I have this thing about scraps. I can't toss 'em. Until they are less than 1½" square, they are stashed by colour into a fabulous 6-drawer plastic organizer I found at Canadian Tire.
The problem with this system is the drawers get full. A couple years ago I started sewing those scraps together by colour and cutting them in to 6½ squares because that's the ruler I had available at the time.
I also used blocks that I had made out of curiosity and practice.
This quilt was a UFO for a long time until I decided how to sew them together. Then the call came in June - what can you do for us by September? This was one of three. I wish I took a better picture of the finished product.
The quilt was unveiled in a hospital room in Edmonton. Everyone was pleased. *whew*
I should start a new scrap quilt. I feel that this one was a success!
Lessons Learned: I need to make note of the thickness of this fill. It was too thick - although it made for a cozy quilt, it was difficult to put through the sewing machine.
