The last couple of years I've been making Bow Ties and Snowballs from the scraps in the 3.5 inch bin. Now that the Bow Tie quilt is finished and the Snowballs quilt is at flimsy stage it's time to decide what to do with the few scraps that are still left in the 3.5 inch bin. How about Broken Dishes blocks in complementary colors? Green is the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month and red is the complement.
I've also been making little three inch (finished) rails for a couple of years from the 1.5 inch scraps but decided to use 3.5 inch scraps now to make them since the 1.5 inch scraps are running low.
And the strip on the right side is what I make when the scrap ends up less than a 3.5 inch square.
