Several years ago, I picked up a library copy of Cut the Scraps, thinking I'd just look at the patterns. But I read the author's scrap method and it took over my thoughts for a few days, and eventually I decided that cutting scraps into usable sizes made a lot of sense. So I started with her sizes (5", 3.5", and 2" squares) and quickly added in 2.5" squares. I also cut 2.5" strips if I have WOF, and I'm about to add 2.5" x 4.5" rectangles to my sizes. I like having precut sizes ready to go, and I've used my squares for several projects, including blocks for hivemates in the Stash Bee.
My current scrap project are 2 jelly-roll-race style quilts made using strip scraps given to me by my friend Snow. Both were pieced with purple sparkly "spacers" in between scraps. I have decided I don't really like the jelly roll race pattern for scraps, so hopefully these will be my last using this method, which is part of why I said earlier that I was about to start cutting 2.5" x 4.5" rectangles--I think that will create a nicer look from scraps of strips than the jelly roll race.
