Browns Three Inch Spools.
I now have 108 brown spools. I don't think any of the fabrics are repeats, but then again...I've been making them as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for three years so who knows.
When I was cutting my 1.5 inch scraps for the blocks I guess I didn't notice there was not enough of a few fabrics for all four 1.5 inch corners. So, I substituted. I guess those spools are definitely unique.
And while I was cutting for those little spools I remembered I had a pile of brown postage stamp blocks so I cut scraps for three more little blocks. I have no clue why I decided on an unusual 49 patch (finishes at 7 inches). When I made the first one I must have only had 49 postage stamps. Now I need to find the rest of the pile. I want to make an all brown/cream big sized postage stamp quilt someday. It will be "Plain Brown Wrapper."
And while I was sewing up those postage stamps I remembered I haven't finished my postage stamp girls from last year. They need a "frame" around them. And I needed to check my postage stamp collection to see if I had enough cut for frames before I go using up all the 1.5 inch scraps on a spider web quilt.
So, that lead to all postage stamp girls now framed and ready for assembly into a top which may be very soon! (I hope).
Join us each ScrapHappy Saturday. Show us what you do with those scraps.
