I have been doing a lot of scrap and stash sewing in the last two weeks, but I'm going to hold off on showing those until the Rockin' Rectangles quilt-along starts this Sunday. In the meantime, I've been amazed at all the beautiful scrappy goodness that's been flooding Instagram! I guess everyone starts their year with a resolution to use their scraps. So here's a little bit of inspiration to jumpstart your year...
What a great way to use up those bonus HSTs! And I've got a pile of them just waiting to find a purpose....
If you missed out on the Scrappy Trips Around The World craze, I think this would be enough to make you want to take a trip! You can find a tutorial for this block by clicking here.
I've made a couple of quilts by this pattern, and it's so easy to make - I highly recommend it if you have lots of strings!
Take a look at Tish's beautiful two-color star! This makes my heart happy - and I'm sure I could find sufficient scraps in my stash to make something like this...
I love the simplicity of this quilt - and if you're not into curved piecing, you can always appliqué your circles on to a charm quilt! Here's a handy tutorial to making appliqué circles using fusible web.
And FYI, Valentine's day is just around the corner - here's a couple of great pillows you could make with the contents of your red scrap tub! I really love the one with the words embroidered on it - so sweet!
Are you feeling inspired yet? I definitely want to make some of the pillows - a quick and easy finish is always so satisfying! I have two grandgirls who would love these - I think it would make a great Valentine's Day gift for them. Time to raid the scrap tubs!
Let's do some scrappy sewing!
