Some new year's day sewing while the girls were mooching around in their pyjamas. I have taken over my daughter's desk and set it up with my sewing machine and basket of scraps. Occasionally the scraps take over the dining table while I search for that elusive piece, but once it gets out of control I sort them all out by size - crumbs to use up first, recognisable shapes like squares and triangles, and then larger pieces. Any irregular shaped pieces are getting cut down to strips triangles and squares as that's what I'm using most - hand cut with scissors.
This is what I got done in one morning. Not sure how sensible I am in choosing so many crumb sized scraps to make a king/queen sized quilt, but I'll make up time with the sashing (which will pieced too, but I have some nice long pieces).
This is what I aim to have left over at the end of the quilt. That's all I'm throwing out. If I've got fabric left over when I've finished the front, then I'll just have to turn it over and piece the back:)
Best wishes and happy sewing in the new year!
