Pardon the quality of this photo but here is a sneak peek at something I will be working on for some time to come. A while back I started cutting up all my scraps into different size squares: 2 inch, 4 inch etc. Well, I filled a sandwich baggie full of those little 2″ square scraps and realized that they should no longer be squares.
I could tell once I saw them all tucked nicely in their little baggie that these little babies were destined for something greater, something with more edges. They needed to undergo a transformation and become what they were meant to be – paper pieced hexagons with an edge of .75″.
The hexagons have now moved from their old home in their plastic bag to vintage mason jars (quite the upgrade if you ask me). Now they are waiting for more friends to join them in their new homes.
What do you do with your scraps? Save them up for quilts, pillows, bags etc? I would love to hear from you.
Thanks for reading!
P.S. If anyone has any ideas on where to get some scraps free or cheap
(mostly tone on tone, solid or white and color prints) I would love to
hear your ideas.
