Hi, Debbie. Glad you joined the Scrap Bags group. With small pieces as you described, I usually end up doing a miniature paper-pieced project. I can point you to some good (free) patterns on the internet if you're interested. As an alternative, you could just start sewing them together randomly and create a new fabric that could be sub-cut or used as a colorful backing for placemats or project that won't need lots of quilting.
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
