Little Bits & Pieces, from Scraps to Masterpiece

After spending all afternoon hidden away on your recliner in for the small room sewing, it is usual for little bits of cloth to be thrown out. One would usually keep the larger pieces, but the crumbs would normally go to the trash. This shouldn’t be the case because even scraps of cloth can be turned into a nice and comfy homemade masterpiece with quilting.

Quilting can usually involve larger pieces of cloth, which may be easier to handle, but even the crumbs after sewing should not be thrown away and can even offer versatility to the design. The pieces of cloth you have gathered over the years can be sewn into squares. Stitches can be simple since you will have to work on a lot of scrap cloth. If you want to gather scraps of the same color or shade, you may opt to do so. As you sew the squares together, you may iron them for easier handling as you build on the larger quilt.

The process is easy and requires a bit of patience, but it can be fun, entertaining, and rewarding, especially since this is a way to be creative with colors and scraps. You may also use scrap clothes of similar texture, so the result won’t be uncomfortable to use. What would really take time is gathering and stitching the pieces of cloth together, but it is definitely an eco-friendly way to lessen trash. You may end up with creatively colorful results, such as these pictured below. A jumble of mess has never looked so comfy and pretty.
