I generate a lot of scraps. A lot of LITTLE scraps.
Trying to keep them under control, I like to make crumb blocks. Let there be no mistake, this harvest basket is NOT all encompassing of my little scraps. I just work a handful in at a time. I think this keeps the blocks from getting boring & repeating fabrics. I want a fabric explosion in my blocks.
I even take all the cut offs from making binding & piece them with other fabrics from other bindings making nice scrappy squares (right side of basket above).
This go round, I am cutting them 4.5” I don’t know exactly what I am going to do with them yet, but that will come to me. One day. My thought is that I would insert them into a traditional block where a 4.5” square is used. We’ll see.
Do you keep (and USE) your tidbits?
