Today I am happy to report that I have the quilt top finished.  If you saw the post before this, you would know that my sister and I are making the same quilt from the same wonderful fabrics from Inchworm Fabrics.

We are using the Quick Curved ruler, here are the scraps from the project.

I asked my sister what she did with her scraps.  She said she threw her away.  For some reason I just could not do it.  So....I thought...

and thought....

and thought.

This is what I came up with.

              I sewed two half moons together.  Then got out my Orange Peel Accuquilt Go die.

Before and after the cut.  Looks so nice and neat.

Even less scraps.

I decided to blanket stitch them with Pink Aurifil Thread, umm ummm good.

Ok, I know what you are thinking, one minute I am overwhelmed and the next I am starting another project.

Let the record show that I just needed focus and writing it down helped me do that.  When I have things I need to do if I can get a direction I do nothing.

Then...I just couldn't let these scraps go to waste and had to do something with them or they would be just that, scraps to be thrown away later.

Are my excuses any good?

I am going to set up my Pafff  so I can quilt the Charity Quilt....and when I get tired of that will work on some Orange peels. 

Sounds like a plan.

Oooh, I like what you did with the scraps! Your plan sounds good - and your excuses are great - LOL - ;))

Ha ha... I am the same way. I will have too many irons in the fire - yet I will still start another project.

Oh, your rationale is just fine! We pay a lot of money for this fabric, don't we? Throwing away pieces that are big enough to use is never a bad thing!

I'm not sure where you're getting your information, but good topic.
I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.

Thanks for excellent information I was looking for this information for my mission.

Very nice. I have such a card time throwing away bits that are usable too.

Yes, Yeah you! I love using my scraps. You are smart to use those pieces from the trash and make something beautiful with them. Way to go!
