Anniversary scrap swap activity. Randomly pick 3 crayon colors. Your scrap fabrics are to match the crayon color palate allowing for variations in tints, tones, and shades. Your scrap baggy may also have a neutral of your choice – white, beige, gray or black. Bring baggy of scraps to next meeting. We will blind swap the baggies. Swappers will then meet with their partner to discuss design options. Makers are to create at least a 12” X 18” table topper and may add one color.
