Actually, I can see a slight reduction in my scraps, or maybe it's just wishful thinking. There is even a reduction in one of my scrap drawers. (Did I mention that I have a dresser of scraps, and then some? Actually, I know there is a scrap reduction because my 10 gal trash can is half full of the trimmings. ) I have all the lap quilt blocks made, the sashing cut out and half of the sashings made. This project is going much faster than I expected. I had measurement problems with the sashings at first, then I decided to begin with larger squares then cut them down. I hate pressing, but I found that I needed to use spray sizing and heavy pressing on the square plus triangle pieces before doing the PPing.
