We're going to be digging into those scrap bins and putting those precious pieces you've been hanging on to, to use. It's about time, right?!
So, first things first: go sort those scraps! Over the next week, you're going to have sneak peeks into scrap organization from a slew of talented quilting bloggers. Take notes, pin ideas, just get busy.
You are going to need your scraps sorted by color.
What kind of scraps get to play? Well, anything 2" x 2" and larger. We'll be using strips of fabric in widths 1.5" - 2".
What are we making? Monochromatic Improv Log Cabins! The tutorial is coming your way October 9.
Ready to sew? Good! The QAL kicks off next Tuesday, October 9 with giveaways, special sales, discounts and all the details to get you started.
