Today I am linking to the monthly Scraptastic Tuesday. There are lots of other bloggers linked so if you like scrap quilts, check them out too.
If you have been reading my blog for very long you know I use lots of different fabrics in each quilt. I get bored if there are too few choices in the quilt.
One of my favorite scrap projects is my colorwash quilts. These two are made with 2″ squares, however I work with 2.5″ and 1.5″ squares too. I start out cutting the largest squares from my scraps, then go down in size as the scrap becomes smaller until I have cut it all up.
I made the top piece last night and the bottom one a few months ago.
Here is a link to more colorwash pieces that I have made.
I think the back is pretty neat too.
This is part of my collection of 2.5″ squares. I store them in the disposable aluminum cookie sheets and they nest together. I can stack more than 20 trays in one large storage bin. There is a photo on this post.
Colorwash is achieved through separating values and here is a post that simplifies the sorting.
