So my WIP this week is a project that will take some time, rumor has it I need about 4,000 pieces. Yep I will be cutting up all those scraps that have been stuffed into a box for the last six months. At first I was tossing out anything less than three inches or so, that is until I saw a beautiful quilt a fellow guild member Robi made with small squares. Her quilt is so awsome and can be found on the WNY MQG site. At first I was saving them to give away, I am not keen on working with little pieces. As the box got filled with such beautiful colors, ones I loved enough to put into quilts I decided why not. I am cutting them into 2 1/2" and 1 1/2" squares, so far they are sorted by colors we'll see how long that last.
While saving the scraps I also started saving salvages just because I thought the colored dots and designers name were interesting, have not decided what to do with them yet.
Do you save your scraps for yourself or someone else? Have you ever made a quilt with all small squares? Did you use a pattern or wing it? Love to hear from you
Wish I was sewing,
