Fabric Scraps… What To Do With Them?



What is this?  It is about a gazillion strips of fabric, each about       1-2” x 7”.  Some were cut with the rotary cutter, some were torn, just any way to get strips.  They are tied around about 14 ft. of jute rope with a simple knot and then scootched closely together.  HMMM. my spell-check does not like the word “scootched”.  It’s probably NOT a real word, but you all KNOW what I am talking about, don’t you?


Very simple to do… it just SEEMS to take forever, especially when you need 2 of them.  Why? 


Check out the new window toppers for the 2 HUGE windows in my quilting room.  The picture really doesn’t do it justice… poor photo lighting.  The colors are really neat, and it makes me smile when I walk in there.  What a great way to use up those small strips in your scrap bag!  Of course you COULD make a string quilt, but I have made enough of those… and who wants to use 1” pieces for a string quilt?   It would take F-O-R-E-V-E-R!!


Confession:  I forgot to trim back my rose bushes in February.

Result:  They are already LOADED with beautiful blooms!   And they smell really yummy, too.
