I am trying to tame the scraps by spending a little time each week cutting them into useable sizes. I throw scraps into bins according to the size I want to cut them. And then cut them all at once with an accuquilt studio. I decided to work on the 2 1/2 inch bin.
Time to save those little treasures...
I have a bunch of strips that I was able to put into the 2 1/2 inch strip drawer. yay! And the little bucket was emptied - double yay! Now my drawers of 2 1/2 inch strips is really, really full. I haven't been using them as I should, since I have been on a finishing schedule. ( not that a few projects haven't magically started themselves). It is time to make a few decisions about the strips before they explode.
Speaking of treasures, a quick stop at the rescue mission thrift stop, and I came home with this sweet vintage top. It was hand pieced and hand appliqued. It was in great shape. Many of the colors are 20s fabric.
And I am always worried that it might be reproduction fabric tricking me into believing it is vintage, but, there were some fabrics that were too ugly to be reproduced lol.
I know I am supposed to be downsizing, but I had to bring it home.
