It's time to give my report on the progress I have made with My Scrap Problem--and I'm so happy to say I accomplished my goal.
now looks like this!
Remember I found this big stack of low volume charms in the box? I was so inspired by Sarah using her sorted scraps immediately that I decided to make a simple patchwork quilt.
One day while my Daughter was here sewing a new quilt I worked on trimming the charms down to a uniform size which turned out to be 4 3/4 inches square.
You can see my daughter's quilt on the wall behind the cutting table.
This is one of those times I really enjoyed using my rotating cutting mat.
When I was finished I set the box of trimmed charms near my machine so I can use them as leaders and enders. I haven't had much sewing time this week, but I have paired up a few of them already. That little stack will grow fast once I finally have some time to sew again!
I'm glad I started with a really simple goal this month. It's given me time to really think about the kind of scrap quilts I'd like to make and how I want to proceed with managing my scrap problem.
And here's a bit of eye candy for you--my Daughter's finished quilt top!
The pattern is called Brioche & Baguette from Modern Quilt Relish Patterns.
Isn't it just so bright and fun? She did a great job!
Happy Happy stitching, friends!
