What to do with a mountain of fabric scraps?????

I am coming up on the 2 year anniversary of opening my Etsy shop.  Earlier this month, I made up my mind to do something with the growing volume of fabric scraps that I have hoarded accumulated over the months.

I did have them organized by color in bins.

I am a huge Pinterest fan and go there often for inspiration.  I found a blog post by Lori Holt that got me started -

After reading through Lori's post, I started wading through my scrap piles and cutting strips of fabric.

I then started using the "Leaders and Enders" technique (also described in another post by Lori Holt - ) to sew my little scraps together.

I no time, I had a stack of pieced blocks that I used to make two fun quilted pillow covers.
