I don't usually use scraps. I give them away to a local guild that makes charity quilts. I figure it's better than hoarding them.

Thanks

I use up scraps by making small blocks. Love the Shasta Daisy pattern!

Bree May 6, 2013 - 2:09 pm

I use up scraps with applique or paper piecing. Some of the tiniest pieces work in the intricate paper piecing patterns! I'm a huge paper piecing fan lately.

Charlene S May 6, 2013 - 2:12 pm

I cut my scraps into 2 1/2" by 4 1/2" bricks and sew 18 of them together to make 12 1/2" blocks. Each block has no repeat fabrics. Then I sash them with a color usually black or grey but sometimes I just sew the blocks together. These make wonderful baby quilts or charity quilts but a couple have become backs!

sheknowsallthemoves May 6, 2013 - 2:13 pm

I like to use scraps for applique – usually shirts for my kids, although applique doesn't use nearly enough scraps, I still have a ton!

Make a crazy patchwork something. Forgo the embroidery stitches and it won't take up too much time.

Lindsay(PACountryCrafts) May 6, 2013 - 2:28 pm

I don't use them up as well as I would like. I still save them, but my sister just accused me of being a hoarder. I tried justifying some of them and she said, "Yeah, that is what the people on the show say, too!"

String quilts!! That's the best way to use up scraps πŸ™‚

Nancy May 6, 2013 - 3:19 pm

My new favorite method to use scraps is to use them before they even get to the scrap bin. After I've finished a quilt I take all the scraps and make paper pieced scrappy stars. They are really fun to do and I end up with little to no scraps! Thanks for the giveaway.

Laura May 6, 2013 - 3:26 pm

The only thing I've used any scraps for is labels on my quilt. Needless to say they are accumulating faster than I am using them.

Donna May 6, 2013 - 3:30 pm

I have tons of scraps, too…I'm thinking of trying to make an old-fashioned spider web quilt like my grandma used to make.

Celtic Thistle May 6, 2013 - 3:32 pm

I hoard all my scraps for paper piecing those strange shaped pieces always come in handy!

Becky May 6, 2013 - 3:33 pm

I sort them by color, and store them in clear shoe boxes. Lately I've started to fold them or lay them flat as well. That way I don't have to iron them before I use them! Thanks for the give away!

Tracy May 6, 2013 - 3:36 pm

I am so loving scrappy quilts right now. I just made a baby one by making 16 patch blocks of all one color (Yellow, red, orange, purple, pink, blue, green, teals, and blacks), then sashing it all in white. Love how it turned out. Thanks for the chance to win!

I am a scrappy quilter. I sort them mostly by size, so someday (when I have time???) I can get a lot accomplished. Every Sunday after church, I take a handful of my the smallest, thinnest pieces and make a couple wonky log cabin-ish blocks, 8 inches square. I figure by next summer I will have enough blocks for a really scrappy quilt full of memories.

I use them up on monochromatic quilts or kitchen sink quilts. That way I don't worry so much about whether a scrap is the *right* shade of the color or is modern, repro, or somewhere in the middle. Made a few log cabin quilts – those will use up lots of different sized scraps.

I cut all of my scraps into the following size squares: 5", 3", and 2.5". Anything that can't get cut into those sizes, gets cut into strips for string quilts.

With these sizes, I'm able to just go and start piecing scrappy projects, which is just awesome.

I started cutting my scraps the way Joan Ford suggests in "Scrap Therapy: Cut the Scraps!" and use them (mostly) for donation quilts to Project Linus. Plus cutting down the scraps is a great activity for those nights when my brain cannot be trusted with anything fancy, but I still need to play with fabric.

I left you a message on FB. I usually use 2 1/2 squares for making pinwheels and then use them again to add a border around the pinwheel blocks. This is so neat because I had a charm pack of Simply Color and started making a baby quilt but wanted it a little larger and ran out of the charms. I just thought that maybe luck may be on my side and I could win another charm pack to finish the quilt. I just love the colors in this charm pack. Thank you for being a part of Sew Mama Sew giveway and giving me the chance to enter and maybe win. I so like the idea of finding a nice package in my mailbox.

