I have to admit that I am kind of crazy when it comes to scrap collecting….I have shoe boxes, drawers and shopping bags full of scraps!
Probably only half of these scraps are actually from my own projects, I have adopted scraps from my mums stash and multiple friends stashes too!
Today I came across Bonnie Hunters new leaders and enders challenge….Tonight I have started preping!
I love leaders and enders! It should put a dent in my scraps (hopefully) and it feels like you are making two quilts for the price of one!
Now, what do you do with those little triangles that get cut off when you are making Flying Geese and similar units?
Well I know it is crazy but I save them….I have heaps of tiny Half Square Triangles sewn together from the X and + blocks.
And I have some from the QAL we are doing at the moment….
This is a block I made with the HST’s I made from leftover triangles from Jess’ Pieced Star blocks. Plus a couple from an earlier block too. The corner squares are cut from the scrap rectangles from my St Louis Star block.
This block will be 8.5” finished. I think I will hold onto it and see what other scraps come out of this quilt!
Nothing is wasted!
