blue

My blue scrap drawer was bursting at the seams!

So I opened it up and began to sew strips.
The phone book pages made a great foundation!!!
First I had to trim them square.

I think I'll be using this technique next month when
I host a sewing day at church.
We'll be making quilts for the
kids graduating from high school.

True confession:
I spent more than 15 minutes...
but I didn't have to think at all!!!
That's a blessing!!!
I will say the blue scrap drawer seems to have exploded!!!
Looks to me like there's more here than when I
BEGAN!!!!

Amen!
When I start in using my scraps, they "fluff" up.

I think you will have a nice bunch of quilts for the graduates.

I'd have a hard time stopping with strips... I'd be cutting them up again, adding and cutting and again! They do make a nice dent in your stash drawer!
