    7 WAYS TO USE UP YOUR CRUMBS - SCRAP QUILTING

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g63Llnx4900

    Enjoy !

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

      Well, that was fun. It gave me a really good idea too. Years ago when I first bought a layer cake for a chevron quilt, I had the bright idea to cut them into charms and make HST's. Umm, what a mess. I ran across the bag a couple of weeks ago. It's blue and white, nautical feel to it. I'm going to treat them as scraps and forget all that never ending squaring up. Might even chop them up more first and toss them around. Maybe do a picture diary. lol

          image_118015.gif I think this gal has some great ideas, however, she (for some unknown reason) irritates me so I normally don't watch her, but thanks for the info Annika!

            She always has such great ideas plus she is fun to watch. I have lots of small scraps and a roll of adding machine paper and one of these days I will drag it all out. I thought it was very interesting to see her cut 5 strips of adg mach paper 18" long, line them up horizontally one below, the other (not stacked) and then sew one scrap on each strip going down. Is that normal? I just assumed you would fill up one strip completely, put it aside, then repeat for each paper strip. Does anyone know why Karen Brown did it like this in the video? Thank you for the link, I enjoyed watching it.

              Chain piecing is my guess. Save on thread. I thought this was brilliant!

              I went back to that and she just said she likes working with that size and saves a trip to the ironing board. I think 20'' would be more useful so you can get 5'' and 10'' lenghts out of it. Maybe do it in different color groups?

            I've seen someone do this every time they have scraps amd just keep adding to the roll. Then cut lenghts to use as needed.

              Thanks for sharing! I have a hard enough time with scrappy..lol I always want to control it. Interesting ideas though. I would probably do by color. I almost had to laugh at her bucket I have enough to fill a garbage bag lol

                I enjoy Karen's tutorials. I watched that one earlier today. I also watched one by Lori Holt where she uses 3" squares for the block she's currently making. My scraps are not organized. Being a bit OCD & perfectionist, it's difficult for me to just grab scraps & sew them together. I'm always wanting things to be matchy-matchy. I don't cut up my scraps. I like to leave them whatever size they are until I know what size strip or block I'll need. I have a lot of 2.5" strips left over from bindings & other strips trimmed from batting -- that still need to have the stitching removed. At the current price of fabric, I don't want to waste those trimmings.

                  Joy I'm the same. I know others organize scraps but I dont either. I make other things so I leave then as the scrap they are. It has come in handy for projects.

                  My scraps aren't cut to any size. I just put them sorted by color into those cloth cube things. I use a lot of scraps when making applique projects, Christmas ornaments, etc.
                  Hike, my batting scraps are joined as needed with a zigzag stitch.
