I have been busy sewing economy blocks... and more economy blocks... I shared with you a few posts ago how I got sucked in to the Economy Block Along that has been going around on blogs, Instagram, and flickr. I tried to resist this new movement, but I couldn't. I love scrappy quilts and this one was calling my name.
Here are some progress pics...
I love these with the roses, lime, blue, teal, and pink.
I am crazy about these red and green and teal blocks. I love the plaid and decided I need to make more with the plaid.
Here are a few blocks with Aneela Hoey fabrics.
Accumulating pretty scraps... for the trash bin. I just like to see them all together. I used Rita's tutorial (Red Pepper Quilts) which instructs you to make the blocks a little larger and trim to the accurate size.
This is the tip of the iceberg. I am about a quarter of the way there, but I can't wait to see how it turns out.
I used a lot of my scraps for the blocks, but there are so many scraps left in my scrap bin. I noticed that many of my scraps were too small to use, which has me thinking... maybe I am saving pieces that are too small to save.
I would love for you to share your thoughts on this. Do you save scraps larger than a certain size or do you save all scraps no matter how small?
Please share! I think I need to go back and clean out my scrap bin...
