0809 busy bee tapestry scraps

BUSY BEE Tapestry Scraps 45″ x 63″


I cut up all of my old scraps into 5″x 9 1/2″.  That size is big enough to use up the odds and ends once and for all.  These 5″x 9 1/2″ are great for all kinds of quick quilts with our patterns and variations of our patterns.  Just about any patterns that call for 5″x10″ or 5″x 9 1/2″ can be used.

When Mom could no longer sew, I gave her stacks of these pieces and had her make pairs for me to use in donation quilts.  This version of BUSY BEE uses all 5″x 9 1/2″, instead half of the blocks being made with 3 1/2″x 9 1/2″.  It works up the same, and I used 35 blocks and no 5″ squares borders, so it made up even more simply for the same size.
