Scraps on Monday

It's a scrappy
dump and sew kind of day!

Lay out the scraps
and
SEW!

Today I had to do a little
DIGGING before
I dumped the scraps on the table.



Here's my new scrap basket
and a little model to give you an idea of SIZE!!!

I didn't want to dump the WHOLE thing!

Well??
Do you think it's big enough???
Will I have enough to finish my baby quilt???
Ha ha!

:)

Each block begins with a 4" center.
Strips/scraps are sewn together
and cut into 3" wide segments
fitting them around the square
log cabin style.
Block is trimmed to 8 1/2".

(the transportation print is also cut into 4" squares
surrounded by muslin strips 3"...
trimmed to 8 1/2")

**note: my measurements
are 1/2" too big.
It's less stressful.
and fits into  my
HURRY SCURRY
kind of quilting style.
;)



I'm calling this my scrappy
TRANSPORTATION quilt!
