Here is a block I want to get more made of. This is low volume and neutral pieces that are small. This is 1.5 inch strips that make the rounds with a 2.5 inch center. You can make this as large as you like. I think mine is about 9.5 inches. This is a scrap buster for sure.
Yes the more I cut the more mess I make, but when I get to them I have everything ready. Don't be afraid to cut and save small pieces. They do come in handy when a small piece is needed.
Rethinking what you use in your quilting techniques can change your quilting life when it comes to throw away or save this. Chris
