This week I decided to see if I could actually do something with this and clear out some of it.
I got on line and TildaWorld.com offers lots and lots of free patterns. After looking at them I discovered this pattern was a perfect solution to using up most of my scraps.
And a big surprise. I was able to get 300 of these 2.5 by 4.5 inch rectangles out of those scraps. Only goes to show that even little scraps can get used in a meaningful way. I've bagged them up into 10 sandwich bags of 30 each. I don't plan to start the Cozy Stripe Quilt yet, but when I do things should go really fast and they should make a really nice quilt somewhere in the 60 by 60 inch size with just a few long strip between rows.
For those fans of my daughter's pets. She earlier this past summer obtained 4 baby peacocks to keep Freddy her adult peacock company. Her hope was for a couple of ladies. Well things didn't work out so well. Only one is a female and the other three are males and already beginning to strut their stuff. Looks like Freddy will have lots of completion this coming summer.
And there she is. The boys all trying to get her attention.
Hi Donnalee! HAHA - I wonder if that female peacock is having her head turned by those young studs? She may just prefer an older man. Time will tell, I guess. I think that is just FAB that you were able to get so many rectangles out of your scraps. Now that is almost a free quilt! So fun. Thanks for linking up this week! ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
That's pretty amazing that you got so many rectangles out of that batch of scraps! It also looks like you found the perfect way to use them!ReplyDelete
Those scraps are going to make a lovely quilt top. And, since you normally get rid of your scraps, it's basically like a free quilt! Have fun with the peafowl.ReplyDelete
Way to go on using up all those scraps. Waste not, want not is my motto.ReplyDelete
Love the peacocks, but all those boys and only one gal? Wow.
Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥
You know I never know what to do with scraps and often have pieces left from binding that go in the trash. I really like that Cozy Stripe Quilt and would be perfect for those leftover strips. Thank you so much for sharing that. Now to find something to store them in and where.ReplyDelete
What a great pattern to use for your scraps!!! I'm going to keep that pattern in mind, too. And those peacocks are soo beautiful!ReplyDelete
I'm not sure what you mean by Tilda Scraps? I guess I will have to search that up! I have a feeling that I have plenty of them.ReplyDelete
Oh good luck !!! That will be a fun quilt!ReplyDelete
Hope those peacocks don't come to blows, pecks, or scratches, with only one pea hen to impress! They are certainly quite big birds, and so beautifulReplyDelete
Nice job cutting all those scraps up!! that is a really pretty pattern...hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete

As reported by Stanford Medical, It is indeed the ONLY reason this country's women get to live 10 years more and weigh an average of 42 pounds less than us.ReplyDelete
(And realistically, it really has NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret diet and absolutely EVERYTHING to do with "HOW" they eat.)
BTW, What I said is "HOW", not "WHAT"...
