i'm over it

i'm over taking these 1" scraps and using them for things. i have definitely gotten my moneys worth with this fabric!!! i used these 1" scraps to make a coaster for work. it's bright and fun and if i'm having a bad day all i have to do is look at it and think sunshine and outside. :) this coaster finished about 5" squared. i though binding would be fun so i made it a little bigger. i could use a bowl on it also. :) the squares end up being a 1/2". so cute!!! but not so great to pin and work with. plus when i straight line quilted it it pulled so it's a bit wonky. oh well!!


i just used the orange polka dot on the back and called it a day and am now done with those scraps. they are in the garbage!! i've got other fabrics to wear into the ground. :) hope you have a FABULOUS day!!

  4. Love your coaster, but I hear you, sister! I am not one to keep tiny scraps! I have too much of a stash to cut into to worry about little scraps! : )

  5. I like it!! I got a mug rug in a swap made with the 1" squares and it is just fascinating to look at!! I'm sure yours will brighten your day at work...
