The one that made a light bulb go off in my head was from Michelle G:
The book Sunday Morning Quilts has some really good tiny scrap buster ideas. Amanda Jean who co-authored the book also has this tutorial on Sew Mama Sew. It's in kids section it is called the ticker tape mini quilt. see this link.
After checking it out, and seeing that they had sewn little scraps onto a background... it got me thinking how I could embellish that a bit further=) Here is what I came up with so far:
What do you think? I put it on a dark hand dyed grey background and thinking maybe a light pink or brown would be better.
Marti left a comment asking how we sort our scraps.. by colour or size etc.. so if you have a great tip, please let us know.
I have my Bestie Block #2 all cut out and partly sewn. Notice the dots. I think any fabric designer that puts dots in their fabric line is simply awesome!
Are you doing the Bestie QAL as well? If so, how far along are you? And if not, come on, join the fun. You can leave a pic of your work in progress on our Flickr group.
