Scraps scraps

What to cut? I just don’t know.

Let’s see, we need 3.5 x 1.5 for CC as well as a ton of 1.5 squares. No more than 100 of each color.

Then I really should have on hand some quilts to give away. I have a girl one ready and the boy one is a flimsy, so that’s covered. I think a few lap ones and a few full ones would be good.

I like the idea of a Sudoku quilt and I know my MIL would like a quilt from me, but I’m pretty sure my scraps will not yield me 9 squares per fabric in the size I need. So there went that idea. I also really like the bargello, but I would love to do them where the strips are the same in each panel. Alas, that will be a stash cutting item, not a scrap one.

I really like Bonnie’s Boxy Stars, so maybe I should just cut a bunch of 2.5 strips. Since the rectangles are really pretty small (2.5 square and 2.5 x 4.5 rectangle), I think I could get a fair amount of them out of the scrap bag.

So let’s try that.

100 – 1.5 squares
100 – 1.5 x 3.5 bricks
100 pairs of 2.5 squares and 2.5 x 4.5 bricks
