Scrappy Patchwork

After a very hectic work week and the day's invigorating discussion over on Instagram, what felt manageable when I had a little time to sew last night was a Patchwork Bucket. I had made one before using the tutorial by Chase/quarter inch mark, though this time I dug through my scrap basket to piece it together.

This one has an 8" diameter and is 8" tall - perfect for the neutral scraps I've gathered working on my modern sampler blocks. The only change from Chase's tutorial is that once again, since I didn't have the suggested webbing, I used Noodlehead's handle method from her Cargo Duffle pattern {check out Step 4}. It was handy that once I trimmed down my quilted scrap piece to size, there was enough to 
use for the handles. All in all a relaxing little project, which has since been filled with the aforementioned scraps, finding a home on one of my R├ůSKOG carts. Mission accomplished.

Linking up with Scraptastic Tuesday.
