Working with scraps!

I decided to try something different.  I went to a quilt shop in Houma.  I bought a $3 bag of scraps...yes, scraps...A few weeks ago I gave someone a big black garbage bag full of scraps.  Who knew I would want to try this.  It was a nice assortment of pieces.  Here they are!

I pressed the pieces and sorted them by color and then sat at  my sewing machine.  This is what I ended up with after about an hour and a half.  I have 9 very interesting 10 inch squares.  I plan to connect the with a dark fabric and make a quilt with them.  This was fun to do. 


  1. BeeBee,
    I had to laugh when I read you gave away a bag full of scraps and then had to go buy some. That happens to me everytime I take something to the Goodwill. I love this scrappy quilt and will look forward to seeing it complete!

  2. I've done that too..Give scraps away & then wished you hadn' did a Great Job with them your blocks look Great.

  3. okay, friend, two words: OH WOW!
