My mission is to clear all the odd scraps from previous quilts out of my sewing room by the end of the year. The box of scraps from Scrappy Spools is my first project.
Ironically, Scrappy Spools was also made from scraps of another quilt - Duluth Stars. Nearly all of the scraps from Scrappy Spools are triangles, trimmed off of a four-patch to make the spools. I've been picking the remaining stitches out of these trimmings, ironing the triangles (or near triangles), and sorting them by color.
I am going to sew these triangles on a strip of solid fabric (a milk-chocolate brown) and eventually make pinwheels for a lap quilt. Now that they have been picked and pressed, the scraps are ready to be turned into something useful.
