I found these two little bow tie blocks when I was digging around in a bin. I'm pretty sure that Barb sent them with the bow tie swap last fall. They are so cute that I decided to make a doll quilt using them and more that I'm making. The will measure 2" finished.
I'm also making some pink and brown HST doll quilts. The HST blocks on top finish at 1 1/2" and the HST blocks on the lower quilt finish at 1 1/4" Once I got started, I just couldn't stop!
Several months ago a friend from my quilt guild asked us to collect the scraps we get from trimming blocks because she uses them to make doggie beds for a shelter. So I decided to start saving them. I've been doing it since around Christmas and I forgot to take them to our last meeting.
This bag is almost totally full of trimmings. I save just about everything that's usable and these are less than 1".
I decided to weigh the bag and it weighs 1 lb. 9 1/2 oz! One yard of fabric weighs about 6 oz. and costs about $11.
That means that this bag of scraps is worth about $46.75! Yikes!! I'm glad that someone will be able to use the scraps instead of just throwing them away! Do any of you save these and what do you do with them?
