Think Scrappy

Note the boxes, full of scraps, stored above the cabinets
Scrap quilts are a distinctly American art form and I love to make them! Why? it is all about the
fabric. One of quilting's biggest appeals is the ability, or more accurately the need, to collect and keep lots of different fabrics. I love my stash, and a scrap quilt project allows me to use some of my long forgotten favorites.

I have talked about this before, but I cut my scraps into usable pieces. Squares of various sizes work best for me. So I cut 1 1/2, 2 1/2 4 1/2, 5 1/2 and 6 1/2" squares plus a few strips.

This year as always I plan to make more quilts!
