Stash Diving

It's been a year since I last found a scrap bag worth buying at the thrift shop. Maybe they aren't as plentiful as they once were -- or maybe I've just got bad timing. I can't complain too much, since the fabric I found last November has been sitting untouched in a tote ever since.

Now a bunch of it is cut into 2" strips, ready to be assembled into sixteen-patch blocks for the new experiment. And in one of those flashes of luck that you only get with scrap bags, a lot of the fabric was already cut into pretty accurate 3 1/2" strips -- which means that I divided each into a 2" strip for the experiment and a 1 1/2" strip for Scrappy Little Trips.

Took a look at both of your scrappy projects, looks great. I was digging through my scrap bins this morning. The plan was to start a new project but I ended up just petting them for awhile and putting them all back in the bins.
