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.
