scrap stash

I have a bit of a scrap problem I'm afraid. You see, I don't throw out any fabric even if it is to small to be very useful for anything, I always think I can find a use for it. Maybe that is why I also have a growing collection of assorted pieces of cardboard..... Anyways, I decided it was time to actually find a use for all those little scraps. I love the look of scrap quilts so without a real plan in mind I started cutting all my scraps into 2.5"x2.5" squares and it turns out I had enough for 475 of them! If I wanted to start cutting into my 'medium' sized scrap pile I would have a whole lot more. I have a problem, yes I know!

So, here it is folks, the beginning of my 'postage stamp quilt'. Stay tuned for further progress!


  1. That is quite a pile of squares. Have fun sewing!!! I am organizing my fabric today and looking at a new quilting magazine

  2. Oh my goodness that's a ton of scraps! I can't wait to see how this turns out, it sounds like it will be awesome!!


thank you so much for leaving me a little note! i appreciate each and every comment :)
