    Attack of the scraps!

    http://littlemissshabby.blogspot.com...-tutorial.html

    Starting my New Years Resolution a little early! Scraps are overtaking my house but I found this pattern to help.

    and NO...not gonna cut into 1.5 in squares! But sewing strips to fit the size I need.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    I've got that on my list of things to do, too. But I was thinking using charm squares and going for a whole quilt!

    Great blocks. Thanks for the link. Gotta finish Christmas projects first but I'd love to try these later.

    I use my GO to cut squares for scrappy quilts........and also cut strips with it.....makes the cutting go a lot faster and more accurate.....for me anyway

    Looks good. I agree with Willferg about doing it on a larger scale. I was thinking of doing it with my stash of Asian style fabrics, most all of which have a larger scale pattern, so a 5 inch block would work better.

    I'm struggling to finish my Trial Mix quilt made from a bazillion 1 1/2" squares, so right now I kind of have an aversion to tiny pieces. . . .

    Thanks for sharing!
