I seem to have lost part of my week! I still haven’t completely unpacked from last weekend and it is almost time to pack for my next trip to see Baby L. But I have gotten a wee bit of sewing in. A while back, I bought a Moda Scrap pack. I always wanted to see what they were like. I wish I had taken some pictures before I started working with it but you can Google it to see for yourself.
Basically, they are scrap strips left over from their cutting of precuts. You get strips with a pinked edge and a selvedge edge. They are not uniform in width. I think I had about 30 strips in my pack ranging from 2-4″ in width and about 30″ long. I wanted to use it all up in one project with as little waste as possible. So I sewed strips together in sets of three and then cut 6″ squares from the strip sets with my die cutter. I ended up with a rather wonky sort of a rail fence design.
I used the scraps from my scraps to piece a few blocks and ended up with a 36″ x 42″ top. I love the colors and fabrics but can’t say I am in love with the top. Perhaps I will like it better when I am done quilting it.
