I cut 5", 4.5", and 2.5" squares. I also was setting aside 2.5 inch strips that were at least 13" long for a scrappy trip quilt. I am making a 10" block instead of a 12". I checked my scrap quilt pinterest board to make sure I didn't miss any size I needed for a quilt. The 5" can be used like a charm pack or cut into 4 - 2.5" squares. The 4.5" match up with a 4 patch of the 2.5" squares. And the strips are just handy, they make rail fence blocks and other rectangular pieced blocks. What size scraps do you cut and what do you make with them? I'm looking for more ideas!
Below is the second batch. I haven't gotten too far through this one yet. These are the backup scraps for my 2.5 inch rainbow colored quilt that I want to do. Or maybe I could use some for the blue, green and orange scrappy quilt. There's just too many quilts to choose from!
I just had to show you my young quilting club hard at work! I started too late on the older ones, but you should see these cuties work on their quilt!
Peter is my seam ripper. He actually does this for me when I have left over pieces from a quilt back. Josie is the quilt designer. She has her own tub of scraps to use.
And here is Emma trying to get some of her own fabric! Josie had started on the floor, but had to pick up and move to the design wall to keep Emma from destroying her quilt design.
