Scraps rules

I felt like trimming. My off cuts from flying geese became 1.5" squares.

I need 40 pcs for mug rug and I ended up with 70 pcs which gives me options to play.

Plus there is this pile. Trash it or experiment? I feel like experimenting. It must be the rain we finally got. The temperature dropped so my brain is fully functional again, lol.

Remember the bag of scraps I got from a friend? Well I opened it up and it was an overwhelming experience.

My machine was covered by those scraps and I got lost while sorting. I have way too many ideas and I probably won't use every single bit. There are number of florals and multi colored pieces which are definitely out of my comfort zone. So we'll see what happens next. It's not their time yet.

Linking up with Scraptastic Tuesday and

Quilting is more fun than Housework


  1. I really love how you find joy in using up the very last bits of fabric, Vera. I can't wait to see what you create with these teases!

  2. You are the best at using up scraps Vera! your friend gave you quite and interesting bunch.
    Have you ever seen a "confetti quilt" It uses little bits you chop up with your rotary cutter. I saw someone do a stunning allium flower that way once. Yay! I found the link:

  3. I cannot wait to see what you do with these, Vera! It is going to be awesome, I can feel it in my bones!! :)

  4. Those are some interestingly shaped scraps. Looking forward to seeing what you make. I always enjoy seeing what you share with Oh Scrap!

  5. Nice fabrics Vera, looking forward to seeing what you do with those teeny tiny bits!

  6. I love seeing what you create from scraps! What fun and how interesting to use "someone else's " scraps.

  7. Wow, these look really exciting! and florals with multicolours, too! Have fun! x Teje

  8. Oh my goodness - you are amazing using those scraps. I get so overwhelmed by them all and end up throwing the tiny pieces away.
