Something out of Nothing!

Anyone who knows me knows I love using scraps and keep even the smallest pieces!

I’ve even influenced some of my students in this vein, some of whom are now known as the class ‘bin-hoakers!’ (they take the fabric scraps out of the bin at the end of class!).

My friend’s ‘pink-loving’ daughter has a birthday next week, so I made her journal cover out of lots of pink scraps!

If you haven’t tried improv piecing, give it a whirl!  It’s quick, easy and so satisfying as you see random scraps of fabric morph into a cohesive piece of quilting.

The lovely thing about using scraps is they bring back memories from past projects, or remind me of someone who donated their unwanted scraps to me.

So there we have it – something out of nothing!

I hope you’ve had a productive weekend!
