Playing with my scraps!

Last night I sat at my sewing machine for a few....and had a little fun with my scraps!



When putting these together I finger pressed as I went..finger pressing is when you don't use an iron..you use your finger and press the fabric, making a crease as good as you can with your finger.  It makes it go much faster than stopping each time after each stitch to iron.
Although when doing this my blocks were pretty wavy and bubbly.  Well the solution to that is this:

 
You spray this starch alternative all over the block..pretty good and iron..iron..iron..walah!  A flat stiff block.. I squared my blocks to a 10 inch square.  It's a fun way to use up all those scraps.  I'm definitely going to make more of them!  Not sure what I'm going to do with them yet?