I tend to make potholders – just stich your scraps together until you have a couple of pieces that are big enough and quilt them together with some insul-bright, add binding and voila.

Donna May 7, 2013 - 12:12 am

String blocks use up lots of scraps. Use them in quilts, runners, potholders, etc.

I still haven't made my first scrappy trip along, I think I'll probably make 10 or 20 to get rid of some of these scraps. Plus I'll probably have to buy a bunch of yardage to make sure everything coordinates…but that's my plan for using up my scraps!

One great way to use up scraps is to incorporate them back into the project at hand. Such as the back side of a quilt,inside of a bag,and so on. Some other ways is to make key fobs,fabric roses/flowers,fabric yoyos…

In terms of fabric scraps, I don't have many to speak of because I'm such a new quilter. But I have used some in the creation of coasters and potholders, and since they're by their nature small projects, the scraps work like a charm. I just have to have enough insulated batting on hand!

I don't have a machine that allows me to adjust my stitch widths etc, so I havn't tried paper piecing yet. In the meantime I've just been sewing them together to make it an obvious mishmash so that it does'nt have to be aligned properly! I am using this to make up a few extra filler blocks for a lap quilt I am working on at the moment! which is ironically made from leftover mishmash blocks from another quilt I made before I learnt how to make them properly!

Surprisingly the best thing for my scraps was to join a Bee. With a Bee or even a BOM (where you commit to scraps only) you are only doing a block so it is much easier to use scraps. Made a big difference for me. Or find a quilt pattern that uses scraps and commit to no purchase! Its fun!

When my scrap container start to overflow, I spend some time cutting the small stuff into either 2" squares or 1.5" strips. They store neatly and are ready at any moment for a scrap project. And the best part is, I throw away very little fabric.

Catherine May 7, 2013 - 5:00 pm

I don't have enough scraps to do anything amazing with them yet, but I'm looking forward to patchwork pillows.

I decided to use my scraps to make potholders and as a way to practice some free motion quilting.

Fawn

Jenny Bartoy May 7, 2013 - 5:19 pm

I use a lot of my scraps to create applique fiber art. They also come in super handy for making ornaments at Christmas time. When I just have too many scraps, I give a bunch to my kids (2 and 5 yo) and they have a blast with them, so creative! They do collages, use them as pretend toys, etc.

Thank you for the chance!

Danielle May 7, 2013 - 5:36 pm

I use my scraps for many things. I am big on paper piecing which is great for using them up, or making string blocks, my kids also like to play with them somewhat and when they are too small to use (or something that I wouldn't use) I pop it into a bag which is then donate to the local school for them to use in craft activities.

I end up with allot of long skinny scraps from tearing sheets into usable chunks, before cutting into fat quarters, strips or charm squares. I wrap and knit the strips around hangers. It's allot faster than crocheting over the hangers, and it looks pretty cool. I also cut my other scraps into strips and squares as I go along, which makes using them up easier.

I recently cut off all my hair so now I have been using my scraps to make little hair accessories.

I use scraps for little loyalty card holders, wallets, coin purses, etc to include in my etsy orders.

I use them to make flowers/bows and other accessories for my little girl. christina112358 at gmail dot com

I don't have too many scraps yet, but a rainbow scrappy quilt is on the cards. if they're too small for stitching into anything, i'll use them to stuff my little handmade dolls.

I'm with you when it comes to scraps. Mine are just making a mess at the moment. I'm thinking of organizing them and making a Sunday Morning rag quilt, saving some for a postage stamp quilt and just looking for some improv motivation from the mess of scraps. I look forward to seeing everyone's ideas!

Since I don't quilt, I don't have scraps. But if I did, I would probably use them for a little girl's doll quilt.
Thanks,
