Wrangling my Scraps

 I had a blog friend ask how I handle all the scraps that making quilts seem to leave us with...so, I took some pictures of how I handle my scraps:):)   As my fabric yardage gets to a certain size I don't put them back...I cut them up into the following configurations.... Above, I have 3 drawers filled with cut squares. Just waiting to be used when ever I need them:):)
                                ...then I have buckets filled with strips....2 1/2 inch strips.....
                                                       ..... 1 1/2 inch strips.....
                                      ...and 1/2 inch stripes for making bowls and rugs:):)
                            Well...I hope this helps you in trying to wrangle your scraps:):)

                                                               Have a great day:):)
                                                               Much love- Sandie

New Kaffe Quilt in the Making:):)

 I decided to go over to one of the local quilt shops with a friend and join a quilt group that meets once a month...called ...Kaffe and Friends. As I'm sure you can guess...we will focus on a quilt pattern every month...that we make out of Kaffe Fasset fabrics. ....and since I have a HUGE stash of his stuff...I am using this club to help me use it up:):) I will make all the tops they throw at me...some I will keep and quilt, while others I will throw on ebay..and sell as tops:):) Here is the first pattern....
a zigzag quilt with no side triangle....all straight line stitching:):) The original post for this quilt is over on Bee Square Fabrics....they will have all the cutting measurements:):)

                                                           ...sew your strip sets......
  
press them......
...cut them apart.....
 ...line them up on your planning board....you will sew on the diaginal. Then chop off all the edges:):)
Easy Peasy:):) I love easy peasy...LOL!!!

For more details go HERE for the original blog post:):)
Have an awesome day:):)
Much love - Sandie
