Late last week Missy blogged about needing some help making some simple blocks for a Prayer quilt. Before getting my blocks made, she had a follow up post mentioning she thought plaids would work nicely for these blocks. Well I've tons of plaids in yardage but also knew the scrap box had a few usable pieces. See the fabrics intended to used BEHIND this cute pile that will go in the "using now" scrap boxes.
Might as well sort everything while digging. I don't ever want to do this again. It's time for separate boxes per color.
The arrow below is pointing to
miscuts, cutoffs and forgotten orphan blocks. These will be added to a different scrap stash. Somewhere in this mess is a box just for making quick little quilts from leftovers with stitches.
White takes up most of the 2 large scrap boxes and then blue coming in second. I've been collecting yellow and blue scraps along with fat quarters for about 2 years. The intention is to make a quilt (designed by yours truly) with bluebirds. Maybe next year and offer it as a free BOM here on the blog. Anyone interested? It's tons of applique, 12 blocks surrounding a larger center applique.
Almost done sorting by color, next will be sorting by size...Ugggg...what have I started! These can wait until the prayer blocks have been made and mailed.
