I’ve been collecting all the tiny fragments of fabric together: all the bits that are just too small for anything else. Mostly these are less than an inch wide/long.
I sorted them into colour groups and then roughly into values, and fused them to squares of very soft lightweight iron-on stabiliser.
The stabiliser is almost weightless and doesn’t seem to be affecting the quality or hand of the fabrics. It’s just a way of keeping them all in place ready for stitching.
When I started arranging scraps on these foundations I didn’t know what I was going to do with the blocks. It started off simply as a way of keeping the tiny scraps together and keeping them tidy.
Once I had a few blocks finished I had quite a few ideas about how they could be useful.
Which proves, if proof were needed, that the best way to begin is to begin.
