Treadled Scrappy Strips




I am making slow and steady progress on my treadled scrap quilt. I have several pairs of strips sewn together in pairs with black sashing of various widths added. I keep putting them on the design wall to see what it looks like so far and I am liking it, so I will just keep on doing what I'm doing.
I might sew three strips together and see what that looks like between the black sashing.
There are so many great fabric scraps and memories in this project!

  6. Seeing this, I am feeling guilty for throwing ANY scraps away--and I feel like I save most scraps. : )
    This is going to be a wonderful record of fabrics used by you!

  7. I like your idea of varying the width of the scrappy strips, as well as the setting strips.

  10. I am foundation piecing my small scraps too! I don't have near enough to put into a quilt yet. But I do love chain piecing them thru the machine. The best part is trimming them up! They just sparkle like jewels!
