Improvisational foundation paper piecing: I have accumulated a lot of scraps in making my diamond quilt - more than I have for any other piecing, actually. I think for a beginner like me, foundation paper piecing might have this side effect. All the scraps are weird, uneven, small triangular shapes. I decided the only thing to do was to foundation paper piece them together - but this time, just improvise without a pattern.
I sewed scrap after scrap onto pieces of plain paper and it was really fun! Once trimmed, they look pretty good, I think. I have a few blocks so far and I think I’ll make some more. I’m always happy when I’m able to make something with scraps that might otherwise go to waste.
