And how can you pick what you want to use if you can't see what you have?!?
So my friend Barb found me these great containers to sort scraps into.
Okay now scraps...jump in there and sort yourselves into colour groupings!!
Do I have to do everything?!? LOL
Remember this post from August, when I was coincidentally doing exactly the same thing as today!?!? I was inspired to sew up a scrappy pinwheel block from the Friday Block Party pattern of the week. I think I made that block because I was bored to death with the sorting and pressing scraps job...and I wanted to get to the fun/sewing part, which is way more fun!
And then in September I sorted and cut more 1 1/2" scraps for a prairie point border - click here to see them.
Well, now the 14" mini quilt is finished (minus a hanging sleeve)!
The pinwheels have 71 scraps, and the prairie point borders have 56 scraps, for a grand total of 127 little bits used up from the scrap treasury!
