In my big push to use up scraps I have one quilt top finished. For the one above I cut into only two pieces of yardage, the gray in some of the circles and the orange border.

Since I didn't have many scrap pieces large enough for the circles I changed to strips to make these squares. I made long strips with various fabrics and cut them into triangles which I then sewed together. They end up as 12 inch squares so this will be a fairly large quilt. I'm wondering if I should sash them with black, white or a color...

The strange thing is, the scrap boxes are just as full as ever. Can anyone explain that? I wish my bank account would act that way.

Love them. A great way to use up those bits that keep multiplying.
