More on scrap management

Another post about scrap management.  I just couldn't resist.

When my scraps are really small, I've been cutting them into 1.5" postage stamps.  Some of those became a small doll quilt last winter. But no pictures exist because it went home to Texas the very same day with my niece's 5 year old granddaughter. She even helped me sew them together.

Now I've also been cutting hexies out of my little scraps.  I even got a few out of the trimmings from my string blocks.  The ruler makes cutting these so easy - even the 1" sized ones.  Hexies are a good little hand work project while watching TV at night.
