Scrap management is topic of discussion for quilters. The smallest scrap I keep is 1.5 inch square. Some keep smaller and create wonderful pieces with these micro scraps. I just can’t fathom keeping them smaller than 1.5 inch square.
A request for a baby girl quilt came in recently. The customer asked for girly after I had found my forgotten stash of Amy Butler Cameo and some other scraps. These will do the job. However, they are 1.5 inch square scraps. Where do I go with these?
Right now, I’m not entirely sure what the overall design will end up being. The fabric and some coordinating solids will guide me in this process. Do you remember this quilt? As I’m designing I keep seeing something like this.
Hello Luscious Baby Girl Quilt used 2.5 inch squares as the center of the blocks. My Amy Butler Cameo scraps seem so tiny in comparison, see below.
Hoping this weekend to have some time to figure out the design. For now I have a little stack of squares ready for something great. I’m open to feedback and ideas too.
