Being I am a scrap quilter, I have a LOT of scraps and enjoy playing in them. I don't ever want to use them up, just tame them from time to time. I was so glad to join SARAH @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict (this takes you to her end of year review) and really tackle those bits of goodies.
The borders on the Gail Pan stitchery - left over binding bits.
LORNA'S fabulous pattern - Mod Bear Paw - entirely of scraps and left overs from other quilts. I have to admit this was THE quilt for the year.
The mini key chain purses - free pattern under my tutorial tab. Between the commission that started the creation for this pattern, those gifted, those sold, and those in the shop - I think I have made 50 of these so far.
Three baby quilts to use up solids, 30 prints and some brights.
The watercolor large wallhanging using Marti Mitchell's method of using different 'shapes' to acheive the affect.
This cute project with Podunk Pretties was completed with scraps.
Some 'found' pinwheels to use up more solids and left over JR strips.
My 'nifty nines' charity quilt with Sarah's pattern during Hands2Help.
Wovens and plaids for a fun little piece.
The 'Amish Nines' used up some left overs nicely.
Another Amish mini to use up those much valued bits of Marcus fabrics.
And as I scrolled thru the year - a lot of blocks!!! Yes, Sarah's group got a couple of boxes of those - love sending them on. I have several BOMs and QALs that used all scraps, too - but those aren't finishes. Work for next year.
Sarah plans some 'starry' quilt patterns to help us along with Hands2Help 2017 and I will use the Scrap Challenge again to play with these because I have a 32 gallon tote filled with new bags of gifted scraps not even looked at yet!
