Scrap Project...

A while back Kim and I decided to do a project made completely out of scraps. There's something really satisfying about using up a bunch of small pieces of fabric, that you probably could've just thrown away, to make a completed project. So...Kim upended her scrap bin and I dug out mine and we got to work. We cut all the scraps into small squares and proceeded to sew a ton of triangles! It was a nit-picky kind of project but a great one to do over a cup of coffee and visit with a friend. In the end I ended up going with pinwheels and made this square table topper. It will look great on my table! It turned out to be quite large. The only part of the project that wasn't scraps were the borders. Kim was kind enough to stipple it for me to give it that antique look. I'm so happy with how it turned out.... I did a rough calculation and there's well over 200 pieces of fabric in this project!


Thanks for leaving me a comment!
