Stash Busting the Modern Way

I've been feverishly working through my stash of scraps. It's time to get rid of all the strips, squares and orphan blocks that have accumulated through the years. My goal is to use every little piece that has been hanging around and weighing me down.

I didn't want to make a standard scrap quilt this time so it was time to do some research. In my searches of Pinterest and the web I've come across images of Modern Quilts that appeal to me. I love this image from TeaGinnyDesigns

and I cannot remember how long I've been wanting to do an x & + quilt like the one in this tutorial by BadSkirt

So now it's time to try to turn my old style pile of scraps into something modern and playful like this. Wish me luck!

Using things up is such a wonderful feeling! I love the way your scraps are looking together!
