Well, I already claim to be crazy, so showing you this shouldn't hurt my reputation at all, right?
mini coffee cup quilt that I am working on. Most people would throw these scraps away.....and that is great! It's the sane thing to do. However, I had a feeling that they had potential. I trimmed the corners at a 45 degree angle, which produced instant fusible micro geese!
I had a lot of fun playing with different arrangements, but settled on this simple configuration. I was afraid that the quilting would distort it, but there were no problems whatsoever. Hurray!
The scraps are teeny, tiny....
...but they make a mighty fine mini quilt! I really LOVE how it turned out! It measures 14 1/2'' x 19 1/2''. It's scrap project #126!
This mini would make a good partner for my frugal gal mini quilt....and I just may turn them into a series. I'm so excited to see where that will take me! Hurray for small scraps!
Now it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thanks for joining me for finish it up Friday!
This is so stunning! I wouldn't have been able to throw away those bits either. ❤️
Oh they are so cute, just so incredibly teeny tiny!! So what are you going to do with the rest off the scrap!!? How tiny is too tiny?
This mini is too cute! I love the tiny triangles and the quilting.
oh - my - goodness!!! That is totally crazy, and totally amazing at the same time. I would have never thought to actually use such tiny pieces, you totally rocked it!!
Tiny in size but enormous in cuteness!
ha ha, yes, you continually live up to your name !
very nice tho, I love it too.
Love this one and your frugal mini quilt. Great together!
Great use of scraps! Love it!
Such a gorgeous little project - and no you're not crazy!! I love the way your binding is so exact with the dots making such neat little triangles.
Very creative use of teeny tiny scraps! Bravo! I love the negative space.
Crazy but so amazing! What huge impact these tiny scraps have against all that sweet negative space. I love this!
I LOVE this!!! Those are some teeny, tiny geese!
Wowzers! Teeny Tiny! Baby geese! Ahhh!
That is absolutely insane, but also absolutely adorable! Makes me want to drag out my red scraps!
Nice! I see it and any others as place mats. Which to me would be so interesting on a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner table. Maybe even to dress up the Sunday dinner table.
OH my gosh! I LOVE them! I keep random little pieces too. You just never know! Beautiful quilt! :-)
Beautiful! They look so crisp in their rows. Have you seen the #miniminiquiltswap trend on Instagram? There is a lot of other fun tiny sewing inspiration there if you are interested.
That is so cute!
That is super sharp looking. Would also be interesting as an energetic ticker-tape quilt.
Those are super, duper, cute!!!
Yes, you are crazy, but in an absolutely super way. These are so cute. I have many scraps like that too, and I might try this one day. Thanks for great inspiration.
This is really cute, Amanda Jean! Such teeny tiny little pieces...
This is adorable!!! If only I'd seen this before the trash went out... the trimmings from my heart blocks would have been perfect for this!!! Next time;-)
Yes crazy!! You win every award for scrap usage :) It really is beautiful too!
I love the tiny sweetness of this one! :)
I never keep smaller scraps. But you have me rethinking that now! This is a gorgeous little mini and it looks fabulous in red. The quilting really makes it!
Your mini mini is adorable!!
You did it again! Something fresh, fun and simple!
Love this!! Such and easy and appealing use for the kind of sticky scraps I'm always seeming to make.
Amazing. Such tiny triangles. Great finish!
You are crazy!!! And so funny! And that little mini is spectacular!!!! And the geese around here are already flying North, too!!!
Love every inch of that little quilt!
Perfect in every way! The quilting, the tiny geese, the Good Neighbors binding, it's so cute! May I ask which fusible you used?
Great things come in small packages - it is so CUTE!
A crazy thing to do, maybe, but gorgeous! And the quilting, beautiful!
I am relieved to see they are fused. I thought you pieced them. THAT would be crazy but a shade of crazy that would look good on you. ;)
Your tiny geese are adorable. They look stunning on the cream background.
OMG this is so great Amanda, I almost throw away my tiny triangles, I think I'm going to make this!! thanks for sharing !!
Oh, my goodness, it's adorable! XO
I had just gotten comfortable with throwing away tiny leftovers. Guess I'll have to start saving everything again! Great inspiration!
Sweet!!! I save itty bitty scraps and even trimmed edges just because they look cool. The difference is you actually use them to make something fun. Mine get put into jars and bags.
so lovely and ready for Valentines day!
It might be crazy, but it looks delightful!
Crazy, like a fox Amanda! LOL
This is wonderful! Now I know what to do with my handle trimmings too!
Wow, I love seeing what you make with these scraps. But I'm so glad it's not me that has to make something with them!
I was hoping you would just how you cut them. That is absolutely adorable. I have bags of tiny scraps I'm too chintzy to throw away!! What a great idea!
just so awesome - Love it !!
So cute! I love the straight line quilting and the colour of the background fabric. Yet another inspiring project from you!!
Crazy Mom, I love your little quilt and you made me laugh!
That was a pretty cute mini quilt
Thanks for sharing
Oh my goodness this is so adorable!! Can quilts be adorable?! Haha!
But really this is a great one. You did an awesome job. Thanks so much for sharing. :)
Love this! and you are bomb!
Your going to turn me into a mini geese hoarder. In 10 to 15 yrs my children will find me covered in teenie tiny fabric geese. " Sorry kids, they're so cute, I can't depart without them

That is simply adorable. So tiny! And I love red and white. So classic.
