Thanks, Cat Lady and Janet!!!  Love using HST's, but this size will be the smallest!!

It is beautiful Lynne.

Lynne, using 1" finished HSTs from previous projects definitely makes you a scrap saver! Your quilt turned out lovely.

I've been working on this for awhile.  Set it aside, when I wasn't happy how the trunk was going.  Thanks to what we're going through right now, its a finished top.

The HST's were cut from a previous project and saved.  They finish at 1 inch, and the block finishes at 7 inches.  I used scraps from my  CW stash to do the setting triangles, and borders.  The white is muslin, also left over from previous projects, and its not as white as the picture shows. 

Its lap size,, but will go perfectly on a wall, too.

Great job Lynne.

Lisa F. There is a discussion in the discussion forum above that discusses sorting scraps.  Check it out, it has lots of information that may help you.

Love it Lynne.

This quilt top was made with 5 inch charm squares, I was collecting.  Time to use them up!!  The melon shape was cut using my AccuQuilt cutter.  Hand appliqued down on a charm square.   Squares were trimmed to 4 1/2 inches, to get them the same size.  Outside border, square in a square, I also used charm squares.  Size is approx., 60.5 x 85.5   This will be machine quilted, sometime in the future.

Lisa, I sort my scraps primarily by size; as in width, e.g. 1-1/2" x length; 2-1/2" x length, etc. (The smallest pieces I keep are 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" square.) Then when I need pieces in that width I go to that bin to find it, and while there will often sort into color.

HI ladies. Hope everyone is doing well. Im glad to get back here. i have missed everyone but life decided to get in my way for a few years.

Janet that quilt is awesome. love the colors

Sherri- i love the blues

so hope the holiday season was good for everyone.

mine was different and very slow and quiet.

Ladies --- i do have a question. How do you sort your scraps? in size or colors or what? i am limited since i have a very small apartment. My living room is my sewing room since i dont have a lot of people visiting me. i just need some ideas. i do havce shoe boxes and clear smaller totes.I am just befuddled how to organize the scraps.
