Jots, iotas, smidgens, whits, crumbs and orts...no matter what you call them they are itty bits of fabric. I want to concentrate on using them this year. I have some sorted by color; some sorted into cool and warm, black and white. Some are not sorted. The ones that are sorted by color I hope to use in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month to make a few blocks.
What I call crumbs are very small and usually irregular shaped scraps. I use those in some type of crumb block. The ones that are a little bigger and with straight edges are also crumbs but I use those in some sort of slab block.
For crumb blocks I tried out some flower blocks that finish at 8 inches. I think I will continue with these next year. I used an old Block Lotto pattern called Violets to make the blocks.
By the end of 2022 I hope to have a colorful garden of flowers.
I'm thinking I make a couple more blocks with 4.5 inch crumb squares but have not finalized plans. More on that later.
In 2020 I made a couple 12 inch Hourglass blocks from crumbs and a solid in a complementary color. I was going to make a lot more for a donation quilt but didn't have many solids so I could continue on. I think I may have a few solids or tone on tones to use now so hope to make more of these in 2022. And I hope I can find where I put these two.
And I mentioned slabs earlier in this post. In 2019 I finished a slab quilt with heart I called Heartfelt. Now I think I will make another in 2022.
In November I blogged about some of my other Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) plans for 2022. Now I will add the above to the list.
