    Scraps - what to do with them?

    I also have a huge stash of scraps and need to use them up. What is "mile a minute'? Thank you.
    Love the site.

    All you need to do is Google it and you'll find out how ... it's a technique that let's you put together your scraps in a "mile a minute". Well, not quite that quickly, but it is a speedy-piecing method!

    i cut my scraps into 2.5" strips and store them by color... then i can use them whenever doing log cabins, or strip piecing or any other strip style... anything smaller than that is chopped into confetti and stored by color for future confetti blocks... just because I enjoy both these techniques...

    Mile a min is one strip then chain stitch crumbs to them. Keep adding to make them large blocks

    I have this down as mile a minute..but in the blog, its called 'crumb blocks'.They are fun and kinda of addictive! I also make string blocks and postage stamp blocks. When my scraps get smaller than 2x 2, they go into the dog bed pile.

    Thanks so much for this tutorial - I've forwarded the weblink you provided to a friend of mine who wants to use up her huge scrap pile.
