Making Yards of fabric from Batik Scraps

DSCN2431I knew when I started that I had no idea what I was going to make from all of Riley’s given scraps. But, I knew I was going to sew up all the batiks into one large piece of fabric and decide what to do later. The only thing I did was to cut every piece into 2 1/2 in strips. All the scraps were pieced and cut into 2 1/2 inch strips. I sewed everything into one long strip. Then I stared sewing the strips in halves until I sewed it all in one huge sheet of batiks. I’ll decide what to do with it all later. It might end up in triangles. LOL!
