I Heart Scraps
Hi! It's Sherri from A Quilting Life! It's always fun to be posting here at Stash Manicure (thank you Samm)! I also have a post over at my blog today--that post and this one begin the same but also have different ideas at the end--I hope you'll stop by a A Quilting Life as well!
Well, I love scraps and all the fun things you can do with them...so today I thought I'd share just a few of my ideas. I've been collecting 2 1/2" squares for a scrappy quilt for a couple of years now. It's okay if this quilt takes a long time to complete...I want it to have lots and lots of variety.
I'm making blocks in six different color ways--pinks/purples, reds, oranges, blues, yellows, and greens. Actually, just the other day I figured out how I want to set them all together--when I started this project I had no idea what I was going to do with these blocks, but now I have the quilt completely planned. I just need to save a few more scraps.
Jodi (yes, THE Jodi of Pleasant Home) made me the adorable "Snap Happy" bag above. She used scraps, and it's just as cute as can be!
I recently made these two little zipper bags--again using strips from my stash. Whenever I cut out a quilt I cut the remaining pieces into strips or squares so they're ready to go for a scrappy project!
Well, these are just a few of the ways I use my scraps. I also use a lot of my scraps to make hexagons...but I'll save that for another post! Have a great day!
