Let's Bind It!
I hope the scrap patterns we post in the newsletter are of use to you. As a quilter, I know how scraps tend to build up, and I know how hard it is to part with them. I can't throw away even the smallest of pieces.
I do feel very proud of the quilts I have created with only the bits and pieces I collected through the years. I am hooked on string quilts, though the way I do them isn't truly scrappy. I tend to blend my colors, and fortunately, I have enough to do that.
