This week I worked with my orange 2 inch scraps.
I made these Wedding Ring (aka Single Wedding Ring or Odd Scraps Patchwork) blocks that finish at 7.5 inches. I started making these blocks last year.
I also started making these Sixteen Patch blocks last year. They finish at 6 inches.
I've been making these little Wonky Stars off and on over the years. They finish at 4.5 inches.
I use little waste triangles for the star points.
Then I made a few Little Houses from my 2 inch scraps. These finish at 3 inches.
Before I made the latest orange batch of houses I had 351 out of a target of 540 houses.
Then I was in Little House making mode and felt the urge to cut some 2 inch strips of 30s reproduction fabrics with little characters so I could make more houses. Now I have 399 out of a target of 540 Little Houses. And I added some scraps left over from making these houses to the 2 inch scrap bin.
But I didn't throw the orange scraps to the 2 inch scrap bin. Instead I made those into more Wedding Ring blocks and a Sixteen Patch.
Then I cut the remaining orange 2 inch scraps into 2 inch squares and if there wasn't enough for a square it was sewn into a strip for use in a Chinese Coin quilt at year end.
And next week I hope to show blocks made with my 2.5 inch scraps.
