My goal while in Nebraska (only 5 months or so to go) is to go through all my scraps and make them into quilts. I don’t imagine I will finish the quilts but I do hope to have things organized and moving in that direction.
I have completed the most annoying task to organize all my little scraps by color and then cut them into 6 in, 3 1/2 in, and 2 in strips. As it turns out for the pattern I wanted to start with I needed 6 1/2 in cuts instead but I’m trying not to think about that too much.
Right now I’m working with the blues, browns, and oranges.
I am following this Penny Patch tutorial and really like how it came together. I think I am going to use this same tutorial for the other quilts as well. Unless I change my mind that is.
If you are considering making your first quilt, this is a great tutorial for beginners. Actually, being self taught, I learned a ton from it and highly recommend it.
That’s all for now but I suspect there will be more scrap talk in the near future.
