Fabric Scraps? Make Something With It! I Made a Scrap Map!


I was dying to use up some of my fabric scraps and had come across this amazing map of the USA on pinterest. I was totally inspired to make one of my own! However I wanted mine to be on a burlap backround! I just love my burlap!! Stop on over to the little green bean on instagram to see what else I have been up to!
I literally just grabbed 50 scraps and got to work! Don't worry about matching here. Trust me!
I cut each state out from a different scrap
Add to burlap, my favorite!
Then I started to sew! I loved everything about this project!
Now I can not wait to get it hung up in my room!!! Keep those scraps handy!!

    Where did you find the map or the states to do this?? I have been wanting to do something like this. Where did you find the pattern for this piece or quilt??

      I visited my AAA office & asked for a USA map, traced around each state & cut them out. Ready to cut my scraps!

      I copied a map from google images and took it to Staples to have it enlarged. I had two made in case I wanted to make another one. I have since had it quilted and it is now hanging in my living room. It was so much fun to make.

    We have one of those sticker maps you put on the side of your RV to show what states you have visited. I saw this and thought wouldn't it be fun to map a quilt and just add to it as we visit states.
