I was going through my scrap bins to cut and organize when I found a bunch of the black flowered print. There were at least 25 pieces leftover from a quilt a did a couple years ago. Seemed to me that I could put them in a quilt. So I calculated the largest piece I could cut from my scraps which was a 7.5 by 4 inch brick. Not too much you can do with that size! Here's what I came up with.
42 x 52.5
I wish I had taken a picture of the first couple layouts. They were terrible! I tried with a black V and random colors around it. Then I tried just random placement. Agh! It didn't look good until I started putting some order to it. But now I am pleased with the rainbow look it has and that black floral print is not in my scrap boxes.
I tried to finish off some of the colored prints from the front so I wouldn't have to put them back in my stash. My bins are full and I need to get some of it used up! I really am trying not to buy anymore, but when something is on sale (a really good sale) how can I resist! But full bins are full bins and I like to keep things put away. Hope you all have a great week of sunshine and sewing!
