Do you follow Bonnie Hunter on Quiltcam? Recently I've been watching & learning how she paper pieces scraps & strings onto paper & finally gave in to try some myself as I have a fair size tub of scraps accumulating.
Of course Lucy was there right in the thick of it helping pick out some strings and quite a mess was created!
The blocks are then joined together, either in rows or units of 4, which ever way you prefer to work....
Initially I was starting to use just the repro scraps but then decided to follow Bonnie's advice & mix it all up, even using smaller crumbs joined together to form a strip and odd left over half sq triangle units, 4 patches, whatever, you name it, in it goes!
If you just fancy mindless sewing to use up those odds & ends, this is a great project. I'm really enjoying the process and the end result :)
Since starting this, I've discovered that Bonnie has a free pattern for this (minus the black) on her blog here
