Scraps,Scraps

When you can't buy new fabric but you still want to do some quilting you have to improvise.
Using my small bits of leftover fabric is the solution I found since my fabric diet began.
I searched for some fabric from my Farmer's Wife Sampler and cut it into small pieces


The little squares are 1'5".
With them I made some nine patch and snow balls, I  want to make the " Short and Sweet " table topper, which is a Kim Diehl's pattern

This is what I've achieved so far, next week-end I intend to make some more.

that is such a pretty way to use up your 'scraps'.... I think scrappy quilts are my favourite...
