Scrap Attack: A quilt only a mother could love.
Seems like 2012 is the year of the scrap! Scrappy projects are popping up all over. I'm participating in Rachel's Scrap Attack, and I decided to face my bulging bin of scraps head-on.
I admit--there were times during this process when I wasn't sure if I was attacking the scraps or they were attacking me. But I persevered and sorted my scraps. I threw away any that were too small to be useful.
I pulled out any larger pieces. They belong with the rest of my fabric where I can find them.
I took any tumbler-size scraps and cranked them through my Go Baby, and I ended up with 456 tumblers.
I put the tumblers in a paper bag, shook them up, and pulled out random pairs and sewed them together. I ended up with this quilt top, which measures about 54 x 54 inches.
It was fun to see all of these long-lost bits of fabric! Kind of a trip down quilty memory lane. It's definitely a loud and crazy quilt top...but I kind of love it.
