Have I ever told you how much I love little pieces of scrap fabric? To me it is not rubbish waiting to be thrown out, but a small, wonderful piece of possibility. Also remember, your scraps cost the same as your stash. With that said, I am always looking for ways to turn those scraps into something wonderful and useful.
My darling daughter gave me "Quilt Savvy" for my birthday a few years ago. What I love about this book is that the patterns lend themselves to scrap quilts. Enter, all those little beauties that I stash away.
I loved the look of this wonderful scrappy tumbler quilt. The little thimble is tiny and that suits me well too. I love tiny!!!! (It's a mental condition which creates a lot of work for oneself! Ha Ha) Anyway, I have been cutting tumblers and slowly working on this quilt - on and (more) off - for about three years now. I recently pulled it out and have added quiet a few rows to it.
I trace the tumblers onto little scrap pieces of fabric and then stack them up to cut out when my son skypes us from college. This way we can settle into a good chat and my hands are busy too!
