Every once in a while, I find myself with a large amount of scraps in a specific colors. The fastest and easiest way of busting these scraps that I have found is to sew up a single color string quilt.
One of the great things about these monochromatic quilts is you can really hide some really old scraps!
To make the sewing as mindless as possible, I do sew the strips onto a fabric foundation. I can then just sew on the strips using the Leaders/Enders method as I work on other projects.
And before you know it, the scrap bin is empty and you have yourself a twin size quilt!
I even had a backing on hand that worked perfectly.
So this makes finish number six so far for 2014! I had included this quilt as part of my goals for both the 2014 Finish-A-Long with Katie over at The Littlest Thistle and the 2014 UFO and NewFO project over at Joanie's Trendy Quilts. Let the finishing trend continue!
I will be sharing this with the following linky parties. Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation and Really Random Thursday at Live A Colorful Life, Let's Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts, and WIP Wednesday with Freshly Pieced. Be sure and check out these blogs for even more quilty inspiration.
