    Scraps and Graph Paper

    I couldn't bear to toss batik scraps so, using my son't leftover Quad Graph Paper, I cut them down to size.

    My favorite fabrics are batiks. You did a wonderful job.

    Thanks y'all. They are all batik scraps. The finished size is 18 x 23. The actual blocks finish at 2 1/2 inches. I was trying to cut my scrap stash down to 2 inch squares and had many triangles that were not big enough to get a square but too good to toss. Now I am throwing away only little bits. I am thinking about getting it framed. Too many people think it's a placemat.

    Now that's my kind of quilt! I too make quilts from little pieces. It takes a while to sew these blocks and yes "It's not a placemat"! This is a picture of one I donated to the local hospital auction with only a third of the blocks you have made. Making this size is really appreciated as a donation quilt and people will spend $ on it over a table mat or wall hanging the same size but from larger pieces. It appeals to quilters who do not work with this size. This one earned $110.

    Kudos to you and your sunny quilt!

    Wow oksewglad, that is beautiful. I think I am hooked on them now. It's so nice to complete a project without having to run to the LQS for a back or batting. Fabric goes a long long way.

    How did you quilt this?

    Thanks and congratulations on being hooked! I just finished the center of a simple rail fence using 1" scraps that I'm making for a holiday gift exchange. Keep at it and look forward to seeing some more of your beauties.

    WOW that is sweet! Glad to know that I am not the only one that has a hard time parting with scraps. I am working on a scrap quilt to reduce the overstock
    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most...
