Time And Fabric On Your Hands?

If you’re like me, you save even the tiniest scraps of fabric whenever you make something. When I was a little girl, I would raid the trash can in my mom’s sewing room and take out little bits of fabric after she had cut something out. Sometimes I would use it to make something for a doll, but sometimes I would just keep the scrap in a box because I liked it. Anyway, the point is, I still can’t bring myself to throw scraps away, so they sit around taking up a ton of space, saved for the possible but unlikely event that I would ever need them for something.

Then I stumbled on this link to an online tutorial for making “scrappy cabin” pattern quilts. You can use your tiniest pieces on this project if you are so inclined. Best of all, you can use your machine, so maybe it wouldn’t be as time consuming as it appears. The tutorial is really interesting to click through, even if you don’t intend to try the project. It made me wonder where they found those great scraps? Clearly they have sources beyond Jo-Ann’s!
