Strippy, Scrappy Start

I cut the pieces for 8 out of 9 large blocks for the scrap quilt from my scrap heap the other night. These aren’t stash pieces or fat quarters, these are from the total discard pile. A saner less fabric addicted person would have thrown out these pieces long ago. My thrifty grandmother would be so very proud. This makes me inordinately pleased.

    Looks like a great start to me! I’m with your grandmother, scraps are fabulous!

    I have a drawer where I toss all the small-but-not-too-small pieces. It’s getting pretty full so someday I’ll do a wacky scrap quilt as well. Can’t wait to see yours progress!
