Scrap Patrol - Prep Work

even scrap quilts require a lot of prep work
I've been trimming, cutting, and squaring scraps to make the Granny Square blocks, and the scrap piles don't seem to get any smaller. That bin in the upper right is filled with 2.5 inch strips leftover from other projects. The string strips in the upper left are waiting for additional strips to be made before becoming a project. Scrappy quilts require a lot of prep work!

  2. Preparation sometimes takes more time than the actual sewing.

  4. All that prep time...wow...takes a lot of patience. A scrappy quilt will take care of a portion of your leftovers, anyway!

  6. Love it! How DO you deal with the zig zag edges? You're using sashing, so then will you trim all the blocks? Looks like a great way to use up scraps!
