Maybe I'm not seeing it clearly, but I think the info sheet to the right of the quilts says there are 11 quail. I counted 12 if I can count what I think is a quail head :-)

I feel like I am playing Finding Waldo.  Some of what I think are quails could just be blotches.

Hi Joanne

Patti/Sewing Sue ..... LOVE your pictures.   Both are very pretty.  Thanks for sharing.

Joanne - Welcome!   A while back, I tried taking thinner strips (1/2" to 1") and tried making a miniature log cabin with scraps left over from a larger log cabin quilt.  I've also sewn string blocks (not in  a quilt yet) with various strips 1/2" to 2" in width.   I haven't tried foundation piecing yet, but that could be a way to use up small pieces too.

I could not believe how easy it was just this one I have never done any thing else with paper piecing and it could be addicting because it was so easy and turned out so nice. thank you sue

Joanne:

I hate to throw away fabric, no matter how little it is. So, does anyone know what I can do with all of those little pieces of fusible fabric?

I save everything.  Batting and fabric.    A little extra piece of batting under an embroidary makes it really pop out.  I am now doing a string quilt with all the little scraps, (1-2 in) that I had from the quilts I made last year.   The tiny tiny scraps are used with tiny pcs of batting to stuff pillows, dog toys, pin cushions and anything else I can think off.   I have also taken tiny pcs of fabric or batting and put in plastic bag with essential oil, then let dry and use in the pin cushions and pillows, makes them smell great.   There is also something about making confetti hearts etc.  I didn't have much luck with it but think I just didn't remember all the directions and can't find the video. 

Have fun

Sewing Sue, thank you so much.  this is a lovely pattern and something I can use all those little triangles I saved from other quilts that used half square triangles.  You did a very nice job.  Very pretty.

I save scraps and cut them into squares and rectangles down to 3/4" square.  I make miniature quilts from time to time with the pieces.  The larger sized I sometimes give for charity quilts and the very little pieces I use to start fired in our wood stove.  If you have pieces with fusible web just cut into mosaic sized pieces and make pictures or mosaics with them  They also work great on card stock to make special cards from your friends and family.  I am part Scottish - maybe that is where I get my need to not waist anything! LOL
