When I paper-piece quilt blocks I always cut my pieces oversize. I'd rather lose a bit of fabric to trimming than I would have to frog-stitch because I tried to cut the needed piece exactly the size needed and having it turn out to not cover the section of the pattern. With the wedding quilt this means that I've ended up with piles of bonus triangles. With the wedding quilt that has added up to a one-gallon bag filled with the extra solid triangles, and a quart-sized bag filled with the triangles from the striped flying geese blocks.
At this point I'm making two different versions of 3.5" blocks with the pieces of leftover green fabric and will complete the blocks by using the leftover background fabric as well. Will have to add to the background fabrics, but that is doable with my stash.
Many of my quilt designs come from having leftover pieces such as these. this is no different and I have several design possibilities floating around in my head for these.
What do you do with your leftover bits and pieces like these triangles?
