Leftovers

Do you like leftovers?  Do you use them or throw them away?  I hate to throw away good stuff, food or otherwise.  In the studio, sometimes I get to the end of a project and have a few little leftover bits of pieced or collaged fabric.  These bits generally go into the scrap pile and I try to think of ways to use them.  In the past they’ve become test pieces for quilting or stitching; I’ve made coasters or used the bits in fabric postcards.

Recently I came across some pieced snippets leftover from one of my leaf projects.  Surely I could make more leaves out of them.  Were they big enough?  The right shape?  After some trial and error and brain gymnastics I came up with these small 3″ square leaf sections.  I decided they’d look just fine set with sashing.  Here I’m trying to get an idea of what that might look like.

Here is the finished piece.
