Tuesday Tutorial ~ Scrap busters

It's no secret I love scrap quilts. All that color and oh the memories those little bits of fabric hold. And if you've quilted for very long you probably have a scrap bin. Well I thought it would be fun today to share a few scrap busting ideas. 

This first one is for all those strips and strings. You can find the tutorial here.
This postage stamp star block takes the tiniest of pieces. I have made this into a quilt at least once, but can't seem to find a picture. The tutorial can be found here.
This x &+ block is pre-cut friendly so if you have parts of charms, jellyrolls and layer cakes.  Try this tutorial.
It makes a beautiful quilt.
Finally these scrappy star blocks in multiple sizes can be mixed and matched. 
Hope this gives you some ideas on scrap busting. If you make a quilt let me know I'd love to see your scrappy creation.

  6. Beautiful ideas! I love the scrappy stars, I've been accumulating a pile of 'bonus triangles' I need to sew together. These would be perfect!
