I am very seldom throwing out scraps, as I love my fabrics very much, and always think I can use the smallest scraps for something.
I often feel I am moving these scraps around and around and around in the Quilt Corner, not really using them much - does it sound familiar to you too ?
Cutting the smaller scraps does take both time and patience......
As I am exercising patience these days, I thought I could make some hexie flowers, using English Paper Piecing, and since most of my scraps are on the smaller side, it is easier to cut by using a pencil and scissors than using a rotary cutter, to make the most use of the fabrics.
Once I got started I so enjoyed the process!
Hexagon flowers are nice as a grab-and-go project.
So far, not much of a dent in my scraps, but a lovely time is had, with coffee and an audio book on the side.
I love the look of how the colours and prints work together :-)
I think I have to sort through all my EPP templates one more time, to see if I can locate some more 3/4" paper templates.
