You may remember about six months ago, I went to my Mom’s house and relieved her of some of her fabric stash. When I was there, she also gave me a ziplock bag full of tiny vintage scraps:
I have no idea of the age of the fabrics and my Mom wasn’t sure who cut them up, they could have been her grandmother’s but she wasn’t sure. Some of them are clearly fussy cut, there are different fabric types and varying amounts of each. For example, there are a TON of the white flower with the yellow/orange background, but I’m pretty sure the purple flower below it is the only scrap from that fabric.
The problem is that they were clearly hand cut and not very accurate. They are all around 2″ square but some are bigger, some smaller. It would be a shame to toss them just because of that, so I’ve been thinking of re-cutting them all to be 1.5″ square to use in a project.
Maybe I could use them as cornerstone pieces in a scrappy hourglass quilt…

What do you think? What would you do with these scraps if you had your way with them?
They are all brilliant! I like the last one. The hourglass quilt looks like a ton of work!
It does, doesn’t it? :wise:
