Scrap and Sew
Finally today I finished pressing all my scraps after weeks of ironing a little bit at a time.
This is one task I wanted to complete before returning to work.
Now I have a white laundry basket full of pieces great for applique and such.
What is now left are a bunch of crumbs in the wicker basket.
So, I decided to create with the crumbs instead of taking care of the UFO pile on my sewing table.
First up is a little mat I made using 1.5 inch squares.
I thought I would make it into a sewing table mat to lay my sharp items.
Once I added the borders it looked like such a cute little quilt that I decided I need to make some more of these little mats.
So, mini quilt 2 came along. I just pieced some crumbs together to create my own fabric.
At this time, I did not add a colored border to this one because now I cannot decide if I want to make little quilts or piece all these blocks together and make a big quilt???
I love the little quilt concept but I have absolutely no place to display them.
I can make them all into mats but how many mats do I need?
Then I decided to make a crazy quilt one so I went to my EQ6 and reduced my crazy blocks down to 3.5 inches , hence mini quilt #3 which does not have the borders yet.
What to do my cyber friends????
I am going to keep making these little 7x10 cuties but what should I do with them??
