On My Design Wall - Su{Brrr}nova Scraps

Those who have been following for a while know one of my goals for this year is to make better use of my scraps -- my Scrap Bin Mission.

This is a project that is being made entirely with the scraps from Su{Brrr} least so far.

I sewed up all the little leftover triangles from Su{Brrr}nova into more HSTs and then trimmed them to 2" squares.

I played around on my design wall until I found this design that I love.

Scraps from Su{Brrr}nova
I needed about 40 more HSTs for the outside blue diamond so I made them using the remnants of the backing and the blue fabrics. I still haven't cut into any yardage. The diamond medallion is about 28" wide at the moment.

I took the stripe HSTs and arranged them so they look like they are spinning.

Loving this arrangement so far...and it'll hang on my design wall as I quilt Hard Core so I can contemplate what to do next...

What are you working on?


  1. This looks pretty! I like the little spinning ones too. I'm still in pouch making mode so I work on those and I'm using some scraps as well.

  2. I love this! I am a big fan of HSTs so there is no surprise here. I am working on a Granny square quilt using a Jelly Roll, cuz I felt like starting a new project! ;)

  3. Very nice! What a great use of scraps. If you had not told us the fabrics all came from your scraps, the top looks like it was planned from yardage. Can't wait to see the finished project.

  4. Nicely done! You are such an inspiration, M-R!

  5. Oh, this is terrific! I love your ingenuity!

  6. A true quilt achievement--taking scraps which would otherwise be thrown out to make a beautiful creation. Love to see what you do next.

  7. looks great, I love white background :) I'm working on pineapple blocks, you might have seen it

  8. I love 2" triangle squares. This is a great setting for your scraps.
