* Scrap Reduction Ideas *

Scrappy Hexies

These Scrappy Hexie Blocks measure 6 1/2 inches on a side. I am considering finishing the quilt with yellow sashing or a gray-blue similar to what they are laid out on. What do you think? There will be some negative space and a border of which ever one I choose.

Now for all the great suggestions on taming the scrap pile:

Lots of you make charity quilts with your scraps.

Rhonda sorts her scraps into large plastic totes by theme, then when she wants to make a charity quilt she pulls out the themed tote that fits the current need.

Kathy cuts scraps into 2 inch and 2 1/2 inch squares, then sews then into 4 patches as she is chain piecing. When she gets a stack of them done she stitches up a quilt top.

Anne and Eileen toss them into a big bag to sort later. 🙂

Deb mentioned Bonnie Hunter and her scrap projects. Google Bonnie Hunter and you will find hundreds of scrap projects.

Sherry stitches her scraps into charity quilts.

Share any additional Scrap Reduction Project ideas in the comments. Scraps happen so you can never have to many scrappy project suggestions.

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text
    in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d
    post to let you know. The layout look great though!
    Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers

    Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options
    for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole
    my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!
