Project Scrap Busting






I am not sure if it was the 3 overflowing 18 gallon tubs of fabric, or just the need to organize. I did watch a show about hoarding, and I felt like I was a fabric hoarder. So time to do a project with the scraps. This came to me as I was sorting through some of the other piles of fabric. Why not do a 1 inch strip quilt. This is a 2 quilt project, one representing day, and the other night.  This project took some real planning on my part.  I drew it out the way I wanted, then got to work cutting strips.    Those are all the details I will give now, you will have to stay tuned for the reveal, which will be awhile. I have the first top 80% done.  I am very pleased with the project so far, but I must keep going, so it is off to the quilt room I go!

Lovely project for the scraps of fabric! (I'm a raw materials hoarder, too.)

I like your project. The colors flow together so nicely. I think it is so nice when something as mundane as destashing can turn into something beautiful.

fantastic idea! I love it when something I've been holding onto for forever can get all used up in a beautiful project!
