Bands of stacked coins and a few strings make a great use it up or waste not style quilt. Perfect to have on hand for a donation quilt, too. I used mixed black strings as separator bands for the stacked coins.
That is one thing Bonnie Hunter mentioned about her scrap quilts......she usually uses one consistent color in the block/ in the border / or in the sashing to bring some unity to all the chaos. It may not be the same fabric, but the color will be close. Take a second look at some of her quilts to see what I mean.
Looking back, I realize I have used the color consistency thing as a design element....just not as much as I should. For me it is pleasing to the eye. I often will mix different prints of blue or black or etc for inset strips.
Quick meandering all over for the quilting gives a soft effect when washed. And the binding is a long mixture of leftovers from other quilts.
A little cutting is happening too.....just getting those scraps under control and into usable sizes. I actually found a place to sort and store them. I will share more on that as things get into place :)
Remember Enjoy .....happy stitching.
