My scrap bins have been getting a little out of control of late. I'm ashamed to to say I am a hoarder in the scrap department (*hangs head in shame*), but I just can't throw away pretty things no matter how small they are. So, I've been trying to make heads or tails of them since Christmas break.
The easiest way for me to do that is to dump them on the floor and make some slabs ala Sunday Morning Quilts. For me it's a happy mindless exercise that yields beautiful results. So after spending a couple days with an Edward Scissorhands sized mess I managed to make some pretties.
I chose to make "blocks" rather than slabs but the process is the same. Easy and awesome!
My blocks are 15" so that when it comes time to put them together I'll only need 20 or so to make a nice sized throw. Bigger blocks = less work, right?
With pink and turquoise cleaned out, I've only got 7 more colors to go. WooHoo!
In a fit of scrap hoarding mania, I also decided to make strips for these scrappy x blocks. I've had them on my wish list for.ever! Both projects will probably be ongoing throughout the year but I'm determined to empty all my bins this year!
What about you? Do you have an over abundance of scraps, or a great scrap project you want to share?
