As the year comes to a close it can be a good time to clear out your collection of scrap materials that have built up during a year of quilting. Patterns for scrap quilts are fun ways to use up all your stored scraps of material. Even if you don’t have an extensive scrap collection you can still make a fun scrap quilt with packages of pre-cut fabrics in any pattern or theme you can think of.
Small Projects for Small Pieces of Cloth
Maybe you only have a few scraps hiding with your quilting supplies, or you might have many scraps but all in small pieces. Either way, a small project is the perfect way to use up your supply of scraps. The Flower Magnet message board can help you use your scraps, as well as keep your family organized. When you use your favorite coordinating scraps you can transform a boring metal message board into something fun to use.
Little Pieces of Fabric Can Go a Long Way
