. If I can't tear it, I can't make it. I'm incredibly impressed. That takes a skill I don't possess.

  4. Your blocks are terrific!! The sewing doesn't bother me - it's that the pile of scraps never seems to go down - LOL - ;))

  5. Terrific! It is a lot of sewing. But for me that is part of the fun. I love the little pieces in the top right one. Those make people think you worked harder. LOL
