So I've been adding a block here and there to my collection and this is where I'm up to:
Its coming along. I think 16 blocks will be enough by the time I add sashing and I think I might add a border as well and that should get me to the right size. I'll wait and see what my block swap partner sends me this month and if its a BWR block I'll only need one more - yay!
I found a book at the library this week that I thought sounded interesting and so far it has been. Its called Scrap Therapy - Cut the Scraps! (7 Steps to Quilting Your Way through Your Stash) by Joan Ford. I had a bit of a look through it last night and it sounds like a good approach. The idea is to cut your scraps (over a period of time) into either 5", 3.5" and 2" squares according to the size of what you're starting with and then when you want to make a scrap quilt you grab the pieces and away you go. These sizes will work together well too.
She does suggest anything smaller than 2" square you should throw away but I'm determined to have a go at a crumb quilt this year so I think I'll hold on to them for now until I've given it a go and know whether I like the process/result.
What does everyone else get up to with their scraps?
Have a great weekend!
