Well, strange times call for drastic actions - and I have been plowing through scraps like crazy! Since last Wednesday, I completed the blue string top, which I named "Georgia on My Mind"...
...went on to make this top, utilizing some old string blocks that had been gathering dust for way too long....
...and today I finished all the pieces for this string top! It is totally appalling to me that it only took the contents of one small tub of strings to make this quilt. How is that possible? At this rate, I will never plow through all my scraps!
So there's a good bit of scrap-busting going on around here. It's better than eating your feelings, right? So I fully anticipate that this trend will continue for the next week or so. We shall see!
And just in case strings aren't your thing, take a look at some of the beautiful inspiration I found on Instagram this week!
Isn't that a fabulous use of scraps? Total improv. It just makes me smile!
This is such a simple block, but it is certainly making a joyful quilt!
This is a fun way to use up left over triangles - one corner of a white square instead of two, and it gives a cool bit of movement to the quilt!
Technically, this isn't a pic of a scrap quilt - it's a design for Sweetwater's new Christmas line, I believe - but wouldn't it be a great way to use up scraps AND work in a leftover piece of needlework or a panel piece?
And finally, this lovely bit of scrappiness that is a great example of gradation!
So now, my fellow scrap hoarders - - - go forth and sew!
