Organizing Scraps

Today I'm feeling ambitious. I've decided to cut most of my scraps, shown in the large bin, into 2-1/2" squares as shown in the little bin. Any large pieces I will keep as is. I might even cut some scraps into 2-1/2" x 4-1/2" rectangles. After I finish the job I'm sure I'll feel a bit more organized. Now all I have to do is decide how to use the squares creatively. If you have any ideas please share them with me and my friends. If I do anything with them I'll be sure to post a picture.
Thanks for visiting.

Free Quilt Pattern. Scrap Buster Country Placemat

Here's a great way to use up your stash of scraps. Be warned, this can be addictive. If applique is not for you why not fussy cut a novelty print for the center. It's fun to chose colors to fit your decor. Since this is a scrappy placemat they don't have to match when making sets. Would love to see a picture of your finished placemat. You can share it with me at  I promise not to share your info.

Happy quilting,
