    my scrap busting project

    I save a lot of smaller cut of pieces, and finally decided on something do to with them. After ironing and sorting, I had over 50 color groups to work with. Ended up with 99 blocks, so I made a black one. It looks fine next to the dark browns.

    Was thinking of doing something more random, but I think I like this better.



    The best part, I've really knocked down my scrap collection!
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    Great idea to shade the blocks in groups throughout the quilt. It's different, which is nice. Well done for reducing those growing scraps. Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome scrap buster. I like this layout much better than a random.

    Beautiful use of all those unused scraps that some of us tend to throw away!
