scraps?

I forgot to mention that I was working out an idea for these scraps yesterday.
yes scraps.
these are the leftovers from cutting my applecore shapes with the GO! cutter from a few months back.
These are the 'inner' fabric from the core 'curve'.
I just couldn't throw them away!
I am thinking of raw edge appliqueing them.
I'll show more as this project progresses.

Wonderful idea! I have the apple core die and haven't used it yet. Now I know not to throw out the centers, thank you!

Great idea! Bonus from the accuquilt!

Janet said...

That's two quilts for one, I love that shape and it's going to make a great quilt.

Jackie said...

Great idea!! Looking forward to seeing more.

That's going to be beautiful, Vicki! And I can see why you couldn't bring yourself to throw them away!

for sure that was too much waste to throw away - I love scrap quilts and would have kept it also.

Vickie, these are really great "scraps"! It would have been a crime to toss them. Raw edge applique sounds perfect for this project. Have fun with it!

Very very fun! :)

Marie said...

Two for the price of one. You can't beat that - and I love the look.

Needled Mom said...

Oh yes...that would be beautiful!!!!

I made a similar designed penny rug!! Very colorful. Do you like your Go Cutter? I am a new quilter and I'm not sure if it is worth the money and if it cuts perfectly.

Barb said...

Oh....I just love it!!!

Varga Györgyi said...

How lovely IDEA Vicki! You are a really GREEN quilter!

Michele said...

What a great idea....using the scraps and the raw edge appliqué! I've been meaning to try that type of appliqué, but I'm spending too much time blogging to do it! LOL!!

Michelle said...

What a bonus, cutting for two quilts at the same time, it looks great too!

Karen said...

Love it! Looking forward to seeing how it ends up.

sophie said...

I couldn't have thrown them out, either. It looks like you've got a great design idea developing.

The Purple Turtle said...

I made a few things with that shape!!

too bad i had to cut them all out - by hand!

The raw-edge applique is a great idea, and it will turn out beautifully!

Scrappy quilts are my absolute Favorite kind of quilts and the fact that it's a twofer seals the deal. Hope to make it back tomorrow.

Thearica said...

I have seen this done a few times and I LOVE it! I have been vowing to do one myself but haven't. Seeing you do it brings it back to the front again...hmmm.. Might be a good project for a sew in with a friend!

Eileen said...

It's so cute already! I can't wait to see more! :)

Teri said...

Can't wait to see the book. I like using Charm packs, (one) they are good in price and (two)you can make all kinds of stuff with them.

Booklogged said...

I'm a relatively new quilter and am afraid of those curves but love the way they look. Best wishes with your project.

Vesuviusmama said...

Well, of course you can't throw them away! What wonderful scraps!

Megan said...

Someone may have already said this, but it looks like the pieces from a Joseph's Coat Quilt.
