Week 1: Sort Scraps or Choose Precuts
Scrappy Version (Click here if you are using charm packs, layer cakes, fat eighths, or fat quarters)
This week we will be choosing our fabrics for our Entropy Scrap Along! The modified pattern uses the following scrap sizes: 4.5", 5", 7.25", & 10" squares to make background squares and half square triangles. To quickly sort your scraps into usable scraps that can be cut down to the following sizes follow these tips. Click Here for the printable templates and labels.
- Print off the labels and attach to containers. Boxes, baskets, sacks and mini totes work great. Don't forget to add a discard container (label not included) to save the scraps that won't work for this project for another.
- Print off the size templates to quickly sort scraps into the correct sized bins.
Use the templates to make sure the scrap is usable. The scrap needs to be larger than the template, if there is any question or if it is a hair too small, put it in the size below.
The above picture shows a scrap that almost works, but is slightly too small and should be placed in the size below scrap bin, while the bottom scrap picture shows a scrap with enough allowance on each side to cut down to a 5" square.
