No Waste Quilting (continued)

Some of the scraps shown in my previous post were sewn together to make new crumb fabric like this...


And then I used my GO cutter to cut out some crumb tumbler blocks from this new fabric...


So far, I've made 11 of these tumbler blocks...still have some scraps left, but this project will be put aside while I concentrate on a few other things that have deadlines. Maybe after the new year I'll figure out what to do with these.

Oh, and the pile of really small scraps that was on the left side of Friday's photo went into a bag that I will give to a fellow guild member who makes animal beds for the local animal shelter. The slivers of fabric and batting that most quilters throw away are used by her as stuffing for the beds.

Voila -- no waste quilting!

Oooh, great blocks! Isn't 'made' fabric fun to work with?
