After finishing a big project and preparing classes for the next quarter, I took a little break and used some of the scraps from the unsorted pile. This is where scraps go before I cut them into the standard sizes I use for storage.
Cheryl Arkison, who blogs at Dining Room Empire, calls this type of block a slab. Of course the idea of joining scraps as you find them has been used by many people in various ways. I really enjoy making them in a single color, so I made a few when I had a minute.
Of course, this didn’t make a dent in the scrap pile, but it was fun! Has anybody out there found a way to make a real dent in the scrap pile? It seems to me to grow and grow, with no decrease in size no matter how many scrap quilts I make!
