I looked at those bins and couldn't see any possibilities. I had just read a blog post form someone else, that talked about sorting their scraps into color ways. Maybe that would help. So, I sorted and sorted, and sorted, and sorted………You get the picture. I sorted into an autumn group, a red group, a neutral group and a black and white group. The rest went back into the bins. At least the lids would close now. Now, what to make? I love doll quilts, so they immediately came to mind.
I decided to stay with the Civil War theme for now.
I love those double pinks!
These are just from four-patches. I haven't even thought about
all of the other options.
Of course, log cabins are always a good solution for 1-1/2" strips. So I tried a quilt as you go version of a table runner. Its even finished! All of the doll quilts still need quilting.
Lately I've been attracted to the braid patterns. Chevrons are so popular right now, so I decided to give that a try. Here's a table runner from a braid pattern. I think this could be quilted as you go, but didn't try it this time.
I'm going to make an attempt to link up with Oh Scrap! I love the name of Cynthia's blog and she always has great ideas for scrap quilting. She is having a linky party this week, so here goes.
Hopefully this works for you. She has some great ideas so you can
Keep on Stitchin'
