I go to 2 of the same retreats as my friend Billie. At each retreat, she gifts me with a grocery bag or 2 or 3 of her scraps. I do love scraps. Billie is getting ready to move and needs to sort stuff and make decisions. Lucky me! This year she gifted me 3 bags. I was super efficient and instead of just putting the bags in the bin of scraps until I am ready to dig into them, I spent one morning's knee icing time sorting scraps-on my lap! There were oodles of strips of all sizes. Oodles I tell you!!
There were some wedge pieces, some nice sized chunks and very few crumbs. So after looking at the wedges, I started to play and came up with 2 mug rugs. I am finally able to sew a little so play time began! I still have to put binding on the second one but that won't take long. I had fun quilting with decorative stitches and fun thread. These will be fun for the kids when we have our snacks or picnics out on the deck. I'm glad I didn't find a home in my scrap bins for theses pieces. Thank you again Billie!!
I'm headed over to see what others are doing at Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.
