Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny
Just a quick check in to showcase some of my process and insane decision making. You see, I’m making this Road to
Tennessee (Location TBD) quilt, and as I was cutting the corners off each of the two hundred odd blocks, Mr. Sparkles mentioned how that was such a waste of fabric. Hmm, I think you’re on to something there, Mr. Sparkles. Then this morning, I was reading about Rachel’s (at Stitched In Color) adventures with her scraps and triangles, and again thought, I shouldn’t let all those bits go to waste.
So I sewed a few of the corners into hourglass blocks and viola, no fabric waste! It’ll be a lot of itsy bitsy teeny weeny Vintage Modern polka dot bikini style sewing, but totally worth it. I’m not really interested in squaring up those already small blocks (they measure about 1.5″ unfinished) so will probably just do some fun improv with them and see what happens. I mean, yesterday they were bound for the bin, so today, it’s all just bonus!
