My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey

Scrappy Finishes

Happy Friday!

Two of my 2021 goals are:

  1. Organize my scraps.
  2. Use my scraps – adding the event “scrap time” to my daily planner.

Unfortunately, I can sadly report that I have not accomplished much in organizing my scraps!

I have several large plastic containers under the bed in one of my guest bedrooms full of Ziploc bags!  Those bags contain “leftovers/scraps” from previous projects I’ve made.

Last week I pulled out the Katarina Roccella Ziploc bags from the projects I made here and here, below is what I made….

Crooked Courthouse Pillow

Inspiration from this project came from the scrap queen Bonnie Hunter! I used her tutorial found here.

Boxy Heart Pillow

I love paper piecing…this was a free pattern from the Seasoned Homemaker found here.

Off-Center Half Square Triangle Pillow

I used the bonus triangles from the snowball block from the quilt here to create the layout for the pillow. I had just enough of the black and white fabric for the border to fit the pillow form I had on hand.

Improv Pouch

I made two QAYG improv panels and used them to create a wristlet pouch. It’s a perfect size for my hot rollers or make up the next time I travel.

What are your favorite scrap projects?

Happy Sewing!

  2. Hi Karla, such a great use of scraps!! I may just have to pull some scraps and make new pillow covers for the living room… the ones there now have become a little stale 😉
