Oh Scrap! : Something New

 A few weeks back, I shared that a friend of mine gifted me two large bags of scraps.  I tried to get them quickly sorted and put away so I could focus on other things.  But I did get sucked in by a couple scrap piles and started some new quilts.


One of the scraps I started to play with was this colorful fabric with some flavors written on it.  There were a number of larger scrap pieces - I am thinking they were leftover from some bag making.


I decided it needed to be made into these fun ice cream cone blocks.  
Or maybe they are snow cones.

I will be using the same gray dotted fabric from my stash for all of the blocks.  The ice cream scoops will all come from my scrap bins.

And this is why I just can't throw any unloved scraps away.  This (blech) brown fabric makes the perfect chocolate chip cone!

I made up the block using my Tri-Recs Tool.  The cone is 6.5" wide.  Then I added a 4.5" x 6.5" rectangle with two flip corners for the scoop.

I will probably have to add some background fabric to the sides of the blocks but until I decided where I am going with these, I will wait.

oh...and I see in the photos my rotary blade isn't closed.  Bad Cynthia!

  10. Yes, save all scraps. It seems their day will come and yours is so perfect. I also love those nifty tools you used, Cynthia.

  11. This is a really cute project especially in these very hot days, who doesn't love icecream? We fine our students for not closing blades (I am very conscious of that having been cut badly from an open blade) - a quarter a blade and that money goes into a necessary item for a class project.

  17. An ice cream cone sounds fabulous now... not happening in the middle of the night! But yours look very cute and I bet they'd be scrumptious! I find I leave my blade open more and more these days. I used to be very good about closing it. Must think about it when I finish cutting! Enjoy your week.
