What ever do you do with the triangle scraps that multiply when you make binding?? I have an off/on relationship with mine; sometimes I save 'em, and sometimes I toss 'em. I'm currently in the saving stage and plan on making a quilt like this.

The quilt pattern is Up, Up and Away in Sunday Morning Quilts by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison. I noticed the pattern in this book a few years ago and had an ah-ha moment this week when I remembered this book is the one that has this neat pattern for using binding triangle scraps!
So far I have a pile of triangles and squares and the book. The squares were easy to cut when I mis-cut some fabric this week. I just kept cutting to get the size stated in the pattern. What I'd like to do is take one day a month where I work on the blocks, and maybe that will happen ... or not. No pressure if it doesn't. This, of course, will be an ongoing project because it takes almost 600 triangles to make a smallish lap quilt. At an average of 10 triangles per quilt (2 at each join), that's 60-ish quilts!!
Anyway, if any of you care to join me, I'll create a link-up so you can share your progress.
