Dinosaur Scraps into a Finish



What do I do with some bits of dinosaur prints?




I decided to cut them up into squares, pull a few coordinating prints from my stash and grab a couple yards of a background fabric.  Then I went to my go-to Wiggle Time pattern to make a small quilt.




For one of the dino prints I only had a few squares, so I just sprinkled them throughout the quilt.





I barely had just enough of the background solid - in fact, I made the top and bottom border a bit smaller than the pattern calls out so that I would have enough fabric.




I found a funky brown print for the backing and finished it off with the perfect striped fabric for the binding.    I was pleased to be able to use up these novelty scraps - I am sure someone will love all the fun prints in this quilt.


This is the second stack of novelty scraps I have turned into something useful.  It feels good to clean these hard-to-use scraps out of my scrap bins.  It will be nice to start out 2021 with my scrap bins purged of "unloved" fabrics.

Enjoy your weekend.  Stay well!

  3. What a cute finish! Your pattern would also lend itself to an “I Spy” quilt, especially if you didn’t have a lot of different novelty fabrics.

  7. Wiggle Time is such a great way to use up those smaller chunks. I really like the fabric with the dinos and trees. I'd be sad to use the last of it, but I'm a bit of a novelty nut :)

  10. I love this idea for using up bits and pieces of novelty fabric. I keep telling myself I won't start anything new.... but I do have a lot of left over bits of novelty fabric hanging around.
