Divided into neat little baskets, I thought, "hmmm... these are totally manageable, and I probably have enough for a nice sized scrap quilt now." I can probably bust these scrap baskets in a few hours. Yeah. Riiight.
Last night, I started sewing improv style (or slab style) and making 12.5 inch blocks. And I kept sewing...and sewing...and sewing. I've now finished up 32 blocks!
I've really grown to love sewing this way, and it's such a natural way to use scraps! So, are you ready to see my scrap baskets after all of that sewing? Here they are!
Yeah. Almost completely full. Still! I don't really know how that's possible (I'm convinced they're reproducing when my back is turned), but I'm coming to realize that I may have enough scraps in these baskets for a couple of quilts, or maybe one gigantic one with an awesomely pieced backing.
Y'all know me- I'm a one project at a time kind of girl, so I'm just going to keep at it until these baskets are empty (or almost empty).
I laid out four of the blocks so you can get a bit of an idea of how the quilt will look. I really love the whole fabric explosion look, and I love that I can look at the fabrics and see little bits of the quilts I've made and loved, that have gone on to new homes.
