Making It Useful

turning scraps into useable squares
A rotary cutter and various rulers turned the stack of rescued scraps in last week's post, into some useable squares.

40 x 44 inch baby quilt 
Eighty-four squares (4.5 inch) and eight (2.5 inch) squares were set aside for this baby quilt. The pale gray border strips came from my stash.

remaining stacks of various sized squares and components
6.5", 5", 4.5", 3.5", and 2.5" squares and strips
The remaining scraps were added to bins with other fabrics cut to size. They will be used in future projects.  Not bad for a $2.00 investment.


  1. The baby quilt turned out great! So cheerful and sunny looking. Well done!

  2. Impressive number of squares from that little investment. Cute quilt top too!

  5. Wow! Oh I love that baby quilt and look at all of the additional squares you still have. What a great investment you made.
