All from the scrap pile.....
3 Attachment(s)
I am definitely a scrap quilter and saver of scraps of all sizes... usually nothing less than an inch tho, thats pretty much my limit.... the colored strips finishes at 1/2 inch... I basically used the leftover scraps when i cut down my strip blocks that i made using phone book pages.. If there was an inch left, it was saved for a rainy quilt day.. Yes thats the hoarder in me, if theres any usable fabric ill keep it !!!

i know there are a few 'wide' non stitched areas ( 4 inches) but im ok with it.. its just a throw, well from scraps that would of otherwise been tossed away ! So im not concerned about the batting bunching after years of washing and usage.. I'm ok with it. I love the crinkle look!!!! Its a warm throw to cuddle under on a chilly evening. I named it "Bits N Pieces" ...

Thanks for looking..

Wonderful quilt! How clever! And to think I throw all those pieces away. I'll have to start saving them.

I'm a scrap saver too. I would rather make a quilt with scraps any day than to take yardage and cut it up! Love your Bits and Pieces:thumbup:
