Scrap Attack sessions, from working with wild bias edges with Completely Cauchy to packaging up scraps into charming granny square blocks with Blue Elephant Stitches. Today is all about getting small. Making little.
Not everyone has an overflowing scrap stash. Some are just starting to gather precious little bits. I asked my friend Ayumi of Pink Penguin to join our Scrap Attack and she brought out this little scrappy masterpiece that makes such a great addition to our quilt-along!
Isn't that adorable! And the scrappy hourglasses are made with 3 3/4" square scraps, finishing at just 2 1/4. Eeek! Those sweet squares in the sashing really do me in.
If you like this, you should know that it's very "Ayumi". She's often making marvelous with tiny, precise piecing. If you're interested in paper piecing, you have to check her out at her blog, Pink Penguin. You can hope over there today to find her Scrappy Hour Glass Tutorial. It's clear and so very to the point. Nicely done, Ayumi!
Remember any scrappy quilt top finished in 2012 can be entered in the Festival of Scrappiness this March. Tiny works like this one or large works all have an equal chance at some yummy door prizes. And, yes, you can enter multiple projects! The more the merrier. If you're new to this Scrap Attack thing, catch all the details, the button and links to all of our posts Right Here. Happy scrappin!
