As you know I am taking part in The Purge. As a scrap quilter I try to use almost anything and everything, but sometimes you have to take stock and do some clearing out. I have passed on some fabrics to charity groups and friends, found and either used or passed on UFO's and blocks.
I have been using up some strips and scraps to make Bonnie Hunter's "Sister" blocks - This pile added to the other pile - I have 20 made now.
And the scraps left from the Triangle QAL made for some cute Dresden Plates which will be used for table runners.
Of course I want to use what is on those shelves for background, that is an auditioning process right now.
I've even been tackling that large tote of batting scraps. I found two pieces that will work perfect for my Dresden runners. I used some (shred/cut/diced/mixed with left over fiberfill) to stuff a pillow. Four large pieces were joined together for a wallhanging. And I noticed my furry helpers needed a new cat nip toy. Just a small rectangle folded in half, I zig zag two sides and fill with nip - zig zag that final seam.
And I keep all my selvedges as I work a project so I can list what fabrics I used. I use a lot of different types of fabrics from many different companies, so I get quite an interesting pile. I don't use them - just tuck them in a large zip lock baggy to be able to pass them on. I had a recent give away open for these - and once that bag is empty, of course I will start filling it back up for a future share.
The winner of this pile:
Ohhhh, I do love selvedges.... I'm thinking some pin cushions for Christmas. Thanks so much!
