Scraptastic Tuesday


When I saw this pretty button on someone's blog, I just had to check it out.  Naturally anything scrappy play grabs my attention so I had to join in with Leanne over at She Can Quilt.


And it helped (or didn't) that my Mother had just passed on a box of scrap strips from a quilt she just finished.  I pulled my zip bags of left over light JR strips.

A lot of cute 3" log cabins - I'm paper piecing these due to the woven fabrics as it give a little more hold to them that regular piecing would.  You can find a lot of free printable size and shape cabin blocks with Google Search.  I'm using a free pattern from Christa Quilts found HERE.


And adding to the pile of blocks - not sure where these will go or how many - will just keep 'logging' until those scraps are gone and maybe by then a plan will develop.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  10. I've been looking at scraps for two days now -- but not to sew! Luckily, I'm enjoying the organising process now that I've found the containers I needed at a price I was willing to pay! And next year, when RSC comes around, I'll be ready with pre-ironed and cut scraps! And I have the beginnings of several more quilts too!

  11. I have been scraptastic since I retired, or should I say, stash-tactic, lol. I have purchased very little fabric, and have been dipping into my scrap containers every chance i get.
