Blue Thread

It started with having blue thread in the machine.  So I grabbed my aqua scraps and started piecing.

I had a lot of strings so for one section after piecing I cut 3.5″ squares, spun them 90 degrees, and sewed them together again.  After one evening, I had three panels.  After the second evening,  there was 5 panels and two handles.

I changed the dimensions slightly from the one hour basket,  and I’m planning that using the individual panels keeps this more square.   Isn’t appropriate to be able to store my scraps in a basket made from scraps?

Oops, my camera was set on selective colour.  Let’s try that again.

What colour should I make next?  Linking to Scraptastic Tuesday and TGIFF with Chezzetcook Modern Quilts.


  1. Fantastic use of scraps ; )

  2. Great use of scraps. Love the pop of pink in the handles.

  3. Love this basket!
    A great way to use your scraps and a pretty reminder of your creativity!
    I love Pink and think you should try that next! Who doesn’t need a pink basket!? =D

  4. One basket for each colour of scraps I think! Lovely idea and basket. Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday

  5. These are going to be so cute! Such a good idea. I may have to copy you and make some baskets to destash a bit. I wonder if I have scraps on all of the colors? Maybe red next?

  6. I love the scrappy basket, great use of the scraps and probably some great scrap holders, too. So maybe one in each color 🙂

    1. I still have a lot of aqua scraps to fill it up, and I definitely need to pick out the next colour!

  7. I like piecing that way and the basket is so cute.

  8. A great scrap buster, and where better to store more scraps! Lovely!

  9. Fun! I often don’t want to change thread and go with it 🙂 Pretty basket!

  10. baskets are awesome! Love yours and blue is my fave color. Thanks for linking up!
