Well, I still have a scrap problem, and I haven't had much time to work on correcting it in the last month... but I did have two finishes in the last couple of weeks that kept some things from making their way into the scrap bin, so I'm calling that a win!!
First up, two pillows made from the HSTs left over from my most recent Supernova quilt...
Rather than throw them in the orphan block bin, I decided to take a few minutes and sew them up into pillow covers. By doing the straight line quilting on my long arm, I was able to quilt them up really quickly, and an envelope closure on the back and some binding to finish the edge made this a fast finish - and they match the quilt!
Then, I had leftover wedges from my Wedge Play quilt, and the shape was so interesting, I really wanted to save them rather than toss them... so I took off the smallest part of the wedge and put sashing between them, then assembled them into a pretty table runner I call Chopsticks!
The straight line quilting on this took a bit longer - I did it on my tabletop machine, and actually did matchstick quilting in the sashing between the wedges to make the prints stand out more. That takes a lot of time - - - and thread! But it's so worth it.
And it's so nice to have some new pieces to decorate my house instead of more scraps in my scrap bin!!
I also want to share a really unique version of one of the Stunning Stars quilts made by Meredith!
I really love the way she used the bonus HSTs to create the pinwheels in her border - way to go, Meredith! Wish I'd thought of that myself!!
Now - go forth and slay that scrap monster!!
