Go BIG SCRAPS


We've been working quite a lot on small scraps, so what if you go big on your scraps?  These various sized blocks are going together very quickly, and using the bits I cut off to make the next blocks, add up just as fast.  

I used a mixture of Shirtings, scraps from my scrap bins hand selected, and cut some yardage just to have some Variety.  I have a few prints I am hoping to keep flowing through the entire quilt..

Also, take note to find your lightest VALUE and your DARKEST VALUE to give some depth and dimension.

 QUilt, Pillows,bags, the sky is hte limit, Do someplay andpost your work,We'd all love to see what you've been working on.,

New to the site?  Send me an email and I can invite you to play and post along with us!

Show me what you can do with 15 minutes and some big scraps...  Try something new, I dare you!

I love what you've done, that's in my favorite color range! It's big enough for a lot of possibilities... you could even just square it up, border it, bind it - bingo, a quilt!

Thank you for pointing out that you've cut into new yardage to create "scraps" for this. Sometimes I need to be reminded that there are no rules. ;- )
