More Scraps!





While going through my blue and green scrap baskets, I took all pieces at least 3.5" wide or more and trimmed to 3.5" width by whatever length they were.  ( I did cut up some longer strips into shorter pieces) 

Then I divided them into two piles, light and dark.  I used the Jelly Roll Race method (google jelly roll race and there are lots of video tutorials)to whip up these two quilt tops.  They both ended up around 50"x60".  And I still have enough light strips to make another quilt this size.  It's amazing how much fabric is in those mounds of scraps!

Now I just need to get these all quilted up!

  4. I am now very tempted to do something similar with my blue scraps because my drawer is full. Like really full.

  5. The larger scale and disciplined palette look really nice! I especially like the vertically oriented quilt.
