Scraps! Scraps! Scraps!

It has been a long time...months in fact since I had a clean ironing board!
And months since I had no full scrap bins piled underneath my ironing board!
After several months of sorting and cutting scraps I have them all doesn't look like much for all the effort I put in but I will get 3 or 4 beautiful scrap lap quilts out of these.
First I cut the hexagons, next the pairs of strips (for a French braid quilt) and finally with what was left I cut 2-1/2" squares. I emptied at least 5 boxes...and maybe more...
...I shall not let my scraps get so out of control again.... 
Let the quilting begin once again! Happy stitching!

  1. Everything looks so nice and neat and sounds like you have a good plan. But good luck on not letting the scraps get out of control again.
