I have a major recycling project on my hands at the moment. I had to pull out my spare sewing machine to lend to a friend (her machine had completely frozen, I think it might be rust.) And when I got it out from under the bench I found 2 big bags of scraps from my last quilt. I'm glad I didn't put them in the bin because I have been able to make 16 place-mats from those bits and pieces, or I will once I get them going.
I have now pieced all the small pieces of wadding and off cuts and layered my mats ready for quilting.
The first 6 are from a piece I found at Vinnies a while ago. It was a cat print, so not technically part of my off cuts, but it is recycling.
I am way behind on my 50 place-mats for charity but this effort, when I finish, should put me within striking distance.
