Let’s talk about Mini Quilts, specifically the art of a MODERN MINI QUILT. There are many things I adore about modern mini quilts, but mostly I make them because of their versatility and how they really don’t use much quilting fabric! If you have lots of fabric scraps to use up, mini quilts are always a great option! I actually made this modern quilted wall hanging entirely out of scraps from a previous quilt. Now grab some fabric scrap from your stash and let’s dive in!
If you consider yourself a quilter or a sewist, it’s very likely you have more than a few scraps of fabric laying around somewhere! This blog post is meant to inspire you to use up some of those fabric scraps by sharing 7 different scrappy sewing projects to try!
When it comes down to deciding to save fabric scraps or throw them out, my personal opinion to answer the age-old debate of “how small is too small to keep” is whether or not you can and will use it in a scrappy sewing project! Luckily some of these scrap-friendly projects use pieces as small as 1″ wide (and some use larger pieces too). I personally consider pretty much any fabric piece that is less than a Fat Quarter small enough to be deemed a “scrap”. To see how I organize my fabric, you may want to check out this post.
